I had to drop this quick article as I’ve just had a chance to listen to Seething Akira’s “I Am The Devil” and it is… awesome. A band that absolutely blew me away at Bloodstock this year – without a doubt one of the best acts of the entire weekend, on any of the stages – they mix hardcore dance with pounding metal beats. This is not an easy blend to get right and, much as I Ioved their live set, I was apprehensive about how it would sound through headphones.
I had no need to be nervous. “I Am The Devil” is simply belting. If this is any indication of what we have to expect from upcoming debut album Sleepy Skeletor early next year then put me down for one of the first copies.
