Blood Harvest Records sets November 10th as the international release date for Serpentrance’s debut mini-album, The Besieged Sanctum, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Originally released as a limited-edition cassette in early 2015, The Besieged Sanctum introduced this Russian cult to the international underground with a lurking menace. Comprised of members hailing from such elite hordes as Pseudogod, Ill Omened, and Sickrites, Serpentrance create a swirling, sulfurous maelstrom of ritualistic black/death trance. Both seemingly improvised and militantly martial, The Besieged Sanctum heaves its hulking mass in a deceptively doomed manner: always a sense of vertigo engulfs the listener, no matter the tempo – from sub-atomic crawl to blastbeaten bestiality – and textures bleed in and out like a lingering fog. Now amended with an exclusive bonus track, the 31 minutes comprising this new Blood Harvest version creates a gestating womb of eldritch dread and incantory solemnity.
