    The Akercocke drummer has drummed a couple of shows for the berzerker drummer. You know he can pull off Akercocke material if he can pull of the lightning fast berzerker drumming.

    I saw them live with Opeth a while back in London. The vocals were flawless, the guitars were top notch and I've rated David Gray as my favourite drummer ever since I saw them. The touring keyboardist was a complete wanker though.
    I think Akercocke's drumming is even more demanding than the berzerker's.

    I was at that show and I wouldn't say the vocals were flawless, and I am one of the few who actually likes Mendoncas voice. However, 100% agreed on the keyboardist. It looked like an excited emo kid (lets please not have a debate on what constitutes emo) having an epileptic fit on stage with a black/death metal band. Cock.
