Founded in late 2011 by old friends David Purvis, Oran McGuckin and Charlie Farrell. After other bands didn't work out that we were in, we decided to form a band together. After trying out members such as Gareth Dobbin and Josh Walls and that not working out we kept the search going for a Guitar Player and Singer. In September of 2011 Oran joined Armagh Tech to do Music Technology where he met Graham McKinstry. Graham straight away told Oran he played guitar and that if we needa a guitar player he would be on for it. After hearing Graham play Oran had to get on to the rest of the guys. So we got Graham over for a Jam..
Straight away he knew we needed him after he ripped the shit outta Thrasher by Evile and he caught onto our pre existing riffs. We got practicing and now we're building our live set up more and more. After a few months in the band David decided he was going to leave the band due to personal reasons. As a result we needed a guitar player, whilst we searched David was kind enough to help us out and perform the upcoming gigs we had already scheduled. During that time we came across Connla Mullan, after getting Connla over and showing him the tunes we decided he was the one to take David's place, so now coming into 2013 Serpent will hopefully keep writing originals,gigging and we hope to be doing it for a long time!
