Since Staff Picking their Of The Flock album in 2013, I had carelessly let In The Company Of Serpents fall off my radar, neglecting their evolution from there and foolishly failing to be on active lookout for their subsequent releases. Seven years later, Lux is smacking me right in the face with a stern reminder to not let that happen again.

Lux is one of the best albums that have seen the light (yay, a pun!) this year. Start listening and commenting.

Probably my sludge AOTY so far. Not getting enough love.

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
You tell em that God's gonna cut em down

So far Regarde Les Hommes Tomber's Ascension is my AOTY and this sounds very close to it. As a matter of fact, it totally beats its debut.

I need more sittings with Lux to get acquainted more nitty-gritty. No one knows it may be my AOTY.

PS: "Lightchild" is such a delicious track.

That one is more black metal than sludge though, I would say. They definitely started off with their debut as more sludge oriented, but they've shifted more to the BM with their more recent material, especially Ascension. Great release regardless.
