Akercocke's first album, Rape of the Bastard Nazarene, was self-released by the band in 1999. Akercocke later signed to Peaceville Records, releasing The Goat of Mendes in 2001, which reached number 4 in Terrorizer's album of the year chart. In 2003 the album Choronzon was released, through Earache Records. This album was voted number 1 metal release of the year by Terrorizer. Paul Scanlan left the band after this album, and was replaced by Matt Wilcock.
Akercocke released their fifth and final album, Antichrist, in May 2007. Whilst touring to promote the album, due to the perceived anti-Christian nature of the music, the band generated controversy in Northern Ireland when they scheduled a tour date in Belfast on 18 May 2007, and appeared on BBC1's debate show Nolan Live on 16 May 2007 to defend their right to play the gig. Following the break up of Akercocke, David Gray and Peter Benjamin went on to form Voices. Akercocke had a sixth full length studio album and DVD based on their 10 year anniversary as a band planned, though these were never released.
