Ekkaia was a neocrust band from A Coruña, Spain. Ekkaia started in 1999.
In their first releases they have a notorious real screamo / emo violence touch and some influences of melodic death metal. In their last releases they evolved into a darker crust sound, in the vein of Tragedy. They can be considered the cornerstone in the Spanish crust scene.
