Eagle Twin The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale

Eagle Twin The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale
It must be all that sodium in the water down in Salt Lake City because the bands that come out of the Utah metropolis never disappoint, in terms of creating music that's fresh and unique, and Eagle Twin are no exception. The duo's second full-length, The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale, is an odd one, in the best way possible, as Eagle Twin are working on a completely different level than any other spaced-out, doomy sludge act. Dense, unrelenting riffs make up The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale, with long tracks that build upon themselves slowly and steadily. Split into two parts, "Ballad of Job Cain" features disjointed rhythms and different structures that come together in unison as it seamlessly transitions to its second part, containing riffs that are abundantly dark and classically heavy. The record carries on in this style and it's amazingly impressive that this wall of huge sound is created by only two people: singer/guitarist Gentry Densley and drummer Tyler Smith. Also notable is that the concept behind The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale picks up where the duo's debut, The Unkindness of Crows, left off ― something about the crows turning into snakes and all the mythic/symbolic jazz that goes along with the creature. It's pretty cool for those into the whole concept thing. (Southern Lord)
