Editorial Reviews

Ask Still Remains, the young Grand Rapids, MI band, about what the last two years have been like and they'll begin by telling you how much they've grown as people and musicians. I've grown up a lot, explains vocalist T.J. Miller. I feel like I've come into my own as a songwriter. I haven't been afraid to write about things that I might have only alluded to on the last record. My lyrics have always been personal, but the new stuff is deeper, subjects I needed to and wanted to get out. Produced by Steve Evetts (Story Of The Year, Lifetime, Saves The Day) and mixed by Logan Mader (ex-Machine Head, ex-Soulfly guitars), The Serpent palatably demonstrates the culmination of the last two years of Still Remains' efforts and experiences. With a new line-up intact, Still Remains have written their best music to date. While songs like 'Stay Captive' and 'Dancing With The Enemy' showcase the band's versatility and musical growth towards the more alternative, songs like 'The Wax Walls Of An Empty Room' confirm that the band will continue to hold their footing within the metal community.

Customer Reviews

I really am just astonished that this band would jump on the "sell out" bandwaggon.

Hopefully they will get their head out of their.... sorry guys, I just wished for something better from you.
Ian Smith
This one dares to step outside the metalcore realm however but it seems to be a step in the wrong direction.

A good portion of the reviews for this CD are way off! Does a band these days have to scream like maniacs every song to satifsy their un-appreciative "metalcore" fans? This is a sound, hard rockin', great effort from Still Remains. Geez, let these guys get creative if they want!

Some spots are heavy, some spots are softer and more melodic. I loved their 1st album, and I also love this one. No matter which style their music slips into, there's always a certain 'groovability' to their tracks.

What I mean is this: I've listened to this album since it came out, at least a few times a week. Guess what? I still find myself singing along in my head and bobbing my head a little bit while it's playing. I don't even notice it or feel like it's gotten 'old' because of how many times I've heard it. This also holds true for their first album, although you may want this one instead if you prefer your music with less screaming lyrics.

PS - Hope you like this album because it's the last one from them you'll see. :(

The Serpent is Still Remains' sophomore album and the follow- up to their 2005 album Of Love and Lunacy. It takes the album's hard-hitting metalcore sound which, for many fans, defined Still Remains, and expands upon it, bringing in elements of hard and soft rock, pop, and more metal.

The opening title track is a two minute instrumental, which begins with the keyboards that accentuate and define Still Remains, and introduces guitar and an exciting and suspenseful drum beat which set the listener up for the rest of the album. The Wax Walls of an Empty Room is a heavy song with a melodic chorus throughout, Stay Captive (the first single) is a hard rock song with a metalcore-inspired breakdown, and Anemia in Your Sheets takes thrash riffs and adds melodic interludes to round out the beginning of the album. The next track, Maria, is a soft song which builds into an emotional ending.

Dropped from the Cherry Tree is a fast and exciting headbanging song, which I believe really brings out the best of all the heavy aspects of Still Remains. The next four songs, Dancing with the Enemy, The River Song, Sleepless Nights Alone, and An Undesired Reunion set a more pop-inspired tone, with all but The River Song being completely devoid of vocalist TJ Miller's signature screaming. Avalanche, the lyrics inspired by role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII, is one of the heaviest songs Still Remains has ever written, and brings the album to a close.

Fans of hard rock and heavy metal, with an open mind for music inspired by other genres would do well to check this album out. It's different from Of Love and Lunacy, but great in its own way, and still retains the heavy metalcore aspect Still Remains' fans have come to know and love.

ok, I think this cd is pretty good. I haven't heard Of Love and Lunacy besides a couple of songs (and those are ok too). but yeah, this album has some pretty good songs and some fillers.

This album kind of sounds like a mix between Underoath's "They're Only Chasing Safety" and Haste the Day's "Pressure the Hinges", with a lot of extra keyboards thrown in (if you don't like keyboards with your metalcore, stay away from this album!). Another thing I like about this is the guitar solos. A lot of bands these days don't use guitar solos, or when they do, they're like 5 seconds long, but Still Remains uses them, and they're pretty good at them.

Here's my ratings of the songs:

1. The Serpent 10/10 ok, this is like my favorite album intro I've ever heard! Seriously, I feel kind of weird rating an intro (by the way, it's rated compared to other intros, not to other songs), but this is really good. I sometimes even listen to this without listening to the next song!

2. The Wax Walls of an Empty Room 7/10 I'm a pretty strict reviewer I guess, so even though I only gave this song seven out of ten, it's still a decent song. (remember 7 out of 10 means it's better than 70% of everything else out there). It sounds kind of like a normal metalcore song, but with extra keyboards (almost always a plus in my opinion) and a cool guitar solo.

3. Stay Captive 8/10 If you're going to show somebody what Still Remains sounds like (unless they're into really hard music) show them this song. I was blown away the first time I listened to this song. It has a really good intro and cool keyboards, the only problem was it got old kind of fast. and by the way, there is no screaming in this song.

4. Anemia in Your Sheets 10/10 BEST SONG ON THE CD!

Most of these reviews are way off track. One or two stars because the music isn't filled with screams? Accusing the band of using the thank you section of the liner notes as a media ploy?! Please, get over yourselves. This band has far from sold out. The Worst is Yet to Come and White Walls both had melodic singing and were two of the best songs from Of Love and Lunacy. If anything they've simply built off those songs. Wax Walls, Anemia, Dropped from the Cherry Tree, The River Song, and Avalanche should more than please any fan of previous album. Avalanche is an excellent song, which starts out brutal with vocals more extreme than anything on the previous full length and EP. The brutality keeps up for a couple minutes straight, then mellows out with some melodic lead guitar, and further transitions into a great acoustic passage to end it. A perfect album closer. Proving that, more than a cliche, they have grown as musicians.

The other group of songs, those with dominant, or only, clean vocals, if not listened to with a "scenester" mentality are some of the best tracks on the album. Stay Captive and Dance with the Enemy both maintain a heavy sound and great energy, even without the growls and screams. I'll agree Maria might be a little too mellow but it progressively builds up to a harder sound with some extreme vocals and is a well done song. The new keyboardist proves he more than fills the role of his predecessor here. Throughout the album the keys are dominant and add atmosphere and energy (Killer 80's vibe on Dance with the Enemy) to the songs. They're never a distraction.
