I was anticipating this album for a long time although I was also worried that it might be a letdown. I had kept up with the bands teasers and youtube updates and some elements (including the title Antichrist) seemed sort of slipshod.

I'm happy to say that the album is ultimately not a disappointment, its dark, brutal, progressive, all the things I love about AK. That being said there are a few things I don't like:

The production on this album is crap. Its strange because it seems like their production got worse from their previous albums. When the first actual song, Summon the Antichrist, begins you hear a rapid drum fill that leads into a blast and distorted guitars. Its SUPPOSED to sound really explosive and crushing, except it doesn't because the drums sound like a cheap electric kit (they didn't even use a real bass drum according to the video logs) and the guitars sound like sludge with no punch whatsoever.

Furthermore, there are very noticeable messups on this album. The most noticeable is during Axiom with the clean acoustic guitars over a blast beat. Its a wonderful concept which is ruined by David Gray flamming all over the place with his kick drum. Couple this with Jason Mendonca's singing (this guy needs to train his voice, every album when he sings clean he is always straining and off pitch)and you have several periods of wincing while listening to the album.

Still all the problems dont change that this album is absolutely killer and a complete headtrip. The prog concepts and songwriting (minus the lyrics) are ingenious. Atmospheric doesn't even begin to describe the experience and it is quite a dark experience.

For any fans of Akercocke, this is a must check out album. Far from the raw sound they had on "Goat of Mendes" or "Rape of the Bastard Nazarene", " Antichrist" offers a more well rounded and brutal sound. To some it may be a little on the progressive side, but after giving songs like "Man without faith or trust" and you can see why they saved this album for being their last one. Can't wait to they tour again.

Album number five from England's Akercocke (pronounced: "ack-er-cock-ay") finds the band beginning to experiment with their sound, albeit only slightly. 2007's "Antichrist" does differ from previous recordings, including `06's "Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone," in that it is little bit more progressive and melodic. For the most part, though, Akercocke's sound remains the same as always. They primarily play a unique brand of blasphemous blackened death metal, although it comes tainted with a bit of grindcore, gore, thrash, crossover, math/noise, technical and melodic death, sludge/doom, and groove metal, power-violence, and crust punk. It is always a very original, engrossing, and brutal blend of styles/amalgam of most things heavy. The band also always is sure to include quite a few symphonic elements and Death/Necrophagist-inspired progressiveness. But it doesn't stop there -- they can even occasionally be heard adding a touch or two of industrial music and (borderline techno-esque) electronica for good measure. As you can see, Akercocke's sound is a huge an epic one that does not fit securely in one genre alone. (It always falls somewhere between Nile, Morbid Angel, Opeth, Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Brutal Truth, Terrorizer, Suffocation, Fear Factory, Sepultura, Celtic Frost, Unleashed, Meshuggah, Cannibal Corpse, Immortal, Cephalic Carnage, Dark Tranquility, The Berzerker, Marduk, Entombed, Deicide, Impaled Nazarene, Disrupt, Slayer, and Carcass.) And "Akercocke" is, of course, no exception.

Beginning on a creepy note, "Black Messiah" fades in with a needling, snaking guitar line accompanied by an ominous bit of grain-y-sounding feedback. This is then followed by a few beasty, Brujeria-esque spoken words, demonic backing vocals.
