Enslain Magazine Issue #7
Extreme heavy metal... this is different. Hailing from Sweden, Serpent Obscene play a unique blend of classic heavy metal and death metal brutality. Blazing guitar solos are common, and emphasis is given on words beginning certain verses by being chanted in unison. This makes for a rather retro sound, but with all of the weaker elements of that time period being replaced by deadly guitar sounds and fast, flawless drumwork. Their sound is strong, it really has no weak points within any of the three songs here. Serpent Obscene are technically proficient, and claim a sound of their own.
