On its 2007 Alternative Tentacles album, NAVIGATING THE BRONZE, Seattle, Washington-based hardcore act Akimbo unleashes another set of seriously aggro, loud-heavy punk tunes. With his urgent yelp, frontman Jon Weisnewski channels David Yow and leads the group onward as it churns out twisting guitar lines and pounding rhythms, most notably on the raucous, metal-tinged "Wizard Van Wizard."
