Salt Lake City-based duo Eagle Twin will release the long-awaited third LP "The Thundering Heard (Songs Of Hoof And Horn)" on March 30th via Southern Lord.
Eagle Twin's commanding sound delivers like a tectonic force, where doom and blues collide. Gentry Densley's dominating low-end vocal tone is like an instrument in itself, rumbling alongside towering riffs, and Tyler Smith's powerful rhythmic propulsion. It is a compelling combination, particularly when you add melodious bluesy romp to the equation.
Equally prevailing are the stories that shape Eagle Twin's musical output, drawing upon folklore, and also strongly informed by recent happenings in the world. Observing our relationship to nature, and the band's own surroundings in the dead salt seas of Utah are themes that feature frequently across the musical canon. "The Thundering Heard" continues where the previous album "The Feather Tipped The Serpent's Scale" ended.
In the band's own words, "As the great snake grew giant fractal antlers of snakes and turned in upon itself creating a new world, the mountains rise, and the antlers stab through like trees across the landscape. The record begins with the hoofed and horned animals of our world running from mountains and forests on fire. Eerily harkening to the recent events in California and the massive devastation by fire across the land."
Southern Lord will release The Thundering Heard on LP, CD, and digital formats. Audio previews, pre-order info, tour dates, and more on the album to follow in the weeks ahead.
The track listing is:
1. Quanah Un Rama
2. Elk Wolfv Hymn
3. Heavy Hoof
4. Antlers Of Lightning
