Southern California's rising underground rock band SILVER SNAKES' 3rd album "Saboteur" finds the band delving further into a darker side of the human condition. The band continues their evolution of sound by incorporating influences of 90s industrial and elements of doom metal into their post-hardcore sound. The result is cathartic and innovative. Heavy, stabbing riffs crescendo into massive walls of guitars that give way to atmospheric and at times ethereal moments of calm that relay underlying messages of sabotage and deception. Formed in 2011, after vocalist, guitarist and main songwriter Alex Estrada's hardcore/crust band Cathedrals went defunct, SILVER SNAKES started an evolution that has blended his many influences, from Latin singer Lola Beltran to bands like Godflesh and Ministry. So, not surprisingly, "Saboteur," finds Estrada experimenting with samples, synths and beats. "It’s something I have always had an interest in, and it felt like a new challenge." Inspired by two alternative masterpieces: Nine Inch Nail's "The Downward Spiral" and Sleep's cult classic "Dopesmoker", the storyline interwoven with the music of "Saboteur" takes the listener through a pyrrhic victory of someone who, because of their own passions and goals, sabotages and manipulates for their own benefit and soon has to come face to face with the consequences of their actions.
