I was slightly underwhelmed with marrow but need to give it a few more listens before trying this one out

If Marrow underwhelmed you, you'll probably be underwhelmed by this too. Marrow is about 100x more exciting than this.

Digging: Flying Lotus - You're Dead!

I still don't know how I feel about the more aggressive black metal approach they took with Marrow so if this is more post-rocky like their first three I'd probably prefer this

haha thanks, the other one looked a little too disturbing when it was that small and you couldn't quite tell what was going on 0_o

It's a grower.
If the first song had been left out, I'd probably enjoy this a lot more.
It's such a weak opener.

A departure from Marrow of the Spirit, Serpent displays overall improved songwriting and production but fewer standout moments that made Marrow above average. While it has its moments, the relentless consistency gets tiresome when there is so little to grasp emotionally. The interludes are serviceable, and the drumming is integrated much better into the music than on Marrow. There are unfortunately no clean singing, and not much vocals overall. Vales Beyond Dimension is an album highlight 3.3/5

Ashes is best even if it gets a little underwhelming after Waves
