Ordo Cultum Serpentis - Derej Najash (2021)


Delivering a 26 minute slab of crushing music, today we have International entity Ordo Cultum Serpentis and their debut EP “Derej Najash”. Featuring two tracks of 13 minutes each, the band’s sound is as close as we can imagine the depths of hell to sound like. Mixing a great deal of ambient elements with chugging slow riffs and creepy vocals, this release is perfect for a dark somber night.

Opening with “Chapter 1”, the album starts with a ritualistic vibe of eerie chants and sounds and slowly descends into madness with superbly slow distorted guitars and desolate atmospherics. As the track evolves, there are fierce fast-paced passages with hellish shrieks and a very cavernous vibe. The second piece, “Chapter 2”, continues with the ritualistic atmospherics and sparse drumming, slowly building into savagely punishing simple riffs and more disturbing vocal arrangements.

After closing with haunting chants, the band really focuses on making creepy music full of eerie and bone-chilling elements that does not get repetitive or dull. Ordo Cultum Serpentis shows great talent in writing songs that while not technically complex, they manage to get under the listener’s skin with their funky atmospherics and cavernous pace. If you like dark and creepy music, “Derej Najash” is an album that will haunt your dreams.
