Akercocke - Full-Length High-Quality Discography


Ok, I'm going back to Loadown, and will not stop to posting some music stuff!

Rape of the Bastard Nazarene (1999)

All in all, a great debut release and actually my favourite Akercocke album, despite its short play time. People argue over whether or not the band is death metal or black metal, and even though I subscribe to the former, it ultimately doesn’t matter; it’s the Faustian image of Satan that counts, and this disc conveys it with total and inspired clarity.

The Goat of Mendes (2001)
The band mixes great, hyper-fast guitar parts, original vocals, and thought provoking imagery with great results. The style of guitar used switches from extremely fast tremelo picking to heavily palm-muted riffs. The drumming, which of course grasps the concept of fast double bass, is rather creative, with a heavy emphasis on the snare to create a march-like rythm. The bass follows the guitar, as most bass does, but it has a few outlandish parts.

Choronzon (2003)
This album is fantastic, brutal, haunting, epic, majestic, dreamy, crushing and in some places scary. I would recommend this album to just about anyone who’s interested in hearing just how far music can go beyond the verse-chorus-verse-chorus formula or any tedious clich├ęs in general, as to me, Choronzon is a new way of experiencing music. Truly unique, devoid of structure, and utterly amazing. The song writing is outstanding. Well-done Akercocke. Well-done indeed!

Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone (2005)
The album is best listened to as a whole so that you can absorb all the different parts of the sound from the Choronzon style blasting of Seraphs and Silence and The Penance to the more melodic stylings of the title track and album closer Lex Talionis. It’s these songs encompass all the great things about Akercocke and make the album so good. Overall, this album is a progressive masterpiece and any fans of Akercocke or extreme metal at all that don’t have this should go out and get it today.

Antichrist (2007)
There is little else I can say about a band that has gone from a raw black/death metal band, to a death metal band whose songwriting talents put them on another plane of existence. There aren’t many bands that can equal the bridge of intensity and sheer artistic merit of Akercocke, and Antichrist while I may not like it as much as the prior classic is still a masterful album. Check this out if you are a fan of anything from Opeth to Cattle Decapitation
