Akercocke: ChoronzonCD, Earache 2003

Track list: Praise the Name of Satan - Prince of the North - Leviathan - Enraptured by Evil - Choronzon - Valley of the Crucified - Bathykolpian Avatar - Upon Coriaceous Wings - Scapegoat - Son of the Morning - Becoming the Adversary - Goddess Flesh

Akercocke was a bit of a surprise. I had never heard of the band before I read a review of Choronzon and bought the album. Turns out I've missed a lot! Akercocke plays vicious black or death metal, with a satanic theme. The vocal range is wide, from high-pitched screaming to low death metal grumble, with occasional clear vocals. There's energy and aggression. Simply great. ****

A fucking kick ass album but not as good as goat of mendes.

For me, "Choronzon" is the best album of the year 2003. Every song is amazing, and the instrumentals are just freaky. Their earlier albums "Rape of the Bastard Nazarene" and "The Goat of Mendes" are killers as well, but this is maybe their best release to date. Recommended!
