ORDO CULTUM SERPENTIS - Debut EP Out In February, Presents First Track

Ordo Cultum Serpentis, a new cross-continental entity comprising V (South Korea) and Fr. Der Cadaver (México), will release on 12th February via Signal Rex the debut EP titled Derej Najash, on cassette tape format. Together, the duo create an ambient sort of blackened death-doom - or perhaps deathened black-doom? Or doomed black-death? Either way, such words as black and death and most especially doom apply to the band's first public recording, Derej Najash.

Ritualistic from the opening notes to the bitter end, Derej Najash is composed of two epic-length tracks across 27 total minutes. Moments of tense quietude linger but then are jarringly ripped asunder by expulsions of grinding bestiality, all before dragging the tempo down into the abyss. Haunting moans and ritual bells also drift across the sound field, putting Derej Najash further beyond the realms of normalcy or complacent listening. The sum effect is that Ordo Cultum Serpentis are sonic titans just beginning their inexorable march to the end... Listen to "Chapter 1" in the player below. Link
