My HeadBangers since it’s gray, cold, gloomy what better time for a little really dark Black Metal from Belgium. Welcome Serpents Oath.
“Purification Through Fire”
And I even found a bio on them, from their website, which I am so happy to pass along. Let’s take a look:
“Pledged in blood, will and power, Commit totally from this very hour”
SERPENTS OATH started as a new creature comprised of 3 adepts of Belgium’s extreme metal scene. As soon as they met up and started creating together, they realized they were establishing a very different entity. Hence they decided to leave the past behind and give birth to this new Beast.
As this unholy trinity the band unleashed debut album ‘Nihil‘ through Soulseller Records in 2020 to much critical acclaim. With its relentless and unforgiving version of nihilistic black metal it took the world by storm.
Tes Re Oth had the following to say: “The vision behind the band is one of transformation. This shines through first and foremost in the lyrics and is carried through in the cover art and other visuals. The transformation is that of an individual striving to become transhuman with the ultimate goal of beating even Death. This is the ultimate rebellion as even Death is not accepted as a given.”
Since then, they have expanded their line-up to five sworn in members. Working and recording on their sophomore album as a full band brought a new dimension to the record that is recognizable from the first listen. “Ascension” saw the light of day in 2022 and this opus brought only crushing riffs, pounding drums and terrorizing screams.
In 2023 Serpents Oath joined forces with Odium Records to unleash their third album “Revelation” upon the hordes. A distinct step forward both in song writing and production, this latest opus is showing that the Flame burns brighter than ever.
On the live front they are a force to be reckoned with, as this is where the band truly come into their own. Here you can smell the incense, taste the blood in the air, feel the warmth of the flame on your skin and be crushed by their skull impaling riffs of hate!
“To live by the force of fang and claw, Forever respecting the one true law”
This band started in 2020, I can tell you from my experience in doing a blog for 5 years, they are not playing around. They have a website complete with a bio, pics and names, some of the best patches for that jacket of yours and not to mention some of the blackest music and pics I’ve seen. I have to give these guys a 12 out of 10 for all of their hard work. Now let’s meet the band:
Just run your mouse over the pics for their names. I cannot tell you how much this band has impressed me. Not only with the quality of their website: https://www.serpentsoath.com/#top I also think they put everything they have into their music, there are black metal bands and then there are Black Metal Bands. Those of you who love black metal know exactly what I mean when I say that. For a band that has only been around for 3 years, my head bows to you all. You are deff on the right road to being a top Black Metal Band, an I am sincere when I say that. I will keep my eye on this band and bring any news or updates as I get them.
That’s it for this week my HeadBangers, join me Wednesday for Hump Day and next Saturday for the weekly band. In the meantime, don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
