Have you heard of Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent yet? No? Maybe that’s because they don’t exist. The black metal band, whose video “Crushing the Ritual” can be seen after the jump, is actually Rob Zombie and John 5, who wrote the song for Lords of Salem. The song is on the soundtrack, and the band, which consists of “Butcher Olaf,” “Count Gorgann” and “Halvard the Guardian,” actually do a solid job of hitting all the black metal tropes. We never thought we’d hear Rob Zombie and blast beats involved. The song’s definitely lo-fi enough to pass for black metal, and their logo’s sure illegible enough. In fact, the only hint that it might not be a long-unearthed black metal band is that the video’s produced a little too well. Check the song out below.
