Serpent Ov Old are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a very dark, raw and primitive form of satanic black metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 ep "Pure Poison Suicide".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars are very dark, raw and primitive sounding black metal guitar solos and leads that utilize some classic metal melodies at times.
Vocals are all grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams that have a very depressive tone to them at times, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Suicide themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Serpent Ov Old are a very great sounding dark, raw and primitive satanic/occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Suicide" and "Disdain Of Existence". RECOMMENDED BUY.
