Hail Black Metal!!!
El Oscuro
They both are the English Undergrounds best, they even change the Leather and Spikes look of Black Metal, by wearing Formal Attire.
Jeremy Angelslaughter
Recommendation: I really enjoyed this release and think I will be listening to it well into the future.

BR>Background: Akercocke originate from London, England and were formed in early 1997 by friends David Grey and Jason Mendoca. Both had previously been in the underground black metal band "Salem Orchid", which disbanded several years earlier, and had a strong following in the underground in England. Akercocke seems to be getting a lot of press recently, partly because of the heavy Satanic imagery and partly because of their country of origin.
Packaging: The packaging is very professionally done. The lyrics to all songs are included as well as a video for the song "Infernal Rites". The artwork includes depictions of satanic worship and female nudity. The nudity does not appear gratuitous and the imagery is not "hokey" ala some of the Norwegian bands out there. I have read many criticisms of the video, and I guess I can see why. The "lip sinking" is not done very well and the whole video seems kind of contrived.
Production: "Goat of Mendes" was recorded, engineered and produced by Martin Bonsoir at Goat of Mendes studios. It was mastered by Noel at Transfermation. The line up includes Jason Mendonca, Paul Scanlan, Peter Theobalds, David Gray and Martin Bonsoir. Dean Seddon of Hecate Enthroned lends some vocals on the track "The Serpent". Additional guest musicians participate with violins, keyboards, cello, trumpet, sasz and the clarinet. The main force behind the band appears to be David Gray who writes all of the lyrics and wrote the band bio on their website. The production is definitely adequate on this recording. It has a dark, death metal type of feel to it and the overall sound kind of reminds me a little bit of older Morbid Angel. You can make out all of the instruments and the vocals are mixed very well.

I must admit (rather embarrasingly) that I did not know who Akercocke were when I picked up this album. A friend of mine informed that they had been really hyped, something that I somehow managed to miss. So on to the music then.
At times, this reminds me of old Mayhem. Tortured, rasping screams on top of blasting drums and frantic guitars. At other times it reminds me of Immolation, Sadistik Exekution...but still with an air of freshness to it.
Being a black metal fan, as well as a CD-reviewer for a Swedish fanzine, I'm always overjoyed when I find something I like; something original. And this is original. Akercocke couldn't care less what you think of their music - or at least that's the feeling I get. If they want a female choir they use a female choir. If the want a cello, they use a cello, etc. If you want original, hateful, agressive black metal, then you want Akercocke.

Finally you are near to get one of the darkest releases of all the history...so don't think it more! buy it now!

This is the CD that deserves my first look when I see to my shelf. A great purchase that worths the money without any doubt.

The band Akercocke is known for wear suites, and for have one of the fastest drummers of the world, David Gray, who also writes their lyrics. This brutal industrial satanic black/death metal (what a name...), makes a sonic assault of brutality and Goat invoking anthems for all who wander in the abyss as me and you.

The album's artwork is all in black and white and is full of Black Mass' imagery, and the CD is compossed by 12 tracks (or 13 if you get the digipack version as myself, and then you have the last track, the stunning video for Infernal Rites...a video full of Black Mass imagery and woman nudity...and one of the bests I seen in my life). Here is a little description of each song.

Enjoy:

1-Of Menstrual Blood And Semen: the first track attacks with grunts and screechs that transports you to the world of Akercocke. Great guitar solos by Jason Mendonca and Paul Scanlan.

You also can hear women having orgasms...simply great.

2-A Skin For Dancing In: this one adds melodic vocals like they were(satanic)nuns invoking The Dark One. Great riffs again and amazing drum beatings. "Sister Cunegonde...Novitiate veiled in black...."

3-Betwixt Iniquitatis And Prostigiators: this is the first instrumental of the album. And in it you can hear rustic horns (this shows how original are Akercocke)and even sasz's melodies played by Jason, the frontman.

4-The Horns Of Baphomet: here you will find more "like satanic nun's" invoking words, and spectacular guitar riffs...

Draw a circle on the floor and sit in it. Conjure a mixture of the vocal stylings of Cradle Of Filth with the songwriting style of King Diamond and Venom and throw in some interesting instruments other than guitars and keyboards and you have a very heavy black metal album from the UK and not Norway for a change. Akercocke sound a lot like other black metal bands but their packaging is different as well as their wardrobe. A cool booklet with the lyrics is packed with some unique photos. Grab your favorite virgin and sit under a full moon and hail the Goat! (Be sure to wear your Sunday best.)
