Serpents Spells – Mantras Within Ascending Fire EP
Wow, this hellish trio, Serpents Spells is from the country of Bangladesh, and on top of this, they’ve sin-fully delivered one heck of a black metal EP in the form of “Mantras Within Ascending Fire”.
The music on this four track EP, with the first being a weird and eerie intro, so the three cuts here being proper songs; they’re all powered with some of the most hideous guitars known to human ears. Just listen to the nun-defloration auditory wickedness of “Mantras Within Ascending Fire”, and you’ll feel like you’re a witness to a horror flick ridden with ungod-like demons from the netherworld.
Their musicianship is sharp, straight to the point, in your face, as the drumming explodes like landmines under your feet, taking away your freedom to move, and the only thing at this juncture sounds good is your planned demise.
Serpents Spells is not just black metal, they’re chaos out of bounds, hell bent on your bloody sacrifice. This trio is the root of all-evil, creating unmemorable spells of your ancient lost ones.
Being that they’re from Bangladesh makes this cryptic black metal unit even more interesting, as their lyrical take is not on the typical satanic themes, but the ever present darkness in Hindu mythology.
Don’t pass this one up, as it’s pure hell at its finest. Godz Of War Productions Sarjoo Devani
