Akercocke


Pretty much the epitome of sickness. If anyone needs to sign to Willowtip, it's these guys. Earache seems to be fuckin' them in the ass or something. Haven't released a bad album and probably won't, though I do wonder what the new stuff would sound like if they had kept Schanlan. fuck previous threads, there should be DS type appreciation for this band on this forum.

Agree.

Just can't seem to do anything wrong. I'm really curious where they'll take things from the direction they went with Antichrist. That album was fucking brilliant but so is everything they've done.

they sure are very unique. I´ve known akercocke since this record came out. they don´t seem to be very popular among more mainstream metal fans. no surprise though haha.

This is the best band in the world imo. Each album is a huge masterpiece and i simply cannot understand how they do it. I never feel like talking about it here though. It's beyond words.

Yeah, they could go on the road with Anata and call it the "Assfucked by Earache Tour".

Yes, it's just a shame that his drum sound is never quite right (imo).

Yeah, don't like it much. Same with the other bonus cover track on Antichrist, "Leprosy" by Death. Jason't vocals make the text so unintelligible it's amusing.

the ep one with the instrumental eyes of the dawn demo? its pretty awesome
akercocke are amazing, words that go unspoken is definitely my favourite

edit: just had a listen to that antichrist imperium youtube sample, the riff at 1:50... im sure thats an akercocke riff

"Rape Of The Bastard Nazarene" is fucking evil primitive thrashing death/black with brutal vocals and totally original sound. Very satanic atmosphere, unexpected parts and punky rhtyms. Pure genius.

i always thought it was used in a negative connotation, so it had me confused too. i thought he wanted to know the drummer's name or something lol











so yeah, i've had Words Go Unspoken... for YEARS and i love it. for some reason, i've never bothered to check out the rest of their albums. which album do you guys think should be next in my ackerquest?

I was talking about Enraptured being clean guitar and not acoustic, I'll definitely go brush up on my reading comprehension, though.

You're talking about Enraptured By Evil, one of the darkest extreme DM songs ever. Entrancing.

Incredible band. Agreed with those saying that they've never released a bad album, or even a remotely mediocre one. Any word on what they've done post-Antichrist?
