Morelia straight edge kids Akûma have released a new full length, entitled For The Beloved Bones. The album features eleven songs of epic sludge, doom, and blackened rock and roll.
We spoke to bassist Rigo Andrade about the album:
For The Beloved Bones is our second album, and the first one with our label Magnetic Eye Records. It was recorded in live session; with magnetic tape and ALL analog. Old school. With the intention to capture our live sound, and to make an album that sounds played by humans, not robots. It was recorded in Testa Studio in Leon, Mexico by the producer KB Testa and his assistant Ryan Tezcatlipoca in late July of this year.
We put all of our effort, blood, sweat and tears into this, and we hope that a lot of people can be moved by our music. Mexico is not an easy country to live in, and is even harder if you are trying to make music (specially metal/hardcore related). But here we are, a bunch of guys that have nothing to lose going through a violent, drug infested society, full of prejudice; with nothing more than talent and a lot of things to say. Give us a listen, we promise we don’t [disappoint]. If your stuff is the experimental music with dense, violent sound, we are for you!”
For The Beloved Bones was recorded this summer at Testa Studio in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico; and mastered at New Alliance East, Boston, Massachusetts. The album is available now through Magnetic Eye Records.
