2001 saw Akercocke undertake a new medium in which to communicate the word of Satan….video. Embarking on territory usually reserved for pop music bands they commenced making videos for two songs from the "Goat of Mendes" album. The band filmed "Infernal Rites" to be included on the album as a video enhanced track.

For the song "Horns of Baphomet" it was suggested that they film a live performance at the Colchester Art centre, a converted church, complete with enormous stained-glass windows intact. This video was used by Terrorizer magazine for their free CD edition.

Abercocke are already feeling the benefit of large record company support. The movers and shakers at Snapper music have created a plethora of interest with tremendous support from the metal press. Lets hope that this is just the start of a beautiful relationship.
