Eagle Twin - The Unkindness of Crows 2xLP

Goddammit. I placed an order at SL about 4 days ago, and here they go and put another record up for sale. And not just any record, it's the goddamn Eagle Twin record, definitely one of the best things they've released lately - well, in my book at least.

If you haven't checked out "The Unkindness Of Crows" yet, here's some info about the band which will make you want to check them out asap: "Densley was the musical visionary and leader of the legendary Jazz, Prog, Rock, Metal, Hardcore group Iceburn from 1991-2001. In order to disseminate his majestic and mountainous riffs in the present day he enlisted massively behemoth skinsman Tyler Smith. The drums are not only a driving force that efficiently steam rolls over you they conjure a repetitious mantra that is eerily infectious. The riffs and music definitely have familiar reference points (Caspar Brotzmann Massaker,Earth, sunn 0))), Melvins etc..) but are crafted in a way that stands miles beyond the others. “The Unkindness of Crows” was recorded to tape in Seattle by Randall Dunn (earth, sunn 0))), Kinski, Ascend). Beautifully packaged in a digi-pac with original artwork from Gentry, Sri Whipple and others. Designed by Stephen O’Malley"

For $17 you get the 2xLP (no pressing information yet), for 29$ it comes with a shirt. The vinyl version is supposed to have 2 bonus tracks compared to the digital version. So, don't sit on this, and get if from The Lord
