Review: Serpentine Path – Serpentine Path

Rated:

3/5

With a lineup consisting of all three members of New York sludge-doom trio Unearthly Trance alongside former Electric Wizard/current Ramesses bassist Tim Bagshaw, Serpentine Path were/are pretty much destined to deliver a respectable level of detuned satisfaction. While the band’s debut breaks pretty much zero new ground, Serpentine Path’s thudding death-doom will have genre enthusiasts rolling their stoned skulls in graveyard genuflection. Meandering and dirge-like, the eight songs here live up to the band’s moniker, weaving slow and snaky through the album’s 42 minutes and what we can only presume is a veritable wall of amplification. Tune in and nod out. J. BENNETT
