Mug One of the better musical amalgams I've heard in a hot minute. The emotion is there, the heaviness is fully in tact, it bares it's ugly fangs at all the right moments. Fuck yes, Roman. Favorite track: Serpent Soul (A Tale of Angels’ Slaughter).

Through the ages of carnage I free the souls from lie Through the ages of carnage I’m never satisfied Doom and rage of my nature are The sequel of their prayers And revenge burns my veins ‘cause I will never die Scent of their blood - holy pleasure that through the angels’ cries makes me alive Hangman? Am I? The same odd presage that from the birth to grave fills their minds Resurrection of my time I'll cut off their wings they're fucking mine Demon’s blood I forced them to drink You’ll never bleach that was born in black I sail the seas of their flesh In the winds of endless dying All their wings are my flame ‘cause The dream of my life is to fly Scent of their blood - holy pleasure that through the angels’ cries makes me alive Hangman? Am I? The same odd presage that from the birth to grave fills their minds Through the ages of carnage I’m never satisfied Scent of their blood - holy pleasure that through the angels’ cries makes me alive Hangman? Am I? The same odd presage that from the birth to grave fills their minds Resurrection of my time I'll cut off their wings they're fucking mine Demon’s blood I forced them to drink You’ll never bleach that was born in black

Drown me in wine Away from this light All unrest has gone when you came to my side Flow and surround Burn all this ground Bring me to life and I’ll rip all these rats’ guts out Enter my mind Now it’s all thine Snakes in your lungs await for a new sacrifice You are the one Who is calming my heart Take me to mountains of your endless lust Are you watching? ‘Cause I need your desire I am losing all in that light I want to kneel and cry for you are divine, take my soul and shine Unleash the curse inside you Turn all their flesh into dusk and your moans ‘cause the poison in your eyes is the light of my life Break up the sun Cause the darkness to come I’ll let you drain all their veins by your charm Claws plunged in blood Still hold me tight Take me away and embrace till I die Are you watching? ‘Cause I need your desire I am losing all in that light I want to kneel and cry for you are divine, take my soul and shine Unleash the curse inside you Are you watching? ‘Cause I need your desire I am losing all in that light I want to kneel and die for your divine, take my soul and life Unleash the curse inside you I’ll burn them all to save you

Waves of grief surround my universe, through the thousand of years I defend my solitude and the realm where there’s no falsity, rats and disgrace They burn my shapes and every symbol that reminds of me And all that filth I turn into swords in their necks and silence and lands of gore With all my arms in blood With all my cruelty With sublime purity that I will never lose For I’m Fall and I’m Faith Eternal Deliver us from plague and grief in our hearts For I’m blessed and I’m cursed Cursed winds they send to me and for a thousand years I’ve been cutting their beliefs and heads for darkness is the only truth The choirs of tongues which I’ve ripped out upon the lakes of rot from every fucking heart I’ve squeezed and cast at the one above to watch him catch With all my serpent blood With all my holy grace With all my burden which I didn’t choose For I’m Fall and I’m Faith Eternal Deliver us from plague and grief in our hearts For I’m blessed and I’m cursed For I’m Fall and I’m Faith Eternal Deliver us from plague and grief in our hearts Forever blessed, forever cursed - Amen! Deliver me from rage and hate in my heart For I’m Fall and I’m Faith

about

“Endless Embrace” sees Filatov showing off his range, offsetting chugging, bottom-heavy riffs with gorgeous, synth-washed melodies and trading off his venomous, throat-ripping growls with hypnotic clean vocals. Filatov also incorporated an array of world music influences."

"Blackened, Classic Doom. The project covers everything from Monolord-esque riffs to more Khemmis-style blackened doom.
If you like them, you'll like this."

"Album-opener and advance-single “Serpent Soul (A Tale of Angels’ Slaughter)” speaks well of the cross-genre heavy extremity to come. It makes an enticing lead-in for sure, and dude very clearly has his hands in multiple styles, which he brings together with marked fluidity."
- THE OBELISK
theobelisk.net/obelisk/tag/present-serpent/

“This guy has one hell of a range and can do whatever he wants. It sounds stupendous, the production is crystal clear and helps show off everything happening in the songs. Vocals are extraordinarily—this dude screams his ass off through out the album using a blackened scream. However, he also has beautiful clean vocal approach so he also sings his ass off too. This album does a lot of different things but I'd day this is overall a sludge/doom album but one with a lot of different dimensions.”
