Akasava Posts "Solitude Of The Goat" Video

Goats and the occult go hand in hand, a tradition French rockers Akasava know well. So it should be little surprise that the new track “Solitude Of The Goat,” recorded at a hometown show in Le Havre, draws on this and warps it to the band’s decade-transcending sound.

“Solitude Of The Goat” is taken from upcoming release due to follow the band's debut EP. More info is coming soon, promises frontman Louis Hauguel. Meanwhile, check out the video below. You can also see Akasava live on these dates:

Akasava Releasing Debut EP

Akasava, a new face to the occult-psych metal scene, will release debut ritual EP "Strange Aeons" in the late Spring of 2015. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"The French have a pedigree in music almost as notable as their taste in film. So when one draws from the other, you can be sure the atmosphere is electric. Make no mistake, occult rockers Akasava pick their influences well: the playful surrealism of Jean Rollin (The Shiver of the Vampires/The Nude Vampire) meets the 70s horror of Jess Franco (Vampyros Lesbos/Exorcism).

"Musically speaking, Akasava also draw from that hazy era of psych and prog in the 60s and 70s. Extraordinary bands ahead of their time, such as 13th Floor Elevators, Jacula and Devil Doll, clash with more modern acts like Blood Ceremony, Purson and Kadavar.

"Despite adoring this occult and ancient sound, Akasava are as fresh-faced as they come: they formed in July 2014, four highly motivated souls finding much common ground, and quickly joining forces to jam out the creativity within them. Now, less than a year later, an EP is coming to light. Entitled Strange Aeons, it's as much an homage to that era as it is pushing the sound forward in new and intriguing directions."

Akasava is:

Louis Hauguel - Vocals, Lyrics
Arnold Lucas - Guitars, Organ
Amélie Gavalda - Bass Guitar
David Touroul - Drums More...
