Hailing from Portsmouth, south coast crossover rap metallers SEETHING AKIRA are stomping a swathe through this increasingly popular genre, twisting and smashing it into their own sound and adding in their unique sense of fun & craziness on the way.
Chewing up influences of the likes of Prodigy, Senser and Enter Shikari, these guys spit out beats, techno twists and huge guitar riffs, and along with the 2 rapping vocalists Charlie and Kit pumping up the energy, they’ve concocted a sound akin to a metal Beastie Boys!
With supports to Hacktivist, The Algorithm, Senser, Don Broco, Black Futures, Sonic Boom Six, PWEI & Heart Of A Coward amongst others as well as several big festival performances under their belt, this bad have proven beyond any doubt that they can hold their own against some of the biggest and best, and if you’ve never seen them live then make sure you get down to a show, they’re seriously worth it!
Their videos don’t quite do their live show justice, you really need to be up front & personal to experience the full on madness & mayhem of a Seething Akira show and with shows and festivals being confirmed each day, there are going to be plenty of chances to catch them.
2015’s going to be a very bright year for this fabulous bunch!
