Akaname: an instrumental opus by Akaname

If you crave a big dose of metal without the guttural growls, Akaname’s self-titled third album hits the spot. This instrumental opus is epic without being brutal, rhythmically dextrous without devolving into mathcore, and musically layered without succumbing to Scandinavian-style symphonic bombast. Enjoy this compelling, dark adventure at midnight. And play it loud.
