“Pushing the boundaries” – SURFACE FESTIVAL

– METAL HAMMER Cover-mount CD (opening track)

– Blank TV Video Premier


AKRYA take influence from bands such as Pantera, Metallica, Daath, Machine Head, Anthrax, Testament. For a band influenced like so many by some pretty recurring metal names, AKRYA have achieved their goal of creating something fresh, heavy and listenable.

AKRYA are firm believers that it’s never too late to expand on the foundations laid down by past artists, classing themselves as experimental, a band that will try just about anything and not wanting to confine Akrya to a narrow market of listeners. Glasstone hope you find something new in listening to AKRYA.

The self-titled full length 11 track album was produced & mixed by Greg Brooker (Glasstone Productions) & mastered by leading Swedish melodic death metal producer Fredrik Nordström (Dream Evil, At the Gates, Arch Enemy, Devin Townsend, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, Soilwork & Opeth).

AKRYA have been touring for the last few years alongside hundreds of bands, notably Speed Theory, Casino Brawl & Elias Last Day, with touring planned to coincide with the full release. They have also press including KERRANG! & KERRANG! Radio.

“Hard and heavy Metal-Rock bursting with energy and aggression, they are a band who know exactly how to use their instruments to very high standards. Their technical abilities are well above your average Metal band and AKRYA know exactly how to squeeze the most from their sound and get the crowd going delivering one of the standout performances of the night” – SURFACE FESTIVAL

AKRYA’s full length album is out now on Glasstone Records.
