Holy Serpent brings the doom riffs all the way from Melbourne, Australia, though you can probably hear them from just about anywhere in the world if you listened hard enough. They're loud as hell, they're crushing, and good lord do they kick ass. Holy Serpent will release their new album Endless on October 18 and we're streaming the whole thing in full right now.
Here's what vocalist and guitarist Scott Penberthy had to say about the record.
"Lyrically, it's heavily influenced by the ocean. Lots of ocean metaphors and imagery was used. Also the title of the album Endless, is an homage to the ocean: Its mystery, power and its ability to give and take life." The album loosely follows the lyrical theme of two lovers, oceans apart, waiting for each other on the shores of eternity. Their love is so strong, they eventually walk into the water, ending their lives to be together in the afterlife."
