Playing dark and atmospheric heavy metal, a throwback to the 70’s and 80’s in both sound and lyrical approach, Sweden’s In Solitude are on the brink of releasing their second full length via Metal Blade entitled “The World. The Flesh. The Devil”. ‘Serpents are Rising’ is the first track made available to the public and shows the band making a logical progression from their first self titled album.
Frontman Pelle Åhman commented: “Certain fragments of ‘Serpents are Rising’ are among the oldest parts ofThe World. The Flesh. The Devil and the song was steadily taking form throughout the whole writing and recording process, and the last parts were put together just minutes before it was recorded. It is certainly one of the more straight-forward and stabbing-paced songs on the album and I think it’s a worthy representative of that erupting energy of the album, as well as the self-sacrifice made. The poem was written by Viusiudad (of Reveal) and was given a title and put in song-context myself. And like everything with brother Viusiudad; a strange, holy and collaborative effort. Blessings to him! And the poem deals with the ever-present, ever-guiding and ever-rising inner serpent.”
