play raw, 90's influenced post harcore/rock. Pictures of a Floating World,
their debut released in August of 2011, is a tribute to free thinking -- focusing on societal themes and individuality. It showcases glimpses of rock experimentalists At the Drive In and Fugazi, both major influences on the Snakes' sound.
Form and Fate
are an instrumental post rock band from SF. The name was derived from the process through which a lake is born; a tribute to the turbulent ways in which new landscapes are formed, sometimes through dramatic and violent upheaval, sometimes through the simple, slow passing of time. Form And Fate's brand of post rock is epic, bleak, melodic and complex. With three guitarists in the group they are able to build multiple melodic layers and they incorporate a variety of different instruments in their music like violin, cello and trombone. Form and Fate has drawn comparisons to Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai.
Death Valley High
is where gnashing hard rock and death pop converge. Fuse distorted guitar riffs over dance-punk beats and you'll have Death Valley High: the mixtape to a doomsday dance party.
