The Serpent’s Lair

Byron Metcalf , Steve Roach


One of Steve Roach’s more extensive releases at 2 CDs, The Serpent’s Lair is also one of his more notable collaborations, formally credited as well to djembe player/drummer Byron Metcalf with further assistance from percussionist Jeffrey Fayman. Very much in the fusion spirit of Dreamtime Return with its similar blend of acoustic beats and textured electronics, The Serpent’s Lair has its own moody power, with Metcalf’s contributions adding both propulsion and a further air of sonic possibilities to Roach’s ever accomplished synthesizer performances.
