Not Quite Metal?

Let Jakob Help You Mellow Out

Let Jakob Help You Mellow Out

If you enjoyed the new Pachyderm song that was briefly released earlier this week — or, better yet, the This Will Destroy tracks I posted in response — you are going to love New Zealand’s Jakob. Like TWDY, their music is epic and cinematic, starting out fairly mellow before building to something much louder, if not harsher. It’s pretty much beautiful at all times. It’s not even metal, really, but the band has played shows with Tool and Isis, so I’m considering them fair game.

Jam Jakob’s entire Solace below. The band recently had to cancel a European tour after one of their members was badly injured in an accident. Hopefully he gets back up on his feet soon… and books the band a flight to New York maybe?

Thanks: Rhys
