Society of the Silver Cross
Singles and EPs
Seattle band Society of the Silver Cross's debut album '1 Verse' is an epic musical journey crossing over to mystical landscapes and otherworldly terrains, while playing with concepts of life and death, shadows and light and going beyond the veil. Songwriters Joe Reineke and Karyn Gold-Reineke score lush, bombastic and ethereal layers of instrumentation with chant-like vocals at times. Their unique songwriting style is inspired by the textures and melodies of India, blending an ode to hypnosis with a touch of goth and twisted americana. The sound has been described as haunting, gothic graceland and even “yogic metal”. The 405 said that “1 Verse” is
“One of the year's most unique and compelling debuts”.
