There is a freshness and urgency to Serpent that makes this
album sound like a classic already. Proto-metal riffs jostle with
Stoner Blues headbanging tunes which have been dipped in the
potent brew that is early Sabbath.
There is no dicking around here – with a plug in, turn up and play
attitude, the sound is heavy, dense but with an uplifting feeling of
fist-pumping joy. The unstoppable groove monster these Swedes are
playing just make me realise that sometimes all I want to do is hear
some heavy rock played with power and epic tunes. With the growing
success of Graveyard and Kadavar slowly spreading, it would be an
injustice if this album does not get the recognition it deserves.
