Acheron

Acheron have been an cult band for several years, releasing albums on a several underground labels and having featured a variety of well-known death metal musicians over time as their lineup has frequently changed surrounding founder Vincent Crowley. Based on the one album reviewed here (1998's Those Who Have Risen), the basics of Acheron might be described as mid-paced Satanic death metal, with heavy, down-tuned, Celtic Frost-style guitar riffs and atmospheric keyboards that give the tunes a haunted feel. This is not a complicated band, there's little in the way of technical wizardry, but the songs are catchy in a dark kind of way. Since around 2010 they'd been an off-again, on-again band, but as of spring 2018 it appears they are truly done for good.
