Influenced by the likes of Gojira, Lamb of God, Tool & Slipknot, Akkadian are here to provide monstrous riffs and intriguing metal, mixing this with their fascination with inter-dimensional space travel and ancient history to take you on a journey like no other. The bands name itself is said to be derived from the Mesopotamian Empire.
‘Agenda’ is only Akkadian’s third single to be released since their formation in 2018, two tracks ‘Black Sand’ and ‘Emanation’ where released in 2019 and received positive feedback from outlets across the UK.
Despite this being the bands third single to date, the band have formed an impressive hardcore fanbase, accumulating over 1,000 likes on Facebook alone as well as being booked at multiple festivals around the UK, including Derby Alt Fest which is set to take place this year in October.
Vocalist Danny Thurston spoke about the track:
“We wanted a fast, hard-hitting, groovy song with a big psychedelic theme that takes you on a journey through time and space. The track musically was influenced by bands such as Gojira and Tool. But the video itself was just something we wanted to visually grab people the second they see it.” – Vocalist Danny Thurston
In addition to this release, Akkadian have ‘an albums worth of material’ waiting to be released and further single releases expected to be released in the near future.
Overall, these guys are exactly what you want from a Metal band, they’re heavy, they’re extremely talented & they put on a f***ing good show! The new single is monstrous and we can clearly see their influences all mixing together, it is really like Gojira & Lamb of God had a baby and that baby is Akkadian.
It’s bands like these guys that make us very excited, it really shows that Rock & Metal is NOT dead and there is plenty of talent yet to come!
“Akkadian are THE next big thing and will soon be taking the world by storm” – Rock Lifestyle UK
