Alternative Metal with a Hip Hop sensibility, AKB blends unapologetic groove, memorable lyrics, and rhapsodic energy ringing directly into the ears of your teenage self. AKB stays true to the raw power of the 90’s by channelling influences from bands including Limp Bizkit, Korn, Staind, Tool, and Faith No More.

Active in the UAE’s underground scene since 2008, AKB released its first full-length album A Violent Asymmetry on 1.1.15 on all streaming platforms, and has since then opened for several renowned international acts including Paradise Lost, Ektomorf, Steel Engraved, and Space of Variations.

Their new single B1tch Tears brings them back with a more single-minded message – Fuck. You.
It showcases creative expression within the constraints of pure aggression, banishing harmonies and the pretension of a deeper meaning.
