This is the vinyl version for SL's awesome 2014 debut demo! Serpents Lair is probably the most talented and devastating Black Metal to come out of Scandinavia in a good while!!!
For their debut album will be out within 2015, we felt the need to arrange a very limited vinyl version of their one and only demo tape.
Serpents Lair are leading the new breed of Scandi Black, and they've crafted two long intrincate, technical, complex yet feral, raw, merciless pieces of their own Black Metal brand. Few new bands can claim to possses their own distinctive sound since the very first recording, Serpents Lair are one of the chosen.
This is destined to become a classic in the genre in the years to come.
"Unremitting malevolence has its time and place, but Serpents Lair have crafted two songs that are memorable as well as misanthropic, atmospheric as well as ravaging.I’m very curious about where the members of Serpents Lair come from, because this demo sounds like a mature work by experienced musicians, not the halting first effort of newcomers."
(NO CLEAN SINGING)
"Serpents Lair are a "mystery band" that make their first appearance straight from nowhere with their "MMXIV" demo.
When I started hearing the tracks, I was afraid this was another copy-cat... but the more I sank into them, the more I felt this is really Serpents Lair sound and identity. And to be honest, I really like their sound, the whole construction of the tracks, the whole unexpected turns within the tracks, from a more slow and agonizing moments to a crescendo of brutality that leads into pure misanthropy."
