AKERCOCKE – CHORONZON (EARACHE RECORDS)



England’s Black Metallers Akercocke have done themselves a huge favor by signing with Earache (that now also boasts Deicide), for they have the means to launch them onto an unsuspecting world who thinks UK Black Metal begins and ends with Cradle of Filth. This, their third album, on sheer musical talent alone will undoubtedly propel them into the major league, spoken in the same foul breath as such figures as Dimmu Borgir and the sadly missed Emperor.
Opener ‘Praise the name of Satan’ is a 7-minute plus affair of growls, shrieks and heavy, heavy riffs, guaranteed to leave you beaming with satanic joy. And after an eerie instrumental third track, ‘Leviathan’ (and also the first video from the album) starts doom-laden with agonized vocals before building up threatened momentum - check out the riff and lead in the mid-section, amazing.
Masterfully produced with legendary producer Neil Kernon, so we’re not talking buzz-saw guitars or paper-thin drums here, folks; Choronzon is a tour-de-force in extreme Black Metal that deserves all the devilish acclaim bestowed upon it – praise the name of Akercocke.

Combining an amalgam of musical styles, astounding musicianship, imaginative passages and great production, Akercocke are easily at the forefront of modern Black Metal.
