Without a doubt the finest British Death Metal band around at the moment, the well-dressed and cultured Akercocke are an awesome proposition and this their third album shows how seriously impressive they truly are. Their last release The Goat Of Mendes was an excellent record, but this is on a different level altogether. Frontman Jason Mendonca’s vocals range from a beautifully sung rich baritone to an awesome Death Metal growl, the drumming is insane with blastbeats and double bass runs all over the place and some of the guitar playing is truly spectacular; the riff which opens ‘Enraptured By Evil’ is enough to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. However, it is by no means all one-dimensional thrashing and blasting, this album has more than it’s fair share of light and shade. Moreso than its two predecessors, Choronzon sees Akercocke using electronic noises and synthesisers in a manner similar to bands like Voivod, and it adds a whole new level of interest to an already superb album. The best use of this technique is on the spectacular stand out track on the album ‘Son Of The Morning’ where the song begins by sounding like the Sisters Of Mercy and builds in intensity, heaviness and speed over its six minute-plus running time until at the end of the song it sounds like something from Suffocation’s legendary Effigy Of The Forgotten. Earache Records gave the band the budget to come up with an album to do justice to their undoubted songwriting abilities which they were never able to fully do before and they certainly came up trumps. The best British Metal release of 2003 without a shadow of a doubt, these dapper London gents showed that Cradle Of Filth aren’t the only band from these fair isles that can produce a noise which is extreme yet still has a relatively wide appeal.

I bloody love Akercocke.

Their brand of blended black and death metal shines out like a beacon in this modern era of extreme metal.

Choronzon has all the makings of an album that will go down in history as the day black and death metal were finally meshed so perfectly that you wouldn't know you were listening to either, as Akercocke have come up with a sound all of their own.

Of course, it is death metal and it is black metal. Without some kind of reference to adhere to this review wouldn't make much sense. But its the seamless blending of the styles, not to mention the accoustic touches and electronic moments that make this my favourite Aker moment. I've got all thier albums and this one for me is the best.

After a lengthy intro we get to taste the immeadiate darkness of "Praise the name of Satan." Its one of two ways Akercocke open their songs on this disk. The quick semi blasting bar, followed by a cooling of the jets, then the rush as it just tears off into all out black metal blasting. The other (ie: Enraptured....) is the shredding riff, followed by blasting drums and then the Mendonca extended death growl.

Jason Mendonca's vocals are exceptional. His range is truly amazing. From Clean singing, through to Black metal screaming and down into the completely uninteligble monstrous growling. He has it all.

This review has gone on far too long now, so I'll just say my personal faves on this album are 'Enraptured by Evil' for its shredding opening riff and all out brutality. 'Valley of the Crucified' for its opening clean vocals, superceded by some of the heaviest metal to come out of the uk...and a killer lead solo!

This is whats its all about! This album is the best thing I have heard in a long time.
Firstly, I would just like to say that it is so refreshing to be able to listen to an extreme album (its not purely death metal) and recognise the band straight away! Even the tracks are instantly recognisable. Thats something that I haven't been able to do for a long time with alot of the death metal thats been coming out.
So Choronzon. It opens with a dark and quite nasty spoken intro, moves into some very effective black metal style moments... and then blasts into an all out assault of death metal greatness. And thats just the first track!
The mix of styles and ideas on here are breath taking. The impressive range of vocal talents from Jason Mendonca is enough to carry the tracks alone, but the drums, guitars, keyboards and tempo changes are all arranged to give the most perfect sound I have heard on one album.
I am a big fan of the fast death metal sound, but the clean vocals and clean guitars of tracks like Leviathan and the opening to Son of the Morning, just ooze class and style.
The black metal riffs that occur from time to time (coupled with Mendonca's screaming vocals)really give a dark and ominous feel to the tracks. Its Black metal one minute, then with a gut wrenching tempo shift, its all out furious death metal slamming.
Some of the opening riffs are enough to make you go weak at the knees. My obvious choices for this are Enraptured by Evil (like everyone else by the looks of it) and Becoming the Adversary.
The drums are furious through out, except when the time calls for them to be pounding out slow death marches, which, to be fair, are usually followed by a Mendonca gutteral growl and double bass blast beats.
I would liken some of the sound to Nile.
