Serpent's Embrace is the fourth studio album by the German symphonic black metal band Agathodaimon. It was released 24 August, 2004 through Nuclear Blast records. In 2009 Metal Mind Productions reissued the album as a remastered digipak edition. The reissue is limited to numerated 2000 copies and was digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc.


The album had a more progressive style compared to previous albums. Allmusic described the album as one that "does not play by pre-established black metal rules" and a "genre-busting" LP.
