Akrea were able to establish themselves to an outstanding position in the German metal-scene within the past few years due to their very own composition of Melo-Death-Metal with Swedish influence and striking German lyrics.
In the year of 2013 they force to finally enter the first league of metal sound with their upcoming release “Stadt der toten Träume” (city of dead dreams).
More than ever this album comes up straight and strong with catchy melodies.
… the way to “Stadt der toten Träume”
After the release of their previous album “Lügenkabinett" in the end of 2010 Akrea went on tour with Die Apokalyptischen Reiter and Turisas and numerous festivals in Europe. The positive reactions from media and fans pushed them to work on the present release “Stadt der toten Träume” directly.
Akrea reduced the thrill of speed from “Lügenkabinett” for the benefit of catchy and well-thought-out compositions, especially the refrains.
The atmospheric cover artwork stands for the tune of the album: dark, serious and profound.
The lyrics are inspired by a realm of gloomy phantasies like on the first release “Lebenslinie” which are sometimes also presented as instrumental parts.
Akrea’s passion is the live entertainment – their music is made for the stage and it is their credit to fascinate the audience. So there are some festival shows around the release of “Stadt der toten Träume” announced to present the new songs live to their fans.
The album with a noble artwork will be available on 2nd of August 2013.
By the end of 2014 and after 10 years since their establishment, Akrea broke up due to personal reasons.
