Nicolas RESSOT Oubliez surtout Orphaned land et Myrath ; mais oubliez également Scarab, Nile ou Melechesh, et repentez-vous...les puissances occultes du grand désert sont lâchées ! Un must dans le genre ! Favorite track: Ninurta: The Fall Of Anzu.

Norsk Arisk Akhenaten were a pleasant surprise. Though this particular sub genre of death / black metal with Asia Minor melodies and scales has been explored already by many bands (Nile and Melechesh come to mind as the most prominent but hardly the only ones), Akhenaten bring their own to the table. The Eastern melodies take center stage here more often than not, and it's a bonus, since the writing is always tasteful. Great vocal work and unassuming but excellent guitar riffs that perfectly suit the spirit of the record make for a unique atmosphere and a recommended listening experience. Well done.

sfcr That Death or Black Metal and oriental music can be wonderfully combined is no longer an insider tip since "Nile", "Melechesh" and "Al-Namrood". Nevertheless, "Akhenaten" manage to put their stamp on the unusual style mix.
Deep, demonic growls are enhanced by nasty screams and sometimes so distorted that one might think that the god of the dead Anubis himself is talking to the listener. The guitars are usually really fat, but sometimes also melodic, grooving or even almost rhythmic-danceable.
