U.K. death metallers AKERCOCKE have once again entered their very own Goat of Mendes studios in West London to record their fourth album. Tentatively titled "Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone", the CD promises to be the band's most ambitious project to date.
"The new material is a progression again from 'Choronzon'," explains frontman Jason Mendonca. "The core AKERCOCKE elements are there — harrowing dissonances, bludgeoning brutality and cacodaemonic sonic assaults all feature but once again we have expanded the AKERCOCKE sound to include more rich and diverse textures, not necessarily bound by the confines of death and black metal.
"Recording is going very well. David recorded 11 songs worth of drums in about two hours. We spent a weekend getting the drums to sound right and then David delivered some stellar performances, putting most of the material down in one take. New boy Matt (ex-BERSERKER shred master Matthew Wilcock) and I have set about recording the guitar parts and we're about halfway through that process. I am really excited by the way the tracks are sounding so far. 'Words...' will undoubtedly be the best sounding AKERCOCKE release yet." Neil Kernon is once again in the frame for mixing duties and the band plan to finalize "Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone" with Neil in the USA during the first week of August.
