Serpent Ov Old/Serpent Of Synth/2012 CD Review


   This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Serpent  Ov  Old  with  the  musical  style  being  occult,  dark ambient as  well  as  the  songs  being  chamber  versions  of  the  original  songs  on  the  "Withering Hope"  album  with  this  release  being  self  released  in  2012 and  called  "Serpent  Ov  Synth".

  Synths  which  are    the  only  musical  instrument  present  on  this  recording  bring  a  very  black  metal  influenced  form  of  occult,  dark/ambient  to  the  music  along  with  some  neo-  classical  elements  to  create  a  sound  of t heir  own.

  Vocals  and  song  writing  are  all  absent  from  this  recording  with  the  music  being  all  instrumental,  while  the  song  themes  cover  Satanism,  Occultism  and  Suicide,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  with  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Serpent  Ov  Old  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black  metal  influenced  occult/dark  ambient,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Banished"  "Drowning  In  Sorrow"  and  "Poison  Pure  Suicide".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
