Akasava are a band from France that plays a psychedelic form of occult rock with some elements of doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Strange Aeons" which will be released in June.
A very dark and psychedelic sounding intro starts off the ep and after the intro the music starts going into more of a 70's proto doom metal direction along with some clean singing vocals that also have a blues rock feeling to them and the solos and leads the band uses also stick to a 70's metal/rock direction.
While the music is heavily rooted in the 70's the music still has a modern sound to it and some of the songs the music speeds up and also adds in a touch of proto punk and on the later tracks the music starts to get more psychedelic and when they add whispers into the songs it gives the music more of an evil atmosphere.
Akasava plays a musical style that takes 70's occult rock, psychedelia and doom metal and mixes them in with a more modern sound, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover occult themes.
In my opinion Akasava are a very great sounding mixture of occult rock, psychedelia and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Join The Ritual" and "The Witch Is Rising". 8 out of 10.
