Melbourne, Australia's Holy Serpent are releasing their third album Endless on October 18 via RidingEasy Records (pre-order), and we're premiering album opener "Lord Deceptor." If you like the fuzzed-out doom of Electric Wizard and Windhand, you'll want to dive right into this one, though Holy Serpent mix it up with a more ethereal vocal style than you might expect from a band with riffs like these.

It might not be hard to figure out the band's musical influences, but as for the lyrics, vocalist/guitarist Scott Penberthy explains: "it's heavily influenced by the ocean." He adds, "Lots of ocean metaphors and imagery was used. Also the title of the album Endless, is an homage to the ocean: Its mystery, power and its ability to give and take life."
