Interviews About Albums: Sea Of Snakes - The Serpent And The Lamb (2022)

In this new interview, we sat down with the American Stoner Metal band Sea Of Snakes to ask some questions about their new album "The Serpent And The Lamb"

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

The new album is a definitive answer as to who we are. Our first ep had a different singer. Jason joined us shortly after releasing the ep. We have grown over the past year and a half as a band and this is exactly who we are now as a band. The album is fast, heavy, and doomy.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

The meaning is of course like anything artistic, open to interpretation. The direct name came from the lyrics to the last song on the album “The Ritual “. I think it's kind of a metaphor for the serpent representing satan and the lamb symbolic of something sacrificial.

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

I (Jim) wrote 7 songs on the album and Jason wrote the lyrics to 3. Demon seed was originally written and recorded before Jason joined us. We re-did the guitar tracks and Jason rewrote the lyrics. We really liked the song but felt his lyrics suited the song better.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

Hmmm… if I had to be on a deserted island the rest of my life and only listen to one of the songs? Hmm…probably Start a War. It's the opener and it has really good energy.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is what it is?

There is no particular message in the album. The album touches on a wide range of topics… social issues, drug addiction, the occult, depression, and even aliens and the apocalypse. A little bit of everything that interests us or that has shaped who we are.

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

Right now I'm really liking the lyrics to Third Kind. It's a song about being abducted by aliens. Being brought aboard and operated on by malevolent creatures. All the recent footage about aliens from the government had made my intrigue even more. I like the line I scream without a sound. Seeing all the movies about aliens being telepathic is what inspired the idea. Like being abducted and not able to speak but spoken to telepathically. Real Twilight zone kinda stuff

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

My inspiration is always the same stuff. I don't listen to a lot of new music. I find myself always listening to the same … Down, CoC, Pentagram, MetalChurch, Slayer, and of course Black Sabbath. Sabbath consumes about 75% of my listening time.

8. Something to add?

I personally id like to thank my mother. She always supported the band. Even letting us play ungodly loud in the basement in the early days. She was struggling with cancer during the recording and sadly passed before it was released. If it wasn’t for her love and support over the years this album wouldn’t have been possible. This one is dedicated to her. Love you, mom. Rip
