WOLVSERPENT To Headline North American Spring Tour w/ A STORY OF RATS

April 25th, 2011
by EvilG

WOLVSERPENT, the blackened brainchild of longtime collaborators Blake Green and Brittany McConnell, have announced that they will once again be hitting the road in support of their avant-garde masterpiece, Blood Seed. The sprawling compositions contained therein gracefully wend their way through the valleys of death, drone, black metal, doom, and chamber music and arrive triumphantly on foreign shores. Borne of the duo’s 20+ years of classical training and deep appreciation for the works of composers like Arvo Part, Gyoygy Ligeti,  and Ennio Morricone, WOLVSERPENT‘s vision combines stringed amplified instruments with a 21st century approach to composition to create works that are dark, emotional, menacing, cinematic, atmospheric, and heartbreakingly beautiful.

Blood Seed was originally released on virgin vinyl by the illustrious 20 Buck Spin in the year 2010, and will soon be made available as a 2xCD (containing the Blood Seed album as well as Gathering Strengths, an earlier release under their former moniker) by Crucial Blast on May 31st, 2011. A mammoth 32-date tour looms ahead of WOLVSERPENT and opening allies, blackened dronesters A STORY OF RATS. Along the way, they’ll be joined by the likes of SCOTT “WINO” WEINRICH, MASTER MUSICIANS OF BUKKAKE,AMBER ASYLUM, TOMBS, A STORM OF LIGHT, WITCH MOUNTAIN, UZALA, KAYO DOT, and many more.

Witness.
