Britains finest return in malicious form with their ultimate mission statement: Antichrist.
Already causing a stir in Northern Ireland and the US with priests up in arms and printing presses downing tools Antichrist has already made it mark where many lesser 'Satanic" bands falter and that is before it has even been heard! And with the pairing of sonic opposites - primeval, guttural Death metal typified by the band's early releases - and progressive rock inspired explorations from the last album - are fused into musical alchemy, creating some of Akercocke's most daring moments, but also there most stark and brutal.
Not only does the stylish Superjewel case edition comes in a form of suave and sophisticated packaging appropriate for these fine English gentleman, but it is the only place you will hear Akercocke's covers of 2 Death Metal classics from Morbid Angel and Death.
