This unique online quest that guides fans around the Internet in search of a satisfying reward begins on this MySpace page, where you can also listen exclusively to the track taken from AKERCOCKE's blistering new release.
"Antichrist"'s concept was previously described by the group as "wonderfully rich. It represents a supreme opposite. The epithet of the great antagonist provided a wonderful metaphoric framework within which to work. We have strived to make elements of the recording as evil as possible. Creating atmospheres that are deliberately uncomfortable. Spurred on by a rage enhanced by the complete disgust with our recent history, we didn't have to dig very deeply to find the malice and rancour sufficient to evoke the spirit of violent antithesis. 'Antichrist' is the perfect banner for a collection of songs that are tales of opposition, sanguinary lust and the axiom of our raison d'etre."
