This is a very unknown noise, industrial and experimental rock band started in 1992 by three young musicians from the small village of Azkotia, Basque Country (Spain). Since then the band has recorded eight albums and two compilations and despite the good critics and general opinion about AKAUZAZTE, the trio is still very unknown even in its own country.

AKAUZAZTE are the last secret band in Europe. From their H.Q. at the Azkoitia abandonned abbatoir (Matadeixen) over the last twenty years they've always taken their time to perfect their records, their discography is vast, and they've evolved their sound in each one taken risks which few "sacred cows" would take. With these precedents expectations were high for their first 2XLP Etzazuaka, but have nonetheless been surpassed with their turn towards noise, atmospheres and rawness, replacing the primary solemnity and equilibrium between cogency and emptyness. Between the industrial tribalism of Missing Foundation and the crushing force of early Swans (not in vain their rhythmic section is comprised of two drums and two basses) and their own deconstructed version of black metal or power electronics. Most bands in industrial/noise music scenes are markedly urban, Akauzazte on the other hand sound rural, ritualistic and mystical. An oasis of ritual psychedelia and basque industrial "folk" with ancient horn instruments and deteriorated and destroyed guitars that sound as though their amplifiers are about to explode.They are come back recently and have recorded this huge double album on vinyl format full of music, sounds and noises from industrial to tribal to noise or basque folk.
