The Rogue Records America roster just keeps growing, now including the addition of Tampa, FL six-piece progressive metal band Akeldama.
The band has signed a two-record distribution deal with Rogue Records America. Akeldama announces this relationship with Rogue Records America by releasing a re-mastered and remixed three-song EP, simply titled "Akeldama," for free to anyone who wants it.
The band has also become involved with Project Rogue-Titans with the recent recruitment of both singers Andrew Zink and Connor Reibling.
“These guys just really shook my foundation when I heard them,” said Rogue Records America owner Dean Martinetti. “The landscapes in their music is layered thick and never at any moment loses its momentum or pacing. It’s really just well done. So, we had to ask them if they’d be a part of the family…and thankfully, they said yes.”
Akeldama released first full-length record "Everything Beautiful" on September 6th, 2013. The release was noted for its crushing grooves, lush and ambient atmosphere as well as its elite cast of guest contributors, distinguished artists Ashe O'hara (Tesseract), Keshav Dhar (Skyharbor) and Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry).
Project Rogue is a new crowd funding project featuring existing Rogue Records America artists teaming up with 16 cross-genre metal titans to create a new studio and video project.
