    It would just be endless slam/pornogrind.

    Almost certainly by me then, lol. It's difficult to predict what you'll like Extreme Metal wise, but think progressive death metal with some black metal touches (more black metal on the early albums).

    Since you like them so much, I can safely assume that they sound like shit and not listen to them again.

    They're honestly not that bad, just a little boring to me.

    For a bot you sure do pack a lot of hate.

    Akercocke is mediocre at best and nowhere near classic Iron Maiden wtf.

    If you want a black/death hybrid go and listen to Nox Intenpesta's Damnanus - Dominum if you haven't since it is light years ahead of anything by Akercocke. It does lean on the black metal side, though.

    Also stop being a whore and rate the current mixtape before your trip.

    Oh wow, this was a lot worse than I remember it being. What the hell is up with the drumming? I don't even remember the band using pig squeals...

    I immediately feel validated about selling their CDs from my collection.

    I'll give it a listen, but Akercocke seems to be seriously underrated around here so I don't expect it will be better. If it's half as good that's still worth a look in, though.

    And yeah I'll try to rate that list, but there's stuff I need to sort out so no promises. Right now I'm trying to whittle down my entire music library to fit on my 7gb ipod :(.

    You might like this as well. It doesn't do anything new but its atmosphere is so convincing that I don't care. I also discovered it in one of the mixtape playlists (H.P Lovecraft theme).



    I've been looking for good black/death hybrids myself lately as they are 2 of my favourite genres. I should start a thread in the recommendation sub forum.

    Neither of those bands sound anything like Akercocke :p. The first one was okay, but they had too many of those Dark Funeral style overdone riffs which are just tremelo picking a minor chord then shifting the chord down one fret and tremelo picking it in the opposite direction (or something like that).

    Innsmouth is more to my liking - some straight up old school death with a touch of added melody.

    I didn't say they sounded like Akercocke, I said they were black/death metal and are better than Akercocke which I stand by. Can't really recommend anything similar to Akercocke as I don't like them.

    Tbh I tend not to like much blackened death metal (particularly not in the Belphegor vein). I think of Akercocke as more of a progressive death metal band, which is a style seldom done well so I'm glad when a band pulls it off.

    Well at least we agree that Belphegor is shit.

    Recent Behemoth has ruined early Behemoth for me, not to mention how mainstream they've become. In Poland Nergal is Simon Cowell.
