Boise, Idaho’s duo WOLVSERPENT formed in 2009, and have been captivating audiences on several continents with their a masterful blend of apocalyptic doom, dark folk, avant-orchestral drone, and blackened, sepulchral ambience. Borne of the duo’s 20+ years of classical training and deep appreciation for the works of composers like Arvo Part, Gyorgy Ligeti, and Krzysztof Penderecki, WOLVSERPENT’s vision combines stringed amplified instruments with a 21st century approach to composition to create works that are dark, emotional, menacing, cinematic, atmospheric, and heartbreakingly beautiful.

Full Bio

2010 saw the release of their debut full-length, Blood Seed, which was met with immense critical acclaim, and quickly sold out of its limited edition pressings. In 2012, the band signed to renowned indie label Relapse Records and unleashed their sophomore full-length, a four-song, forty-minute opus entitled Perigaea Antahkarana. Recorded with producer/engineer Mell Dettmer (Sunn 0))), Boris, Earth) in Seattle and in Idaho at WOLVSERPENT’s home studio, the album features another apocalyptic performance from Blake Green (guitar, vocals, keys) and Brittany McConnell (drums, percussion, violin, viola). The album was released via Relapse Records on September 17, 2013.

Perigaea Antahkarana is deeply haunting and varied, rivaled only in these respects by 2016’s mammoth new composition, Aporia:Kāla:Ananta. The single track EP was released March 4, and spans forty minutes of haunting strings, cavernous atmosphere, and shuddering doom. It demands attention, and the rewards it offers are great; in all of its horror and majesty, Aporia:Kāla:Ananta cements WOLVSERPENT’s status as the future of avant-doom.

“This haunting elegy of maudlin strings and crushing doom is sublime in its beauty, weeping that the end of the world is coming.”The Wire

“Wolvserpent are masters of their craft….allowing this record into your heart is the kind of darkness that heals.”Cvlt Nation

“Wolvserpent invokes a behemoth, two-headed spirit of desolate atmospherics and doom-fueled thunder to be sent lurching and sprawling through the listener’s consciousness.”Forbidden Magazine

“A bastardized mix of Godspeed like post rock, avant drone drift, funeral doom, and glacial black metal buzz.”Aquarius Records
