"Like the rest of the guys I am very pleased to be associated with such a renowned record company (Frontiers Records)", said Moody. "We've really enjoyed writing and recording the new album and look forward to a successful future alliance."
"The songs on our debut album reflect the kind of music that the members of the band want to play, which is melodic rock with a blues influence", adds Murray. "Each of us has played many different styles of music, and our influences are varied, but Snakecharmer originally came together to play mainly early Whitesnake songs, so that is our starting point.
"There wasn't a deliberate plan to write songs in a particular style; each song on the album started as a basic idea by one or two band members, and if the other guys were enthusiastic about the idea, then the song would be worked up into a finished song."
