5.0 out of 5 stars Light, Mellow and Funky, 8 Jan. 2004
By 
This review is from: Choronzon (Audio CD)
No its none of the above, but there is a lot more to the album than blistering death metal. There are moments of atmosphere to savour amongst the carnage, whether through melody, synthesisers, clean guitar with two dollops of chorus effect, or through samples. Too many black and death metal bands forget how to punctuate the aural assault of blast beats and guitar blur with something effective, but Akercocke don't.
There's obviously more to this band than the majority of the extreme metal scene, this could be one of those runaway albums that ends up winning a Brit award or featured in the Smash Hits poll winners party. If you believe that you're silly, but it does deserve acclaim as a standout album in its field.
