5.0 out of 5 stars Hail the Masters..... 13 July 2007
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
I have said it once, and I will say it again.
"I bloody love Akercocke".

In a 'scene' where, just like thrash before it, there are 1000 bands an hour clogging the all welcoming arteries of every label going, and over shadowing the good music out there, Akercocke unleash yet another monumental album, and prove that, "if you've got it... you've bloody got it !!!"
Antichrist beams like a ray of (black) sunshine amongst the effluence that pours out of the gutter calling itself extreme metal.
Listening to Antichrist for the first time caused me to feel slightly drunk. Its great when a long awaited album is released and it exceeds all the expectations you had for it. (Deicide's 'Stench of Redemption' being the last album I bought to do this prior to 'Antichrist')
The band have reverted just a touch to more extreme death and black metal to meat out the album, unlike on 'Words...', where by there was far more experimental synth, classical and clean vocal moments.
Antichrist does have all of these, but not in such great abundance.
Opener 'Black Messiah' is a satanic amalgam of industrial carnage and what sound like backwards messages. Not much of a better way to grab your attention.
Title track 'Antichrist' just hammers out with satanic brutality the momment it starts. This is Akercocke doing what they do best. Gray's pinpoint blast beats, Mendonca's fabulously biled growling. Memorable riffs... basically, the works!!! There is a nice clean vocal part in this song, that like all the other clean momments, seems to have been thought about long and hard as to where it should be done, and maximises the effect of the leads, blasts and growls to perfection.
'Axiom' is worth a mention just because: a) it has a video. And: b) Its a classic already !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Progressive death 26 May 2007
By Martin
Format:Audio CD
Unlike most pre-release reviews, I've actually listened to this album repeatedly and in full from a secret website! It is truely awesome, featuring plenty of hammering death metal as you would expect from the Ak, but with a lot more conventional singing and 'slow' parts. Overall this makes for a varied and interesting experience. These are well written songs with good tunes - something other death metallers try to use brutality to make up for a lack of... Futher evolution of the sound of the most exciting metal band in the UK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ever! 15 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my best albums of all time, something about it just hits me with every listen. An incredably orignal band and if you are into metal of any sort or evan if your not definatly try this album out.

Shamefull Self Promotion Section.

It's hard to put into words how great this album is really - I bought it on Monday and haven't stopped listening to it!! Akercocke are an inspirational British band and they don't disappoint with their satanic and addictive brutal sound. Anyone that's thinking about buying this - don't think twice! It's amazing authoritative metal with bellowing vocals, compelling guitars and blasting beats. I think this is Akercocke's best record yet an all-engulfing metal experience!!

2.0 out of 5 stars ANTI-Climax 6 Aug 2011
By Puss
Format:Audio CD
This evidences a low point creatively in Akercocke's musical output. It lacks centrifuge or epicentre, like some said about Supergrass' 'Life on Other Planets' CD. However, it is worth buying for the good tracks that are on it, such as 'The Dark Inside', 'The Promise', 'Axiom' and 'Epode', in my order of preference, but that is about all you can get in the way of songs with coherent lyrics. The rest are just sonic 'experiments' that might be find on a Hammer Horror movie OST or even on panpipes collections. It is very distorted as an album whose theme is the coming of antichrist (the quotation insleeve indicates its intended listening purpose), and full of feedbacklike quality noise. Unless you are a fan, or you like the tracks I've mentioned, you'd be better going for something else by them instead.
