Akercocke - Guitarist Leaves The Band


Guitarist Matt Wilcock (ex-The Berzerker) - who has been putting the "cock" in "Akercocke" for six years - has announced his departure from the band. Here's his farewell speech:

"After 5 years with Ak, and a lot of good times, it's now time for me to move on. Musically, I'm differing a bit with the natural path that Akercocke's taking, so it's best for me to part ways now. Theres no shit between anyone, and I'm thoroughly looking forward to going out with a bang, (or blast) on these last 4 shows [with Dark Funeral]. Full respect to the guys, especially Jason and Dave. I'll be continuing to work with Dave on The Antichrist Imperium which will be up and running very soon. Also much respect to everyone I've met on the road and at shows etc."


Akercocke's dates on the Declaration Of Hate Tour (with Dark Funeral, Zonaria, Carach Angren and Nefarium)

13.03.2010 - GBR, Prestatyn - Hammerfest II

Aww man! Thats such a shame. Hope they'll start working on a new album soon enough. It seems like the band has been slowly circling the drain for some time now

At least he's being professional about it, if you aren't happy with what you are working on it will only lead to bad things. Best of luck to these guys.

Well that's a shame, he seemed to fit quite well with the band and the sound they were reaching for.
