Serpent Seed are a band from Poland that plays black metal with a touch of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Debris Of Faith" which was released by The End Of Time Records.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile vocals that are in between death and black metal are added into the music along with a few high pitched screams being used at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are used.
When solos and leads are utilized they are in a very dark and melodic musical direction and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music also brings in more of an early to mid 2000's style of black metal at times and some of the riffs also bring in elements of thrash and some of the fast riffs also bring in more of a raw style of black metal while some of the heavier riffs bring in death metal influences and one track also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Serpent Seed plays a style of black metal that is very dark and heavy and also mixes in elements of death metal to make their music stand out a bit more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, occult and blasphemous themes.
In my opinion Serpent Seed are a very great sounding mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Demon's Blade" "I Spit On Your Cross" and "Unholy Trinity". 8 out of 10.
