Serpentcult are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Raised By Wolves" which was released by Listenable Records.
Drums are all slow drumming with no fast playing or blast beats being present on the recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound.
Rhythm guitars are all slow sludge/doom metal riffs that are very dark and melodic sounding at times with some Neurosis style riffing being thrown in at times that gives the music an ambient feel and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on the recording.
Vocals are mostly clean singing vocals with some high pitched sludge screams being thrown in at times and the vocals are not used alot on the recording since the music is mostly instrumental, while the lyrics cover datrk themes, as for the production it has a very powerful and heavy sound to it.
In my opinion Serpentcult are a very good sludge/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Raised By Wolves" and "Growth Of The Soul". RECEMMONDED BUY.
