Serpents In Camouflage (1991)

The band’s debut album draws heavily from their musical influences with classic prog bands such as Genesis, Rush and Marillion inspiring their early writing style. Recorded and released in 1992 by SI Music the album was well recieved by critics who, despite pointing out the obvious comparisons, praised the musicianship and song-writing.

This first offering from the up and coming Scottish prog outfit gained them the reputation of being “the band that sounds more like Genesis than Genesis themselves” and was often referred to as “Selling England for a Jester’s Tear!” Re-released by Cyclops Records in 1995 after the demise of SI Music and now re-mastered and re-issued by F2Music as a double CD. The bonus disc contains the band’s original demo which consists of 3 alternative mixes of songs from the debut and the previously unreleased track, “Nightlights”.
