  • Staff review by
    Ten long years after Antichrist, the mighty Akercocke are back. This time they have taken off their suits and the band's renaissance has occurred without sacrificing any goats. Female breasts are also absent and there is no sign of Lucifer worship. But fear not, for their admirable inability to deliver a less-than-extraordinary record is intact.

    The music is really beautiful, but the vocals destroy this album for me...

    THIS!!!! Came here to say the same thing. The instrumentation and texture has a Voivod vibe (only reason this is a 7 for me)...but holy fuck, the vocals...

    The thing that ruins this album is the vocals. It's a good album musically, but the vocals are just so poorly executed.

    Indeed, I don't mind them most of the time, but there are moments when they kill all the momentum. Shame.

    This didn't turn out as bad as I feared after the single, but the whole thing sounds like a pre-production album. Weak sound, some flat and disjointed songwriting and a lot of very cringey vocals. Another couple of months in the oven and this might have been a really tight extreme prog album.
