Serotonin - Partners in Grime present:
One year after their previous release “Decay”, Serotonin return
with their latest endeavour. With the apocalypse right around
the corner, the time has come to unleash their debut full-length
“Antiphon”, first of a twin-release.
The first half of a two-CD concept, “Antiphon” showcases
Serotonin in full glory. Featuring a wide range of raw emotions
and raging energy, it moves from blistering blasts to slithering
sludge within the ragged confines of the album boundaries. The
scope of the well-honed lyrics crosses such limitations. Each of
the observations made within finds a countervoice in its
partnered song, reacting and presenting a differing point of view.
Carrying over into the layout itself, the Antiphon concept can be
found in its symbolism and citations strewn throughout.
Taking inspiration from the depths of human depravity and
stupidity, Serotonin model this disgust and disdain into a wide
range of songs. Within their distinct and unique sound, based on
black and death metal, other musical styles often creep up.
Taking cues from industrial or doom even odd sounds, such as a
slide guitar or putting a cello bow to the electric bass guitar make
Having done some gigs as a two-piece led to a decreased
interest in attracting more band members, purely for live
purposes. As each of the gigs was a direct result of the previous
one, it strengthened Serotonin in their conviction that their
current line-up is in no way impeding their aggressive stance
nor their presence on stage.
Currently, Serotonin’s immediate plans consist of promoting
Antiphon through more live appearances. One of the things they
are looking forward to in particular is finalising the standing
invitation to Ireland. Additionally, the follow-up to Antiphon
is taking shape and its outlines are already starting to appear
through the hazes of time.
