More from this Band



LIMITED BLACK VINYL 2LP (NON RETURNABLE) IN STOUGHTON GATEFOLD JACKET NOW PRESELLING. Salt Lake City-based heavy rock duo Eagle Twins' sophomore lp is finally upon us! Once again, they have created a true masterpiece that will devastate forward-thinking riff-seekers everywhere! Highly anticipated follow-up to 2009s critically acclaimed The Unkindness of Crows (LORD196). Eagle Twin will be appearing at the Power of the Riff Fest in Los Angeles, 8/14/2012, as well as touring the US with Gaza. For fiends of Melvins, Sunn O))), Earth and all things ridiculously heavy. 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). Following a cult split 7" with Night Terror in 2009, Eagle Twin's incredibly potent and unique multi-faceted approach became apparent to the world when their debut album, The Unkindness of Crows, stormed doom and experimental music fans later that year. Over 2009 and 2010, Eagle Twin toured and performed stateside and abroad alongside labelmates Earth, Sunn O))), Pelican, The Accüsed and countless others (in addition to showcasing their live devastation at SXSW, multiple Power of the Riff shows) and more. After receiving enormous support from print and online media outlets worldwide on The Unkindness of Crows, this forthcoming album has only been bridged by a killer split LP Eagle Twin released with the UK's Pombagira in late 2010. Fans worldwide should expect nothing but the best from the new Feather... material.
