"Ancient Crypts may be a new name, but this Chilean cult includes scene veterans from such revered bands as Unaussprechlichen Kulten and Invincible Force. Unmistakably South American in its humid, hellish intensity, Ancient Crypt's Devoured by Serpents demo ravages and conquers, defiles and reviles, reverent of the ancient Metal of Death whilst often dragging the decibels down into doom-entrenched muck. Pressed on a pro-printed cassette by Iron Bonehead Productions, Devoured by Serpents is but the opening chapter to a horrible story..."

On this EP the songs show variety in their dynamics of harmony, tempo & time signature. The EP is aimed to draw one into a journey of utter hate, despair & madness. The journey explores a turmoil of spiritual tension: the use of barbaric mid-pace & triplet blasting accompanying demented DM riffs at climactic points; then dropping in tempo towards a slower cacophony. Drugged chords create the guitar filth, which, along with the slow, incantation-like vocals, are rather catchy & fittingly placed. xhrl_
