Eagle Twin Confirms New LP "The Feather Tipped the Serpent’s Scale" Details

Southern Lord has confirmed that the second full-length from Salt Lake City-based duo Eagle Twin, "The Feather Tipped the Serpent’s Scale," will be released via deluxe digipak and digital download in North America on August 28th, 2012, with a 2xLP version to follow several weeks later. The following press release was issued about the album:

"The Feather Tipped the Serpent's Scale, picks up right where the Eagle Twin's acclaimed 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) 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 fifty minutes of the band's most mammoth material to date."

1. Ballad of Job Cain Part I
2. Ballad of Job Cain Part II

4. Snake Hymn

6. It Came to Pass the Snakes Became Mighty Antlers
7. Epilogue, Crow's Theology
