I took some time off from doing this blog. This was mostly as an effort to disconnect more aspects of my life from an online presence.
Then my friend Shawn introduced me to Akallabeth and I just thought "damn, this is the type of band that made we want to start a blog about music".
Akallabeth is a perfect blend of aggression and melody without sounding awkward or forced. Try to picture mid 90's bands like Inkwell or Julia, but with more aggressive vocal styling. The first song has a drawn out clean guitar intro, but stick around, once things get going they are sure to please.
