In an unprecedented move, Serpents U.S. have taken to their social media accounts today, to change their long-hailed title of being one of the “founding fathers of Blackened Deathcore”; to changing the band’s genre, into something a lot of people were left truly confused about–Dionysian music. The band took to their social media to clarify the change:

“We’re going to touch base on one of the most frequently asked questions that we’re going to get about the band’s new genre–Dionysian music.

And to be clear, it’s going to be very hard to sum this big of an idea up via a social media post, but we’ll try…

So.
Apollo and Dionysus were gods in ancient Greek religion. More to the point, they were both gods in the Ancient Greek pantheon, despite representing nearly opposing values and orientations.

Apollo was the god of light, reason, harmony, balance and prophesy; while Dionysus was the god of wine, revelry, ecstatic emotion and tragedy. ‘Apollonian‘ and ‘Dionysian‘ were terms used by Friedrich Nietzsche in ‘The Birth of Tragedy’ to designate these two central principles in Greek culture.


Nietzsche‘s Apollonianism and Dionysianism are the philosophies in which he has presented a serious concept of two forces that prevalent in the human AND artistic world. Wherein Nietzsche characterized ‘Dionysian‘ as such: ‘Drunkenness and madness are Dionysian. All forms of enthusiasm and ecstasy are Dionysian. Music is the most Dionysian of the arts, since it appeals directly to man’s instinctive, chaotic emotions and not to his formally reasoning mind.

Being the band that we are, and what inspires our music, we felt like this was the best representation.

An ode to the basics, so to speak…”
