Serpentcult Weight Of Light Vinyl LP
Some bands are heavy and some bands are F***ING HEAVY! Belgiums SerpentCult (as spelt) most definitely fall into the latter. Comprising of various veterans of the Belgian underground Doom Metal scene, they set about battering galaxies with some of the most unorthodox and complex heavy riffs yet known to man during the heady summer of 2006. Weight Of Light, was recorded at Priory Studios, Birmingham with the grandmaster of subsonic frequencies, Greg Chandler (Esoteric). Mixing was handled Billy Anderson (High On Fire, Neurosis etc) at his Oakland home studios. The combination of savage material and the weighty pedigree of people involved in the production has resulted in creating one the absolute heaviest metal albums you will hear this year. Defying generic categorization, Weight Of Light transcends beyond standard Doom fare into a maze of uncompromising rifferama. The title track, itself, sounding like a combination of the heaviest Goatsnake offerings mixed with a hint of Celtic Frostiness and (80s Belgian Metal legends) Acid. The all out Doom-odyssey of Akarnum reminds us how monumental and utterly devastating this often-overlooked genre can actually be.
