Serpent Noir Black metal from Greece, debut full-length album released in 2012

Serpent Noir

It’s been quite a busy year for one Michayah Belfagor, this being the third release this year with which he’s been involved (the others being OFERMOD’s “Thaumiel” and NEFANDUS’ “Your God is a Ghost” ). An unholy union of sorts between the aforementioned Belfagor (drums/ritual percussion) and a group of Greek musicians (including members of EMBRACE OF THORNS, among others), SERPENT NOIR is yet another ‘Qliphotic’ Black/Death Metal band, but a damn good one at that!

I didn’t really know what to expect going into “Seeing Through The Shadow Consciousness…”, seeing as how I missed out on their prior release (the “Sanguis XI” MCD), but as soon as the aural storm that is “Allies from the Black Sun Universe” roared forth from the speakers I knew this was going to be an intense ride. With a barbed-wired guitar sound and the kind of ‘controlled chaos’ riff work that brings to mind GORGOROTH, I was immediately sold by the first song. Hell, even the vocals have a bit of classic Gaahl in them, even if they are ultimately a tad deeper. The band is no mere GORGOROTH clone, however, as they also dive headfirst into some seriously old school (and almost Punky) Blackened Thrash (think early BATHORY, HELLHAMMR) on “Dragon Egregore”, settlling on a more straightforward and aggressive BM approach on “Voids of Samael, Parts I & II”, and even bringing things to a screeching halt on “Dragon Noir” where some electronic effects and ritual chanting join the fray. After that it’s another lightning assault right til the last second as “Open Up The Shells” harks back to the aforementioned GORGOROTH aesthetic.

No, they won’t win any awards for originality but the guys in SERPENT NOIR definitely know their way around an effective Black Metal song. That the songs remain so engaging in spite of their (relative) simplicity is a testament to the band’s songwriting chops. The album does lose a little bit of steam during its second half, but by that time the band had done enough to win me over. Credit must also be given to Belfagor, whose drumming contributes massively to the “fun” quotient here. It’s cool to hear him blast and bash away in wild abandon for once. “Seeing Through The Shadow Consciousness” serves as an effective little snapshot of the Black Metal aesthetic at large – digging into it’s raw thrashy beginnings, throwing in a few Death Metal detours here and there, and also not forgetting that all important aspect of conviction and passion for this dark craft.
