Entitled, 'The Feather Tipped The Serpent's Scale', the new Eagle Twin opus picks up right where the band's acclaimed debut lp, 'The Unkindness of Crows', left off. In this installment, the crows documented in the first album have battled the sun and were burned back down to earth as black snakes, the concept of the album continuing mainly on the snake and it's various mythic and symbolic incarnations. Ultimately, the great ancestral snake is transformed from its lowly beginnings back into a bird soaring upon the thermals. Recorded with Randall Dunn at london bridge studio (as with the first album), the record boasts some of the most mesmerizing and monstrous riff transformations from eagle twin to date. Eagle Twin merges the talents of guitarist gentry densley (of legendary post-hardcore / jazz icons, Iceburn) with the thunderous percussion of Tyler Smith (formerly of Form of Rocket).
