Initially conceived in 2009 by Guitarist TK, Akarusa Yami began taking shape in September 2010 when Vocalist Tom Brumpton discussed with him the idea of starting a new band. Both having spent several years playing in other outfits such as Insidious, Cacodaemonic and Kallous; they combined their love of progressive metal with the merciless grinds of industrial music to create their debut album “Ouroborous”. They quickly enlisted Scarlet's Wake Drummer Adam Jones to help bring their malevolent creations to life.
Set for digital release on September 5th 2011, “Ouroborous” is a diverse combination of vicious riffage, scathing vocals, soaring melodies and hyperspeed drum work that’s underpinned by a theme true to the album’s name. Mastered by Tim Turan (Emperor, Plan B), “Ouroborous” takes a step away from the generic and opts instead for something more substantial and defining.
Also, being the generous chaps they are the band are giving away lead track ‘Third Eye, Wide Open’ for free as of April 4th. For your free copy of ‘Third Eye, Wide Open’ head over to soundcloud.com/akarusa-yami on April 4th.
