Akercocke - New Album In May


Earache Records have issued the following update on UK based progressive blackened death metallers Akercocke:

Akercocke are gearing up for the recording of their fifth album. The suited ones plan to commence recording at their very own Goat of Mendes Studios in December.

Frontman Jason Mendonca describes the new material as "...a logical development from "Words That Go Unspoken". We are continuing to enhance and highlight the dynamics in our music. The contrast between light and shade is stronger in places although in essence, our new work promises to be our most violent. Expect hyperblast speeds that will shame the pretenders. Bludgeoning primitive death grooves, rancorous hate filled black metal and teutonic thrash assaults all seared with swathes of mind shredding electronica and dark, ancient textures."

Akercocke's last album, Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone, was released on Earache in 2005. The forthcoming album to be released in May, 2007 will be the band's third with Earache Records.

I'm still quite surprised at how big this band has become.

Anyhow, new album stuff sounds good but I hope they keep their progressive metal sound.
