The Second Coming.
Born in 2007, The Serpent Bearer is a fiercely independent zine focusing on dark esoteric music. The first issue, published in early '08, was the first humble step into the dark with bands like Ignivomous, Jumalhämärä, Thy Serpent, Reverorum ib Malacht, Hammers of Misfortune, Caïna, Wolves in the Throne Room, and Pimentola as my guides.
The past four years have been full of false starts - and bands! - something that I couldn't have imagined in 2007 preparing the maiden issue of TSB. 2009 saw the release of Serpentscope, a collaboration zine by A. Klemi of Kaleidoscope and yours truly. Autopsy, Cauldron Black Ram, Daniel Ekeroth, Diocletian, Embrace of Thorns, Grave Miasma, Hooded Menace, Invidious, Portal, Rippikoulu, Sepulchral Aura, Teitanblood, and I think you got the point.
Work for the second issue of The Serpent Bearer is but halfway done, but the tunnel at the end of the light is finally starting to take shape. Meet you on the other side!
