JOB FOR A COWBOY And THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Members Join Forces In SERPENT OF GNOSIS

Death/grind band SERPENT OF GNOSIS will release its debut album, "As I Drink From The Infinite Well Of Inebriation", on June 14 via 1126 Records.

The first song from the disc, "The Colorless Capsules", can be streamed below.

The project began with musicians Max Lavelle, Al Glassman and Darren Cesca playing in the band GORATORY. Inevitably, they each took different paths over the years. However, old friends have reunited and sparked a musical connection with SERPENT OF GNOSIS. Glassman and Cesca were writing the music in 2018 and ultimately turned to their former and current bandmates, who are in THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and JOB FOR A COWBOY, to help fill the gaps. After a unique recording process where the members individually tracked their parts from home, the album was mixed by drummer Darren Cesca in his own House Of Grind studio.

While some uber extreme forms of metal tend to rely on religious themes of horror and imagery of gore and evil, SERPENT OF GNOSIS took a route that hit a bit closer to home. The band explored concepts such as addiction and what that can do to both the human psyche and the body. "As I Drink From The Infinite Well Of Inebriation" is an album that provides a first-person perspective and tells its stories through the eyes of an individual dealing with severe and near-crippling drug addiction.

Davy stated about SERPENT OF GNOSIS and "The Colorless Capsules": "We are a collection of small cavemen who enjoy fast and heavy things. This song describes instances of addiction and the dependencies that align with it, particularly in the pharmaceutical form."

SERPENT OF GNOSIS is:

Al Glassman - Guitar
Tony Sannicandro - Guitar
Max Lavelle - Bass
Darren Cesca - Drums
Jonny Davy - Vocals
