FROM SERPENT ASCENDING:
SERPENT ASCENDING "Aṇaṅku" CD
Out September 16th, 2016
Once in the ranks of the Finnish cult death metal acts Slugathor and Nerlich, over the years Jarno Nurmi has always taken a low profile. Many know him for being half of the Desecresy's line-up and a live member of Cosmic Church, but Nurmi is also active with SERPENT ASCENDING, the torchbearer of his peculiar death metal vision and occult concept. Nurmi gave birth to SERPENT ASCENDING in 2008, debuting 3 years later on I, Voidhanger Records with "The Enigma Unsettled," a collection of demos that drew attention to the band's traditional yet unconventional style.
"Aṇaṅku" is a mesmerizing slab of death metal, fascinatingly shrouded in mystery and occultism. Hidden in the dark for years, it's now time for SERPENT ASCENDING to show its pronged tongue once again, and to fill our chalices with venom.
