SERPENT THRONE
WHITE SUMMER BLACK WINTER
TRANSLATION LOSS

Vintage hard rock revivalists Serpent Throne are an instrumental metal troupe that puts their fuzz pedals to the metal to develop a smoking 11-track excursion entitled WHUTE SUMMER BLACK WINTER. Cascading twin guitars do an exemplary job of switching moods from monolithic doom to harmonious stoner shuffle (“Riff Forest”), usurping the vocalist position with poise and power (“Last Spark of the Sun”). Bluesy and ballsy (“White Summer - Black Winter”) with more than a fair shake of Sabbath, early Scorpions, and Thin Lizzy in its back pocket, this Philadelphia, PA quartet’s blend of soaring retro rock and histrionic six string tradeoffs (“Pagan Eclipse”) is the premiere soundtrack choice for the time machine, exuding the spirit of brotherly love with organically-grown grooves, massive musical depth and a freewheeling flow firmly intact.
