    Hmmmm....

    i was listening to the latest Akercocke album last night. I have to say that i really enjoyed the music, but the vocals are just beyond ridiculous for the most part. Now i like quite a lot of extreme vocals, Mikael, Dan Swano, Tatgren, David Vincent, etc....but this is beyond ridiculous.

    Its a real shame, cos his clear vox work well, if he toned down his guttural lows and rubbish screeching, i would definately enjoy it far more.

    The music is really well composed.

    OK im bored.....so indulge me, what is the general consensus about Mendonca?

    [yes i realise that this album has been out for quite some time]

    I take the band with a pinch of salt and I really enjoy the various vocals styles they use, Although im not too keen on the cheesy evil laughing. :erk:

    yeah the vocals occasionally let down the music, but the music is so good it is irrelevant

    I like Mendonca. He's improved, at least. And the gutteral low vocals are well good! If entirely incomprehensible. Just don't like the laughing. Other than that, i see no problem with the vox on 'Words That Go Unspoken...'

    Mmm... I think Jason's voice is great and I love his screeching. How long have you been listening to them? Perhaps you need more time? And yeah that cheesy evil laugh sounds like santa!

    Akercocke is pretty much awesome. My only complaint about their catalogue is Choronzon, but even that one has some badass tracks on it.

    choronzon is top notch. better than their previous 2 by far. and definitely the introductory album to their latest.
