"This past Saturday Toby, Zac and I attended a show in Pittsburgh at the 31st Street Pub that included Foghound, Kingsnake and Supervoid. It was an amazing show but a rather disappointing turnout which is usually the case when it comes to incredible music. The opening band was a pleasant surprise which I later found out was from the Steel City. I also realized that they had never been featured on the pages of Heavy Planet neither. We'll here is your introduction to Serpent Lord.
After hearing the band play live it was evidenced and confirmed by my fellow Heavy Planet compadres that the band has a very Alice in Chains-like feel. Especially in the guitar sound. But the band takes that sound to a much doomier level and totally brings a satisfying heavy groove to the table. The songs were tight and the band had a very nice chemistry playing off each other very well. I can't help but gush over the vocals of Chris Booth. Gritty, raspy and very melodic. The perfect fit for their music.
According to the band, a full-length is in the works and should be out very soon. Until then you can check out a few demo songs they have up on their Bandcamp page.
