SSSPEAKING OF SSSEATTLE…
I thankfully got to see the Seattle power trio Akimbo play earlier this year in Austin, TX, at SXSW 2007 and they did not disappoint. Their prolific back catalog is filled with pulsating, punk-tinged metal and occasionally Motorhead-ish aggression throughout, but their sound has certainly evolved over the last seven years and so therefore it may take checking out tracks from a few different albums to find an appropriate match that will not disappoint you and your discerning taste. Luckily, Akimbo has downloadable cuts from each of their five albums up on their website for your listening pleasure.
As for their new album, Navigating The Bronze, I can’t say much about it as I’ve only heard a few tracks thus far, but the band sounds way stonier than ever before, which is usually a good thing.
If you’re in the MetalSucks European contingent (or simply on holiday overseas, you rich bastard!), go see this band tear it up; they’ll be touring across the pond for a few weeks beginning at the end of October.
