A compelling and very multi-layered record concerning ‘root essence’, occult layers of self, the Tarot and much more, Lux is a major moment for Denver’s In The Company Of Serpents. Pummeling sludge, dreamy wasteland hallucination and solar ego fat melt are all part of the experience.

Produced, mixed and mastered by Dave Otero, the album is the most dynamic release yet from a band who, like Ufomammut or Bask, are content to stack up solid releases upon each other and let the work speak for itself rather than get cocky and big heads. Still, the band have to be feeling pretty stoked on some of this brilliant material. “The Fool’s Journey” is ten minutes of patient stage setting that then leads to one payoff moment after another. The essential statement examined on here is that all is sound, mind, light.

“The Chasm At The Mouth Of All” is probably my favorite, creeping along like Giant Squid was more desert rock minded with a craggy old wise man on verse vocals. I was definitely feeling the bleak country moments of that one.Ethan Lee McCarthy & Ben Hutcherson provide guest vocals on “Scales of Maat” and Paul Primus adds tasty viola to some interludes, giving this whole release the feeling of some dark film revealing moments of hope during a weary series of trials.

If you have slept on this band before this is a great place to start and you’ll be rewarded with plenty of huge riffs from the formidable trio as well as bellowing screams to counterbalance the more “open minded” moments. It’s a profound and killer record anyone from Neil Young to Mastodon fans could curl up next to a campfire with (while keeping a watchful eye out for deadly critters).

Denver doomers In The Company of Serpents welcome their newest member bassist bassist/multi-instrumentalist Ben Pitts (Vimana, Black Sleep Of Kali, To Be Eaten, False Cathedrals).

Vocalist/guitarist Grant Netzorg says of the addition, “We are happy to announce the addition of Ben Pitts to the lineup. [Drummer] Joe [Weller Myer] and I have discussed adding a multi-instrumentalist for quite a while, as we’re eager to broaden our songwriting options beyond the limitations of a two-piece. We’re in the midst of writing our next album currently, so the timing is perfect to welcome Ben to the fold. He’ll be holding down bass duties, while also contributing parts on lap-steel guitar and layering in other instrumental pieces that we’ve previously had to confine to the studio. This new chapter for the band opens a wealth of new creative possibilities for us, and we’re excited to give everyone a taste of this as Ben joins us on our dates surrounding Scorched Tundra Fest.”

Denver doom bringers, IN THE COMPANY OF SERPENTS, will bring their chest-caving tidings to the stage this March on a short but pummeling run of live incursions. Set to commence on March 6th in Salt Lake City, the duo will trounce nine cities down the West Coast and into the Southwest with additional rituals in the plotting stages.

Comments the band, “We are looking forward to our first tour of the West Coast, and are stoked about the bands we are playing with along the way. Venues and supporting bands will be announced in the coming weeks as we tie up the final details, but rest assured that each show has a killer lineup of some of the best heavy bands running. Let the waves of fuzz roll over you, empty your mind, and worship at the throne of Ohms.”

Cvlt Nation is streaming “A Union Of Opposites”, a new sonic landslide from In The Company Of Serpents that groans and moans like the bastard child of Leviathan and Neurosis. This beast of a statement seems to be about reconciling darkness and light within oneself, a task we all must undertake in life.

Merging In Light is the forthcoming EP from the band. Produced, mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Nightbringer, Primitive Man, Cobalt, etc.) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, Merging In Light is sure to be a worthy candidate for destroying the remnants of your hearing.

In celebration of its upcoming release, today Cvlt Nation hurls forth near ten-minute closing psalm, “A Union Of Opposites,” for public consumption noting simply and accurately that, “this track punishes you with its massive presence, but also keeps the mammoth groove in their riffs.”

Check the new song out HERE.

Merging In Light will be released on December 21st, 2014, the winter solstice, via the band’s official BandCamp page at THIS LOCATION.

Glory and Gore: Showing some horned love to Necrolust

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 6:23 PM (PST)


Ok, so it is a cold, winter night and I am drinking yet more coffee. I’d just listened to Landmine Marathon’s “Certain Death” three times in a row and had an idea. Feeling solidarity for my fellow metal journos and headbangers out there (cuz the real fans live for this shit). That said, tonight we are gonna plug the new Necrolust blog of metal scribe “Grim” Kim Kelly.

Necrolust is a new blog dedicated to posting random songs by bands Kim digs, and she knows what she is talking about. Kim is always doing more cool and metal things than most people I know, including usually myself. You can hear songs on her blog by Metal Riot favorites like In The Company of Serpents plus bands with names like Goat Penis and Rectal Hygenics I don’t think we have profiles for over here yet. Kim knows how to find the most obscure bands hiding under Satan’s charcoals and make them belch up brimstone.

She recently posted on Facebook:

“Introducing my new website, Necrolust! After spending the last ten years writing about obscure, underground, under-appreciated and generally awesome extreme metal for various publications, I wanted to dedicate my own tiny slice of the interwebs to my discoveries. Page 1 explains it more, but for now, come on in…”

Of the Flock

Back in 2012 I first got turned on to In The Company of Serpents, I think because of Grant’s awesome willingness to reach out to bloggers such as myself. He gave me the chance to review his band’s awesome self titled debut that August and then that October we did our first formal interview. Now Grant & Co. are back with In The Flock (a review of which you can expect soon) and him and I sat down to chat a bit about this awesome new release and what ITCOS are up to!
