Snake The Cross The Crown

Mander Salis

Equal Vision 98

Released on August 24, 2004


Huntsville, AL isn't a likely place for musical dreams to spawn. But nestled there were a group of friends, including two brothers with an inclination to make music. It became obvious to them that Huntsville, AL wasn't the inspiration they needed, so they packed their bags and headed west to Santa Barbara, CA. And so began The Snake The Cross The Crown. After releasing their debut EP, Like A Moth Before A Flame, on Waste Of Time Records, the band joined the Equal Vision Records roster in early 2004. Family members, friends, and band-mates, The Snake The Cross The Crown are built around a tight-knit bond and the passion to make music. While some bands become tunnel-visioned on a sound that will bring them instant popularity, The Snake The Cross The Crown find themselves constantly evolving. Mander Salis is both accessible and challenging, complex and elementary. With the release of Mander Salis the band shows a maturity and passion well beyond their years while bringing with them the atmospheric elements that made their outstanding debut such a success.

I had to come and redeem this CD after the pasting it's recieved below. This is one of my favorite albums of the last few years. Beautiful country-influenced indie rock with some nice little electronica here and there. I know that this CD was very anticipated, but got a lot of mixed reviews. Ultimately, I think it took a lot of people by surprise, it's not the emo/"scene" sort of album that you might have expected them to make after their "Moth Before A Flame" EP. I would urge anyone who was initially disappointed with this album to give it another chance, because it'll grow on you like a cyst. Stunning.

If you're a fan of As Tall As Lions, make sure you check this band out (and vice versa).

I heard the MP3 and thought this would be a pretty good CD...I was wrong. Most of the songs are extremely bland overall, and most of the acoustic tracks are just downright terrible. There are only about 3 or 4 good songs on this CD, and it came with a free shirt since I preordered it so I'll give it 2 stars.
