After calling it quits a few years back, I am THRILLED to announce that Unearthly Trance are making their comeback! These dudes are seriously one of my all time favorite bands and them getting back to create more filth after all these years excites me to no end. The one thing that worries me is this: Serpentine Path was formed after Unearthly Trance concluded in 2012. Now that UT is back, will Serpentine cease? Regardless, we are getting back one of the fiercest bands and it’s coming to Relapse Records! Excite! Continue reading

One of the raddest deathsludge acts that have formed in the last few years has got to be Serpentine Path. Featuring members of Unearthly Trance, Winter, The Howling Wind and a former member of Electric Wizard, how would this super group not make amazingly killer sludge? Well, if you didn’t check out the bands debut album Serpentine Path, you can stream it here and check out my review here.
Once you’ve made yourself familiar, check out the bands new track “Disfiguring Colossus” after the jump. Holy damn. This is CRUSHING. N’joy. Continue reading

An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
Remember that review I did of deathdoom supergroup Serpentine Path‘s debut album? Well if you read that and have been curious for yourself, I have some news for you. Metalsluts is hosting a full album steam of this destructive slab of doom. I can’t tell you how fucking killer this release is. I mean, of all of the doom albums I jam regularly, few measure up to the unholy goodness that is Serpentine Path. So headbang this way and then come on back and talk about the album in the comments section. Get crushed. Serpentine Path was released on September 11th via Relapse Records.
Doom is a genre of music that I adore. I love the dredging guitars, the powerful energy and the all-around atmosphere that these bands spew forth. I have quite a catalog of different varieties of doom that I love, but one I cannot get enough of is the infamous deathdoom tag. What is it about deathdoom that I am drawn to? I believe it is the raw aggression that you get from death metal but slowed to an ungodly level. You can create a much darker and horrifying atmosphere from slow and depressing music than you can from fast, pissed off tunes. It is for this reason that I have fallen head-over-heels for the deathdoom supergroup Serpentine Path, whose members have more than a few hands in the doom field. This band has completely obliterated my senses and I cannot get enough. [Continue…]
You folks should know by now that I like my music one of two ways for the most part, fast and pissed off or slow and depressing. It comes as a pleasure for me to learn of new doom bands. It makes me even happier to learn of a new doom band whose membership is comprised of members of bands I love. This was the case for Serpentine Path, whose members include all of Unearthly Trance and Tim Bagshaw of the legendary act Electric Wizard. Is that a fucking line-up or what? And yes, the band is just as amazing as you would think.
Serpentine Path released a teaser not too long ago, which you can see below and now you can stream the whole track (titled “Crotalus Horridus Horridus”) over on Pitchfork. Do it, you know you want to. Serpentine Path‘s debut album will be released on September 11th via Relapse Records.
