SERPENT LORD (GR) BIOGRAPHY

Serpent Lord (GR) is a new heavy metal band from Thessaloniki, Greece and they were formed on January 2016 by Konstantinos Sotirelis and George Terzitanos.

On 13th of May 2017, at their show with Omen, the band released their first demo, which includes the songs “Sacrilegium” and “Blood Offering”. The band has sold 150 copies of the demo and gained very good reviews from webzines and magazines around the world.

A few months later, the band hit the studio so as to records its debut album, called “Towards the Damned”. The recordings were done at Infected Studios (summer 2017-winter 2018) with George Infected (Mass Infection) as a producer. George managed to give a late eighties –early nineties sound to the band, being influenced from Iced Earth’s and Death’s sound, but with a modern aspect.

“Towards the Damned”
was released on September 14th 2018 via Alcyone Records and so far the reviews are more than great. It contains 10 powerful songs, from which one is instrumental, one is an atmospheric ballad and another one is written in Phrygian language. The album was selected as “Album of the Month” on the Greek Metal Hammer, while it gained great reviews from Powerplay Magazine, Fireworks, Rock Overdose, Metal.de, Rock Hard Greece, Ultraje, etc.

On November 26th 2019, Serpent Lord (GR) released their single called “Horned God”, which includes the song “Horned God” and a cover on Death’s “Sacred Serenity”, with clean vocals. Both the new song and the cover, show a more aggressive, progressive and atmospheric approach of the band. The single has gained great reviews from the fans and the press worldwide.

 

Finally, the band released a new single for the song “The Gospel of Judas” on December 15th, which was recorded on summer 2020 at Infected Studios, with George Stournaras (Mass Infection) as producer, once again. The band also released a new lyric video for the song, made by Giannis Antoniou.


Serpent Lord (GR) pays a lot of attention to their image and their live shows. On their shows they use two big banners with seals from Archangels, a table with skulls, candles, books about magic and a Testament and they put candles all around the stage. Also, they have two people dressed as monks near the banners. “For us, it’s not just a live show, it is a ritual. The songs talk about rituals, about magic and religions, about demons, so we try to create the appropriate atmosphere on our shows”, they state.

On May 14 2018, the band released its first video clip for the new song “The Lesser Key”. The music video was directed by Bob Katsionis (guitars/keyboards at Firewind, Outloud). A couple of months after the album’s release, on December 22nd, the band released its second video clip for the song “Seed of Divine”, once again directed by Bob Katsionis. Serpent Lord’s third video clip is for the song “Ambassador of the New Age” (released on April 22nd 2019) and it’s a live music video, videoshooted by Christos Manidakis and edited/directed by Giannis Antoniou. Their latest music video is for the single “Horned God”, directed by Bob Katsionis once again (November 12th 2019).


In August, the band decided to add the “(GR)” on the name, so as not to be confused with other bands with the same name.

The band has accomplished its first European tour on May 2019, called “The Damned Tour – Europe Under Damnation”, supporting the legendary thrash metal Germans Necronomicon. Serpent Lord (GR) visited Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Romania, for six shows. Before their tour, they performed at the 1st Lake Metal Festival at Kastoria, with Rotting Christ.


On December 2019, Serpent Lord (GR) accomplished a seven-date Greek tour with Blaze Bayley (ex- Iron Maiden).

 

By now, Serpent Lord (GR) have shared the stage with Primordial, Rotting Christ, Blaze Bayley (ex- Iron Maiden – Greek Tour), Necronomicon (European Tour), Innerwish, Omen (2 times), Grand Magus, Exarsis and Northwind.
