A New Beginning – Lyric Video

AKELDAMA is a progressive metal band founded by Andrew Zink of Tampa, FL.
AKELDAMA began in 2010 as a studio project between Andrew Zink and a select group of musicians in the Greater Tampa Bay area. The project began to take shape with a few steady members and songwriters. Through the final months of 2010 and into 2011, Zink and his bandmates would compose a handful of tracks ending with the release of a self-titled, three song demo released on March 28, 2011. The three tracks would soon after solidify Akeldama as a household name within the circles of progressive metal/djent fans and the internet based metal scene as a whole.
