Akercocke studio video update
AKERCOCKE’s as-yet-untitled album is being recorded at the group’s Goat of Mendes Studios in West London. Frontman Jason Mendonca describes the new material as “a logical development from [2005's] ‘Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone’. 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.” A May 14 release via Earache Records is expected.
