AHKENATEN is a Manitou Springs, CO based Middle Eastern black/ death metal project created in 2012 by the Houseman brothers as a side hobby to their full time band Helleborus. With all music arranged by Jerred and vocals done by his brother Wyatt.
Drawing on the diverse wisdom and sound of the ancient world, their debut album “Incantations Through the Gates of Irkalla” was released on December 20, 2015 via Satanath Records (Russia), Murdher Records (Italy) plus Darzamadicus Records (Macedonia). The music expresses the Ancient Mesopotamian themes/ alien theories exploring the forgotten paths of history, extracting unknown lore and threads of truth.
“The album is a mural of epics from Egypt and Mesopotamia. It tells stories of belief, warfare, men and Gods.”
comments Jerred Houseman.
An epic soundscape of exotic, monstrous visions and elusive melodies that haunt like a half-remembered dream. Akhenaten’s flourishing sound is rooted in blackened death metal, suffused with the exotic instrumentation and rhythmic structures of the ancient Near and Middle East. Sharing the exclusive characteristics of bands such as Al-Namrood, Narjahanam, Melechesh and Kartikeya, Akhenaten whispers to the most remote regions of primal memory.
