Estrus is taken from Speed Of Snakes’ debut LP which will be released on Saturday
Speed of Snakes are one part BATS and one part Adebisi Shank. Many years in the making, their self-titled debut will finally be released next Saturday, St Patrick’s Day*.
On the first day, 88 trillion years ago, the great snake Metatraxium created the Universe, the Earth and all the life upon it. Each species birthed from a succession of fantastic and horrifying eggs. The last unhatched egg of Metatraxium, found in 8041 BD* by Portuguese alchemists, was kept safe for thousands of years by, among others, the infamous serpent-cult, Delta Expelletrax, before hatching on a pleasant June day at 1:48 in the afternoon. Out stepped the cryptic figure of David Optic, messianic snake-prince of Metatraxium. Lord of vibration, port of mutation, bird-eater and future-seer. Come to save the wretched mammals squirming in their boxes. Issuing from his crotch were twin metal snakes (X and Y**), writhing and coiling at various speeds and generating curious sound waves. These are those sound waves.
