For majestic, multi-style jams and ambitious music excursions it’s pretty hard to miss out on Argentinian progressive rock trio AKENATHON. Influenced by a range of styles including jazz, tango, folklore, and various subgenres of heavy music, Akenathon released their debut album Peregrino in 2009, and the long-awaited follow-up hit the streets early this year. “Como Hormigas” beholds to no specific narrative, pushing at rock’s limits, deploying multi-varied and unpredictable rhythms and majestic solos with equal command. Today, we’re giving a nod to their organic and dynamic performance, with a special inlay and track by track information in their native Spanish.
Akenathon is: Pablo Olio (bass, vocals), Guillermo Rocca (drums, vocals), Aníbal Acuaro (guitars, vocals).
Although in their first album the proposal is oriented to the song format, in this second opportunity, ten years later, Akenathon travels a completely different path. With six instrumental songs out of a total of eight, the invoked atmospheres, the different climates and the permanent changes of rhythm and structure (always maintaining a common thread); this trio invites us to explore human feelings with a disturbing gaze.
Anguish, loneliness, betrayal, hope, are sensations intertwined in harmony and constant disharmony that seek to keep the listener all time expectant, alert.
