Atra Serpens is an album different from anything ever heard in black metal nowadays. Out of all the cliches of the style, Ain Sof Aur can show highly pure ideology both in their lyrics and instrumentals. It's a bomb that explodes slowly in 31 minutes of brutality.
The album begins with prevailing chaos, then everyone should be prepared for destruction of the ears which is kept in all the songs. The guitar and drums are totally clean, a beautiful work by Sorath Abaddon and Vulkan M61-A1, as if the riffs are dancing towards rottenness. The intensity of the notes is exciting. The highlight is on Celestial Moral, my favorite song.
The vocals are another story. The owner of the powerful voice that proclaims its ideology, M. Harab Serapel, underwent a metamorphosis for Atra Serpens. It is a remarkable evolution until this work. It can be felt especially in Call of the Sick. Just brutal. You can't listen to this song once.
Atra Serperns screams and bothers those who hear it. The material's quality is outward, from the art made by Nothing Sacred artwork to the booklet produced by Serapel, show the dedication to this record. There are 20 pages that tell in detail the history of Atra Serpens, with a mix of reality and irony. Desgraça Records certainly must not regret having released such material. An album of odd Brazilian black metal.
