SERPENTS LAIR - Circumambulating The Stillborn LP
Formed in Denmark, Serpents Lair are one of the most talented and devastating black metal acts to come out of Scandinavia in a good while, crafting a very distinctive brand of dissonant, kaleidoscopic black metal, both complex and abrasive in its execution. After the 2014 demo took the underground by storm last year, the band returns with a full-fledged offering, made up of seven tracks sharing the aesthetic of Deathspell Omega, Svartidaudi and Carpe Noctem, yet unique in their own way.
Released in January 2016 via Hellthrasher Productions (CD) and Fallen Empire / Duplicate Records (LP).
Ltd. to 500 copies on 180g black vinyl in reverse print cover with insert, incl. download
