Akurion: Hinting at all sorts of twists in the myth

Akurion - Come Forth To Me

New talented bands are something I really appreciate, and Akurion defenitely belongs to that category.

The  eight song debut album, Come Forth To Me from the band Akurion was engineered and recorded live by Alex Hebert, including overdubs and a majority of guest vocals, at Mastermind Studios in Montreal from April – December 2017 and was mixed and mastered by Jeanne Strieder at Magma Studios in Germany in March of 2018. Gracing the band with their immense talent, the likes of Lord Worm, Luc Lemay, Jean-Marie Leblanc, Sylvia Hinz, Austin Taylor, Genevieve DiSalvo and Jeanne Strieder all contributed vocally or musically to the project.

The story behind Akurion is a rather simple one. It’s a tale of four like-minded, well established musicians from the Montreal underground metal scene that have forged a likely bond through the one great equalizer, the love of crafting tunes out of thin air while developing crushing musical flashes in time. Yet Ye See Them Not live studio performance,

The band was originally teasing this material back in 2015. Due to Mike DiSalvo’s wife’s terminal illness, Genevieve DiSalvo, who sadly left our world in 2018 and Oli Pinard’s schedule once he joined Cattle Decapitation, the band was put on indefinite hiatus until it felt right and everyone was in a good place to move this band forward.

Akurion are a Canadian death metal so-called super group featuring members current and former of Cryptopsy, Cattle Decapitation, Bane, and more. Rob Milley – Guitars – Currently in Neuraxis , Fireside Sessions, Torn Within, Oli Pinard – Fretless Bass – Currently in Cryptopsy, Neuraxis and Vengeful, Tommy McKinnon – Drums -Currently in Conflux, ex-Neuraxis and Augury.

Their debut full length together is a masterful offering, hinting at all sorts of twists in the myth. A wonderfully twisted offering, Come Forth To Me is the sort of death metal record that makes the skin crawl and the body convulse in honor of the sheer brutality that the group conjure up seemingly at will. Few acts delve into the sheer level of potency that comes natural to Akurion.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (3770 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
