German Import | The first post-World Serpent release from Sol Invictus is a nod back in the direction to a more earthy folk sound. On this release, Tony Wakeford (guitar, voice, keyboards) is supported by Eric Roger (aka SEVEN PINES, trumpet, recorder, vocals), Gary Parsons (guitar, percussion, vocals), Karl Blake (aka SHOCKHEADED PETERS, bass), Maria Vellanz (violin) and Renée Rosen (violin). Taken from Russian folklore the title track "Steeds For The Devil" concerns suicide while there are the usual happy Tony Wakeford songs, there are two traditional songs getting the Sol Invictus treatment on "Twa Corbies" and "Three Knights Came from the West". Philip Larkin's poem "The North Ship" also becomes the basis for one song. Artwork on this release is from Tor Lundvall, with the first Limited edition coming in a 6 panel luxury digipak.
