Nekromant artist

Formed back in 2011 by Mattias Ottosson and Adam Lundqvist, the goal for Serpent was not difficult to understand. Sick and tired of both the new-"metal" scene and the overly pretentious retrohipsters, the boys commenced in a series of jamming/drinking sessions in the metropolis Mjölby, located in the east part of Sweden. Playing hard rock with a monstrously heavy, blues-laced beat was the goal then, and it still is. Although these sessions resulted in both a full album and an EP, it was not until they joined forces with Jocke Olsson, a hard-hitting drummer with roots in both heavy metal and other types of music, that the powertrio we now call Serpent was born. The year was 2013 and the band had now relocated to Vänersborg, since all three was born and raised there. The chemistry was obvious. The first tracks of what would become the album "Nekromant" started to take form, as well as the gritty, honest and heavy sound of the trio. During the fall of 2013 Serpent conducted their first live gigs, and soon many more followed. After many chaotic gig-weekends (and a few broken bones) the trio had become a powerful live act with solid tracks and a confident sound. A new album was needed. In the spring of 2015, Serpent along with their trusted sound engineer Charlie Johansson entered Studio N3 in Trollhättan, Sweden. A couple of days later Nekromant saw the light of day for the first time, a collection of the best and most powerful songs the trio had written during their time so far. A collaboration with Transubstans Records was initiated and the band is now more ready than ever to bring their heavy blues-metal out to the people. In the end of 2016, the band changed their name into Nekromant
