Ghost Cult has teamed up with Grand Rapids Michigan extreme metal band Vestigial to debut their full album stream for Crown of Serpents, out this Saturday, November 2nd. Brutal, bleak and straddling the line between classic and modern sounds, this band is definitely one you need to add to your end of year playlists. Purchase and stream the album at the link below!
The band commented:
“With Crown Of Serpents we aimed to dig deeper and paint a darker picture than we’ve done previously. After taking on our new drummer Mike Miller we doubled down on technicality and sought to blend the aggressive and evil elements of death metal with the melodic and groovy aspects of metalcore to find a sound all our own. Lyrically, I think this album speaks volumes about the frailty of our health as a species with both internal and external battles. A lot of people have difficulty making it out alive, and I think it’s important those people connect with that message and understand it happens to the best of us. If you take away anything from this album, it should be that you shouldn’t hesitate to reach out if you’re losing those battles.” – Michael Stellema, vocals/guitar
