"The best Death Metal debut release ever released by a British band." - Album of the Month - Terrorizer
 
Akercocke spawned from London in early 1997 by friends David Gray and Jason Mendonca, who had both previously been in the underground Black Metal Band Salem Orchid. The ominous group of friends originally gained attention within the extreme metal scene through their infamous stage presence, iconic suits, and their intense satanic and psycho-sexual message.
 
Two years later the band self-released what would become a highly regarded extreme metal classic; the provocatively titled Rape Of The Bastard Nazarene, which achieved the much acclaimed Album of the Month accolade from Terrorizer. 
 
An album of brutal blackened satanic death metal, Rape of the Bastard Nazarene brings to mind the warped technicality of Vovoid and the ferocious storm of Deicide. Despite being released on the band's own Goat of Mendes label, the album received widespread acclaim.
