Byzantine: And They Shall Take Up Serpents

Sound — 8
I think this album is amazing and original. I suppose it can be considered as heavy metal. Though, I'm not to sure. Anyway, I love the guitar riffs and the lyrics. The whole band is just amazing. If youre a fan of metal or heavy metal, death metal etc, I highly recommend this album. Its their newest album and not too many people know who they are. Amazing.

I really like the lyrics. They go well with the music because the lyrics are a little angry and informative and their music is heavy as well. I think the singer is great. He kind of screams, but he knows his limits, I think.

Overall Impression — 10
I couldn't find the album that they put out before this. I'm sure it's great as well. The most impressive song (to me) I think is Red Neck War or Ancestry Of The Antichrist. I love how Byzantine isn't trying to be like every other heavy metal band out there. Or any other band. If my CD were stolen I'd cry, be angry, and buy it again. I definitely think it's worth it.
