Following on from the intimidating onslaught of “Blood Covenant”, Belgian black metal force Serpents Oath present a second single from their hugely anticipated new album, “Revelation”. “Purification Through Fire” is another blazing masterpiece of black metal that will decimate the unbelievers and thrill the true disciples of the dark! Embrace the black now at the Odium Records YouTube channel.
Reflecting on the intensity of “Purification Through Fire” the band commented:
“This shows another side of the album with its full frontal assault. A no holds barred Black Metal Hymn that is filled to the brim with intensity.”
While in regard to the thematic of the song the band continued:
“This song looks at the subject of fire from 3 different perspectives. If we look at it from a genesis perspective, we see it as the spark of life or the spark of an idea. From an apocalypse perspective, it is the all-consuming fire devouring everything in its path. From a resurrection perspective, it is the inner flame, the Black Flame of spiritual enlightenment when one finds the Source within oneself.
In summary, it shows the transition of first nurturing your Inner Flame to eventually deploy it in order to devour everything that stands in your way with an all-consuming inferno!”
