Serpent Crown are a band from California that plays a mixture of sludge and thrash metal and this is a review of their self titled 2013 album which was released by Horror Pain Gore Productions.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine sludge and thrash metal together to create a sound of their own along with some hardcore elements, while the lead guitars are very old school and melodic sounding thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all old school power/thrash metal vocals, while the lyrics cover darkness and mythology themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Serpent Crown are a very great sounding hybrid of thrash metal and sludge and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Prelude To The Netherworld' and "Children Of The Night". RECOMMENDED BUY.
