Akercocke drummer David Gray has joined forces with other band members Peter Benjamin and Sam Loynes (also of Diminished Fifth) in a new black metal project called Voices.

The band commented: "We recently set foot in studio to record drums for the first full-length Voices release and there is going to be no let-up and we hope to complete the album before the end of the year. Also we shot a music video for a version of one of the tracks featuring on the album and is due for its imminent release."

"With over an album's worth of material, Voices shall soon be looking to spread the evil in the live arena. We are excited about the responses from all those thirsty Akercocke fans as Voices, albeit an entirely different and fresh musical outfit, share Akercocke's experimental approach and mash-up of extreme metal styles. All songs are born out of extensive improvisation and therefore are more about vibe rather than meticulous structuring. It's here that we feel our sound is becoming unique, reflecting the moods and atmospheres of the rehearsal space on that specific day."

I wonder if this means no more Akercocke. Boo hoo...

Holy shitballs, intriguing o.0

And yeah, I hope this doesn't signal the end of the 'cocke. That would be a sad day indeed.

Glad you omitted the pointless "Music video preview" that's on Blabbermouth.

Hopefully they don't go all shoegaze atmospheric on us. There's enough of that already; if anything, they should bring their progressive side of their sound to black metal. That would be a welcome addition.

PS don't disband Akercocke

I'd rather not think about much or I'll get sad!

The band's official forum (which hasn't received many responses from the band members recently) mentions them taking some time off. Half of the guys still want to write new material, the other half are getting their shit together outside of the recording studio (wives, kids, jobs, etc.).

I doubt we'll see a new Akercocke release for at least another year or two - if they don't decide to call it quits.

Here's the new video that the band was talking about...

Not the best song I've heard... Kind of sounds like an early Akercocke reject. It's easy to overlook the big-titted lingerie model marketing gimmick too.
