Pledged in blood, will and power
Commit totally from this very hour

SERPENTS OATH is a creature comprised of adepts of Belgium’s extreme metal scene. As soon as they met up and started creating together, they realized they were establishing a very different entity. Hence they decided to leave the past behind and give birth to this new Beast.

Their rebellious debut album ‘Nihil’ took the world by storm with its relentless and unforgiving version of nihilistic black metal. Expect no remorse from this opus, only crushing riffs, pounding drums and terrorizing screams pushing the limits of a music genre already marked by chaos and death.

Tes Re Oth has the following to say: “The vision behind the band is one of transformation. This shines through first and foremost in the lyrics and is carried through in the cover art and other visuals. The transformation is that of an individual striving to become transhuman with the ultimate goal of beating even Death. This is the ultimate rebellion as even Death is not accepted as a given.”

Now they have announced their sophomore album ‘Ascension’, which will be released on June 24th through Soulseller Records (GORGOROTH, DJEVELKULT,..).
The Black Arts for the Artwork were performed by the hands of Néstor Avalos, known for his work for bands like DARK FUNERAL. The artwork shows the next chapter of the rebellion of Lucifer which was depicted on the first album. Now he has stormed the Throne of God only to find it empty and thus ascends to become his own God. The title ‘Ascension’ hence refers to this journey of becoming your own God. It also refers to the journey of the band as they continue to ascend to the next step of climbing the Black Metal Throne.
The album was conjured at the renowned Stage One Studio with Andy Classen (BELPHEGOR, et al) as the master of ceremony.
On the recording, the band continued: “When we released our debut, we were a trinity. Since then, we have expanded our line-up to five sworn in members. Working on and recording this album as a band has brought a new dimension to this record.” Expect no remorse from this opus, only crushing riffs, pounding drums and terrorizing screams.

Witness the unleashing of the beast on June 24th through Soulseller Records and prepare to be crushed by their skull impaling riffs of hate!

To live by the force of fang and claw
Forever respecting the one true law
