Serpent – Nekromant

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.
