AllMusic Review by

Choppy and aggressive tides of movement transform themselves over and again amidst a dark mood on this self-titled release from Akarso. Teeth-bared vocals highly reminiscent of Steve Albini (Big Black/Rapeman/Shellac) fit very well into the complex and somewhat scattered yet deadly focused sound. The music continues to shapeshift as it progresses in each song, ranging from broken and minimalistic to spastic and metallic, moving through start/stop rhythm progressions, toward flowing and beautiful reaches, and on into many other interesting places.
