After fifteen years of brutal mayhem, Seattle’s beloved Akimbo decided to call it a day in 2012. Live to Crush, their final release, delivers their trademark-style of bone-crushing bass, screeching guitar, pounding drums and tortured vocals; it is nothing short of perfection. Parting is such sweet sorrow.Akimbo barreled their way through the United States and Europe with all the fervor of a demon army bent on conquest. Beginning with their first show on Halloween 1998 and continuing through their final two-hour concert on August 11th, 2012, the band forged a path of righteousness with a thunderous sound and a menacing presence that echoed far beyond the Pacific Northwest. Jon Weisnewski (bass / vocals) and Nat Damm (drums) solidified a unique and devastating sonic battle-axe, decapitating the skulls of their enemies. After years of rotating guitar players, Aaron Walters (guitar) joined in 2006 and proved himself the defining diesel in this engine of pure, flaming, voluminous rock. Live to Crush is the cumulation of their energy focused in one thick slab of vinyl.Available on Record Store Day as a limited-edition, hand-numbered LP, this instant classic will be treasured by fans and collectors alike.
