Serpent Crown – “Serpent Crown Demo” – [Myspace.com/theserpentcrown]
Thrash-core metal trio from SF. Fronted by destructive guitrarist Dara Santhai, who also provides vocals and writes the tunes. Technical poundage from drummer Will Carrol (of Old Grandad). Heavy bass keeps the sonic walls moving in as the listener is pushed down the chamber–recording features Rafa Martinez (former of Acid King and other bands), current bassist is Dave Dinsmore (past BL’AST!).
All tracks are generally uptempo dark riffage power laden bruisers. Vocals are the intelligible terror laden scream chants of a blood bathed axe lasher. Production delivers great presence with no contrivance. Turn it up.
