Honestly, I really don’t know what’s going on these days but we got even more new music! This time it’s the UK-based The Arusha Accord releasing their second single in 2017. It was in 2009 when the band released their latest and debut record The Echo Verses. It’s about time. But take a listen to “Vultures” first!
The song starts a little chaotic, with a mathcore-ish approach and some post-hardcore vibes. A lot of short blasts, compared with shouts transists into the very SikTh-esque clean vocalised refrain. A slight orchestration in the background creates an interesting ambiance, while both vocalists match together perfectly. The Arusha Accord manage to find a balance between progressive instrumentals and catchy vocal lines that do not wash out in the mix. In case you wondered why this single sounds so good, it’s the work of none less than Adam “Nolly” Getgood, former Periphery bass player. The record was recorded in Middle Farm Studios, where recently the guys in Good Tiger tracked their newest record.
Make sure to listen to the first single “Blackened Heart” over here! If you want to get more info about the upcoming record you should listen to our review with the band here! Unfortunately there’s some sad news on this one as well. A lot of us, including me, have surely been stoked for them to appear at this year’s Euroblast in Cologne. It looks like this won’t happen.
As the band stated on the release of the new single:
“Unfortunately we also have some sad news to share. We have had to pull out of this year’s Euroblast Festival due to some personal events away from music. Apologies to anyone who was hoping to watch us play – we promise to return for a later edition in the future.”
Still the lineup of Euroblast is amazing, but lost another great band.
Let’s see who’s going to be the replacement and hope the best!
