AKERCOCKE Split With Guitarist

The U.K. Satanic black/death metal band AKERCOCKE have parted ways with guitarist Paul Scanlan. "The other members of the band feel that an injection of new blood would be the best way to achieve maximum creativity shaping their second album for Earache Records," reads a posting on the group's web site. "Scanlan's contribution to the birth of the AKERCOCKE sound is inestimable and the band wish him all the best in his next project."

AKERCOCKE's most recent album, "Choronzon", was released in October 2003 via Earache. The CD was mixed at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, Texas with producer Neil Kernon (NEVERMORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE) and features artwork by legendary U.K. rock photographer Fin Costello.
