IN THE COMPANY OF SERPENTS ALBUM REVIEW

In the Company of Serpents Cover Art

In The Company Of Serpents are a Sludge/Stoner Metal Band from Denver, USA

The members are:

Brown Notes & Scratchy Throat: Grant Netzorg
Skins: Joseph Weller Myer

In The Company of Serpents (ITCOS) play a brutal and heavy brand of Sludge Metal mixed in with elements of Hardcore and Stoner Metal.

These guys worship at the same riffling church as KYUSS, Sabbath and Sleep. As they share a lot of things in common with those great bands. So if you’re into those guys then you’re going to love these.

ITCOS have just released their superb S/T debut album. It’s a 5 song 35 minute blast of top-notch Sludge/Stoner Metal riff age that will have you begging for more.

These guys show what they are made on this superb release. They play a mid-tempo low tuned style of Sludge/Stoner Metal with great vocals to match. They know how to play mighty fine bass-driven riff on some of the outstanding tracks on show. Especially on tracks like “Dirtnap”, “Inferno” and the 9:28 minute epic “Canto III Inferno”

ITCOS are a seriously heavy band and play their riffs to maximum volume. The type of Sludge/Stoner Metal I like the most. And this album has it in spades. Their are no hardcore based death grunts just outstanding clean vocals that have an air of supreme confidence about them.

The guys are superb musicians and prove it time and time again on this superb release. It's superbly produced from the word go. And you can hear every hard hitting note played to perfection. Play this great release loud as you can and get immeresed in the world of this great band.

As this is an outstanding release from another great band to discover out there. This is a brutal groove based Sludge/Stoner Metal thrill ride and one I want to take over and over again.

SImply Superb and Highly Recommended.
