The Togolese metal in all its splendor. Arka'n Asrafokor brilliantly combines the Vodun universe and metal music. Singing in Ewe, French and English, the quintet relies on percussion and howled or rapped lyrics to address social issues and spirituality. Aside from the drums and the Gakokoe bells, the resulting blend harks back to the raw power of metal: distorted guitars, feverish solos and border-transcending rage. Paléo, get ready!
