Vortex Omnivium Everyone knows there's a lot of high-quality metal from Finland, and this album is no exception. Its old-school vibe paired with catchy grooves make it very listenable on any occasion, and the awesome songwriting with lots of interesting details keep it far away from ever becoming boring. Favorite track: Saturnal.

-------------------------------

Coming from Helsinki, Finland, SERPENT ASCENDING is the dark projection of Jarno Nurmi, appreciated bass/guitar player and singer in bands like Slugathor, Desecresy, Nerlich, Night Must Fall, and Nowen.

Firmly rooted in the old school of death metal, but far from being another sterile revival of the late 80's/early 90's, Serpent Ascending started a peculiar creative process that allocates death metal into an inner - yet still nightmarish - dimension of the soul, where cavernous growls lay down on nervous and slanted guitar riffs, vertiginous bass grooves, sudden bursts of speed, and swampy slowdowns. Apparently simple and straight to the point, Serpent Ascending's music hides a remarkable work on subtle harmonies and flowing songwriting, with atmospheric nuances and intriguing details that crawl unseen into each song as well as in the listener's subconscious, bringing forth a hallucinating, twisted and occult vibe.

"The Enigma Unsettled" collectes both the "Serpent Ascending" and "The Mournful Pilgrimage" recordings from 2009 and 2010 on one record, together with a brand new song.

Serpent Ascending is the feverish, solipsistic delirium of an artist that renovates the true spirit and typical dark heaviness of Finnish death metal in his own, personal way.
