about

Emanations is the sophomore album from NYC doom super group SERPENTINE PATH. The band’s 2012 self-titled debut was a boldly grim statement of unforgiving misanthropy that referenced both the filthy riffs of Autopsy and the stoney doom of Sleep. Now officially augmented by second guitarist Stephen Flam, the mastermind behind NYC doom/death legends Winter, SERPENTINE PATH are truly a heavy metal all-star team (the band also features current and former members of doom legends Electric Wizard, Unearthly Trance and Ramesses). Sure, the pedigree is undeniable, but regardless of their ‘members of’ status, SERPENTINE PATH are one of the heaviest bands on the planet today!

feeds for this album, this artist
Track Name: Essence of Heresy
Breath in the air of dissension
Antithesis of fraudulent doctrines
Endless oppression and control
And yet it still moves

Flames of the sun melt the minds of the weak

The purest essence of heresy

Funereal organizations
Bathed in fallacy
Denial of the dictations
Soundless life and slavish fools

Flames of the sun melt the minds of the weak

The purest essence of heresy

Corpse hungry empires poised to swallow your soul
Strangling silencers and supreme suppressors
The wretched core rots from the inside out
Track Name: House of Worship
House of worship
Built to crumble
No sleep for the witches
Under a foul spell

Rats invade the basement
False indivisible theory
Goats in lavish extravagance
Sheep bathing in the blood

House of worship
Built to crumble
Vapid empty terrain
Cursed burial grounds

Clandestine medicine man
Famine under black out
Conditioned not to lash out
Holy intimidation

Nervous system crooked
Alleviated by submission
Punctured bleeding surfaces
Crows devouring the pieces
Memory wiped clean
One day the wall will crumble
Peril of uncertainty
War of the unknown
Track Name: Treacherous Waters
The glaring white sun
Searing the frozen eyes
Sinking into oceanic trench
Morose nautical realms

Phantom voices taunting the soul
Transfixed and drifting at the helm

Drawn into the depths
Vacant incantations
Haunted by the mariners of the past

Surrendering underneath
The eternal cloak
Hands of time
Ordained by the stars

Navigating the treacherous waters
Transfixed and drifting at the helm

Drawn into the depths
Vacant incantations
Haunted by the mariners of the past

Abyss of the unknown
Track Name: Claws
Distraught and motionless
Shaking with uncertainty
Horror inconceivable
Recoiled from sanity

Seeping in toxic atmosphere
Prelude to catastrophe
Invisible beast attack
Unleashed from the beyond

Abolished from this dimension
Summoned from the depths
A subconscious electrocution
Future destructive uncertainty

Seeping in toxic atmosphere
Prelude to catastrophe
Invisible beast attack
Unleashed from the beyond

Extraterrestrial mutant spirit
Invasion from unknown galaxy
Defenseless and devoured
Drifting into the afterlife
Track Name: Disfigured Colossus
No longer towering above all
Maimed beyond repair
No longer ruling on the throne
Malignant conditions

Drained of life force through violence
Fracture facade forevermore

Disfigured Colossus

Crumbling fortresses horrify all
Veering into the unthinkable
Cowering beneath the horrendous
Venturing into the unknown

Drained of life force through violence
Fire forces the fragile fate

Disfigured Colossus

Tyrant has been silenced
Sheer force changes the future
Invincible has been unhinged
Souls search for sanctuary
Track Name: Systematic Extinction
Psychic warnings are dripping with fresh blood
Unmarked headstones as far as the eye can see

Endless funeral ditches embedded in the soil

No warning of the silent order of reductionists
The death rattle of billions signals the finale

Endless funeral ditches embedded in the soil

Nightmares of systematic extinction
Nightmares of systematic extinction

Souls being poured into the cauldron of lava
Vile implications beneath the veil of silence

Endless funeral ditches embedded in the soil

Nightmares of systematic extinction
Nightmares of systematic extinction
Track Name: Torment
Between two worlds of violence
Chaos empties its guts out on the floor
Daggers in the brain, floor collapsed
Floating in the lava of despair

Mirrors fractured
Trees burning
Skin scorched
Eyes blinded
No purification
Soil is dead
Bones crushed
Senses erased

Between hell and purgatory
Each illusion tempts the other
No chance to survive in this realm
Escape the distortion and contortion

Mirrors fractured
Trees burning
Skin scorched
Eyes blinded
No purification
Soil is dead
Bones crushed
Senses erased

Agony speaks in uncertainty
Insanity speaks in tongues
Further away from the destiny
Some souls never learn the way

Only the undying will to exist
Extinguishes the torment
The specter is always lurking
Behind the mountain of death
