Serpent Throne
Release date: December 15th, 2020
Label: Australis Records

Well its been awhile since Serpent Throne put out something and now here we have their first full length and these guys have elements of black and death and even more if you listen to it.

Starts out with an interesting Intro before we go into Beyond the Chains of Decadence and out of the gate these guys come at you like a storm, the track is heavy and to the point, the vocals are really good and come across well there are some breaks and a real slow downed part that’s heavy as fuck at the end, impressive opener.

Blessed by Fire has a more slower pace but deep in presence to start but it gets faster and with some really catchy hooks that kept me tuned in, and the drumming on here is really killer some heavy pounding like it should be, and we go onto Anointed in Evil which has an even more deep slower feel but it builds up as it gets faster paced and some really ripping riffage is heard here as the track goes off at the end with ripping lead to blow your head off.

And Where Evil Prevails has this more black feel to it as far as the riffage presented as the start but this has a break where it takes on a whole new life as it takes you on another road you could say and a dark one as it fades away and it kind of seems like the journey doesn’t end as we go into A Vision of Abominations and Death which is an instrumental that just fits the mood and is really good has a lot of feeling to it.

A Wolf Between Lambs, well here we have my favorite track on here the title is in English but sung in Spanish, this just a crusher of a track with this riff that really sticks to you and the aggression on here is full tilt!
and Ancient Sorcery is another strong number with the drums pounding in the beginning and with a great vibe as this one grabs you and the vocalic chorus that ads dimension to track this is pretty blistering stuff.

It continues on Black Flames of Darkness as this has a superb drive with a break and later this hypnotic guitar comes in that really took this to another level and as it got more slower and darker as it closed out, a fantastic composition, to the closer Serpent Throne which is more on a slower pace and has feeling to it, the guitar parts are really good this has emotion written all over it, so a good closer as the Outro ends this.

I was impressed by this release lots of good material on here that should be checked out.
