“Serpent Spell” is a three piece blackened death metal band hailing from the country of Bangladesh. “Mantras with Ascending Fire” is the band’s newly released E.P. via Godz Ov War, released in 30th May, 2016.
A cool breeze, rainfall, ritualistic chants and a woman moaning- that’s how the “Mantras within Ascending Fire” begins, before quickly escalating into the chaos of blackened death metal riffs, drum blasts and voice- “Piercing the Cervix of Nehemah”. The band’s depth is not only about composition of some hate spurred riffs and blasts but also writing deep and intricate lyrics. The listener can quickly infer that the moaning of the woman was indeed due to the birth of an evil creature through her womb.
A slow, dark and gloomy riff begins the next song of the E.P. – “Scourge Heretic Consecration”, before the E.P. finally comes to an end with the title track.
The cover is as evil as it can get: A crow/ raven is roaming above a demented and horrified looking figure (woman or old hag?) and fires and skulls are lit all across her black robe. The logo of the band is pretty neatly (pun intended) done.
“Godz Ov War Productions” deserves much of the credit in discovering/ reaching out to these underrated and cult bands and bringing them to the hardcore flag (of hate) bearers (read supporters) of extreme metal fans. Spread the cult and spread the chaos by supporting the E.P.
