Belgian black metal horde SERPENTS OATH are releasing a haunting new video for the track ‘Leviathan Speaks’, taken of their recently announced debut album ‘Nihil’, which will be released on December 4th through Soulseller Records (GORGOROTH, ANCIENT,..).

The band comments on the song: “Leviathan Speaks refers to the path of enlightenment where you strive to be touch with your innermost Self, the ritual process that is called awakening the Dragon. The song describes the moment from the Dragon’s (Leviathan) point of view, when it speaks in order to allow the Dragon to move through you and in that moment become a living God.”
“In the video – designed by Aimed & Framed – this is represented in the 4 elements: water (represented by blood), air (represented by smoke), earth and fire coming together. The fire element is used a lot more as it signifies lighting the internal fire. The skull in the video is a symbol of Death, however not Death as the destroyer of life but as the carrier of transformation”, says vocalist Tes Re Oth.
The opus was mixed & mastered at the renowned Stage One Studio with Andy Classen (BELPHEGOR, LEGION OF THE DAMNED). The amazing artwork came courtesy of Néstor Avalos, known for his work for bands like DARK FUNERAL & BLOODBATH.
