Akercocke - Rape Of the Bastard Nazarene LP (Black vinyl)

€14.90

Akercocke: the ultimate fusion of black and death metal with progressive influences. Here we have their debut full length album Rape of the Bastard Nazarene and right away with the name we can already tell how these guys feel about religion (Christianity mostly for that matter). 

Although this is only their debut the band already displays their amazing musicianship in a well planned out manner. Songs like Hell and NaDJa are both thrash songs that show their backbones in the death and black metal genres. While my personal favorite song on the album is the fusion track Marguerite and Gretchen which effectively fuses the black and death metal sounds with an almost alternative metal tendency thrown in and finishing off with a string section with females singing over it. Jason Mendonca's clean vocals on this track are extremely exceptional and defnitely pave the way for the band's future.
