Headless is the debut album from Serpent Servant Slave, the newest group assembled by Jesse Smith (Zao, Gods, Jesse Smith & The Holy Ghost). Formed near the end of the line for The Holy Ghost, Smith began to explore different instrumentation and took on a collaboration with Breyer White...and Serpent Servant Slave was born.
Headless finds the duo exploring elements of electronica and alt-rock, blending it with some not-so-subtle gothic undertones and - at times - tipping their toes into an almost industrial-like sound. While the album themes are rather dark, they are also melodious and harmonic. Simply put, these songs have killer hooks that get stuck in your head with a constant throbbing beat that will keep your toes tapping along.
The first pressing of the vinyl version of Headless is limited to roughly 300 copies, and they are pressed on heavyweight, virgin vinyl. The color variants for this run are stark black & white to align with the album artwork and each copy comes with an 8 page 12x12" booklet complete with additional artwork from Unseen Hues.
