Brand-new group Serpent of Gnosis contains a few familiar faces: frontman Jonny Davy, who cut his teeth in the deathcore-turned-progressive-death-metal group Job for a Cowboy, plus JFAC guitarist Alan Glassman and The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Max Lavelle. The product of their collaboration is their debut album, As I Drink from the Infinite Well of Inebriation.
While first single “The Colorless Capsules” contains a few comparisons to some of its members’ other bands, it’s a unique beast that falls somewhere between grinding death metal and deathcore.
“We are a collection of small cavemen who enjoy fast and heavy things,” Davy tells Decibel. “This song describes instances of addiction and the dependencies that align with it, particularly in the pharmaceutical form.”
As I Drink From The Infinite Well Of Inebriation is out on June 14.
