Los Angeles’ dark-rock band Silver Snakes has teamed today with RevolverMag.com to debut their cover of Ministry’s cult favorite song “Burning Inside.” The song is featured on the band’s new EP called Scathe, which will be released tomorrow with Evil Ink Records.
“The idea to cover Ministry came up early on. Those guys are from a time where music wasn’t about playing it safe and that is a mindset I’d love to see make a return. Burning Inside seemed like a perfect, chaotic song we could pull off as a cover but when it came down to it, the music lent itself to a change of pace in our writing style. We slowed it down and piled on layer after layer of filth and desperation. Really hope we make uncle Al proud with this one.” – Alex Estrada (vocals)
Silver Snakes’ new record Scathe pays tribute to bands that have inspired and influenced their sound and tastes over the years, including covers of tracks by Duran Duran, Garbage and Ministry. The record also features a new original song “Follow Your Lead” and a remix of their song “Charmer” (Nexialist X L.A. Wombat Remix).
“The idea behind Scathe was to be a bridge between our last release, Saboteur, and the direction we have been moving in while writing new material. We chose three different songs by artists that have had influence on us over the years, “Come Undone” by Duran Duran, “#1 Crush” by Garbage, and “Burning Inside” by Ministry. Along with these songs we have included a brand new track, Follow Your Lead, as well as a Remix of the song “Charmer” off of our previous album. Scathe was arranged and self produced in the summer of 2017 in various hotel rooms while on tour as well as The Earth Capital in Los Angeles, CA. It was then Mastered by Greg Reely (Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly). We have already begun work on a new full length recording to be released some time in 2018. We’ll see you soon.” – Alex Estrada (vocals)
