One year after their latest release, the Greek heavy metallers Serpent Lord (GR) release a new single, entitled “The Gospel of Judas”. The song is an introduction to a new chapter for the band, which will come with their upcoming album. 

As the band states: “The Gospel of Judas” is inspired by the Apocrypha Gospel of Judas, which was found and given to publicity for the first time in 2006. Serpent Lord (GR) presents a different approach on Judas’ character, not as a traitor but as Christ’s favorite student. Judas executes the Divine Plan, in order to lead Christ to his resurrection. However, Judas hangs himself because he felt guilty, which shows, according to the band, that the he was manipulated by God and that’s why he is remembered as a traitor and not as a savior, as he should be.

“The Gospel of Judas” was released on December 15th along with a lyric video. The song was recorded during the summer of 2020 at Infected Studios, with Nash Makridis participating as a session drummer.

Line up:

Marios Arikas – vocals

George Terzitanos – rhythm/lead guitars/back vocals

Konstantinos Sotirelis – bass/back vocals

Lazaros Bouroutzoglou – rhythm/lead guitars

Nash Makridis – drums (session)
