Denver doom metal practitioners, In the Company of Serpents, has just unleashed an assault of heavy with the release of their new track, “Third Mind,” over at RevolverMag.com. Go listen to this now! You’ll be hooked from the first crash of the crushing drums and then you’ll be carried away on the ebb and flow of the pulsating groove.
Comments vocalist/guitarist Grant Netzorg of the track:
The title for this song comes from a concept I came across when reading about William Burroughs and Brion Gysin’s work together, although the concept isn’t their invention. The idea is basically that when any two minds come together a third mind is created by their association, interplay, discourse, or whatever you want to call it, that is superior to either of the individual minds.
The track comes off of the upcoming Merging in Light three-song EP, which was produced, mixed, and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Nightbringer, Primitive Man, Cobalt, etc.) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado. The EP will be released independently on December 21, 2014, on a limited 12″ colored vinyl with an etched B-side. The release features artwork by renowned illustrator Sam Turner; the two ouroboros serpents forming the Vesica Piscis symbol on the front and back cover will be done in UV spot gloss on the jacket, so it will have the appearance of glossy black against matte black. Additionally, 100 of the 500 records pressed will have a haze of black set against a milky, semi-translucent white, and will also come with a printed slipmat available. The remaining 400 will be white vinyl.
Pre-orders can be made here.
In the Company of Serpents will bring their thunderous compositions to the live front with a handful of local rituals with additional performances to be announced shortly.
