Akercocke release new video for One Chapter Ends For Another To Begin


Akercocke are premiering their new video for One Chapter Ends For Another To Begin exclusively with Metal Hammer.

The song is taken from the band’s latest album Renaissance On Extremis, which is out now via Peaceville.

Speaking to Metal Hammer about the video, vocalist Jason Mendonca says “The story echoes the lyrics of the song which is about coming back from the brink of suicide.

“It’s a song of hope, emphasising that there is always a way out from even the darkest of places and conditions.”

The video was directed by Khaled Lowe, using 4K cameras and drones.

“The skilful edit adds a surreal quality without digressing from the overarching concept,” says Jason.

Akercocke are part of the Extreme Metal Takeover in the latest issue of Metal Hammer.

Akercocke’s new album Renaissance In Extremis is out now and available to order from Amazon.
