Serpentine Dominion is a project that brings together three extreme
metal veterans that joined forces while playing with their respective
bands at the Mayhem Festival in 2009.
The project was kept under wraps for a time, and the trio finally
emerged with a self-titled album in 2016.
The album doesn't sound quite like any of the members' bands yet
it's not too far removed from any of them either,
sliding somewhat more toward metalcore than straight death metal.
All three guys predictably put out great performances, in particular
Shannon Lucas's hyperactive drumming deserves a special note.
Solid if not particularly surprising or genre-expanding.
