From the haunted shores of purgatory, a spectral entity cryptically summoned as Nahasheol rose from a cauldron of ominous shade carrying a will of draconian fire. With an inception dating back to last year, the enigma twisted waves under the sign of Kaaosoth, a three-song tome bursting with sinister ecstasy and sheer darkness. Now, a new vortex has been carved, a pathway into the realms of timeless chaos is unchained. Enter Serpens Abyssi! From the first moments of the belligerent opening Arcanum Mortuus, NAHASHEOL set the pathway to its journey, crafted from the nether regions with a blazing ardor of Black Metal devilry. Whether through fast impending rages of visceral wrath or alluring melodic strokes, a scorching ordeal of unholy riffing engraves a spiritual trail to the Luciferian mysteries with a poisonous drive, destructive electrical compulsions which permeate the whole record, ever hardening and potent, as varied as reeking with the essence of Black Metal Tradition.
Organic and dynamic, the utterly brilliant sonic alchemy, courtesy of Daniel Souza and Tore Stjerna, focuses on atmosphere, energy and metallic venom in equal measures. An overall compelling sound showcases a charismatic rhythmic section forged by pulsating impulses of percussive excellence, backing magnetic six-string gifts to the unlimited underworld while an enigmatic voice hails the chthonic revelations, narrating the aetheric void with fearless momentum. Such words of sacred meaning encounter a striking parallel on the magnanimous visual traits, meticulously crafted graphics, channeling the Promethean Fire, reflections of the magickal meaning and spiritual cadence behind NAHASHEOL’s Expression.
Serpens Abyssi takes the listener on a treacherous and unforgiving journey into the sacred Luciferian trails, a ceremonial cast of abyssal emanations, pledged to be carved in black blood in the very heart of its enthralled disciple.
