Sakara / Press

“I first wrote about Sakara a few weeks ago, and now today I am naming them the number 10 New England band of 2013. While the band's debut album isn't due out until early 2014 Sakara has been taring up the New England music scene with their electric live performance.”

“Add a little grunge angst to your basic Stoner Metal template and stir in a little shoe-gazery sweetness and Progressive Metal atmospherics before garnishing with a handful of Alt-Rock crunch and that’s just the taste we get from the first song ‘Jonah’.”

“Sakara's songs all surround the listener with a feeling of urgency, seriousness and release. Sakara seems to have perfected their own world they have created. Sakara with 'Forgetting What Was' have found that perfect edge of patterned riffs and emotional chords, slamming hard and balancing the tide without going to far into the grasp of extreme repitition of a groove.”

“From Springfield, MA comes the band Sakara with their debut album through Pavement Entertainment entitled "Forgetting What Was." The band has been gaining local attention and has opened for many well-known band's national tours along the east coast. The ten song release begins with the heavy hitting alternative rock of "Jonah," the progressive hard rock feel of "Headlines" and the punk-like attitude of "Standing My Ground." They mix in some acoustics to hit the mainstream radio with "The Hunger," and lock in to the modern metal groove of "From Ashes." The album closes with the addicting "Simulation Theory" which keeps you wanting more from Sakara. The new album "Forgetting What Was" is produced by Johnny April (Staind) and will be released on May 27th. To find out more, please visit www.facebook.com/SakaraMusic”

“What I really enjoyed about the album is that it doesn’t have much by way of hang ups. There isn’t a whole lot of idolizing going on, just an album that seems to go at its own pace and music that fit’s the mold of each song. B+”

“Sakara’s new album, Forgetting What Was, draws influence from multiple genres while still maintaining a solid rock sound. Because of their diverse genre incorporations the band has the potential to reach different fan groups while still holding true to their style”
