The Feather Tipped The Serpent's Scale, picks up right where Eagle Twin's 2009-released 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 its various mythic and symbolic incarnations. Ultimately the great ancestral snake is transformed from its lowly beginnings back into a bird soaring upon the thermals. As with The Unkindness Of Crows, guitarist Gentry Densley (ex-ICEBURN) and drummer Tyler Smith (ex-FORM OF ROCKET) recorded The Feather Tipped The Serpent's Scale with Randall Dunn at London Bridge Studio, the finished product bellowing with over 50 minutes of the band's most mammoth material to date.
The Feather Tipped The Serpent's Scale tracklisting:
'Ballad Of Job Cain Part I'
'Ballad Of Job Cain Part II'
'It Came To Pass The Snakes Became Mighty Antlers'
'Epilogue, Crow's Theology'
