Music videos[edit]

The Crimson Armada released a video for the song "The Serpents Tongue", produced by Thunder Down. The video begins with the band playing inside a home then going to a woman sorting photos. Meanwhile, a member of the 82nd Airborne wanders in Normandy during WWII, he is ambushed by German soldiers and shot. After a few more scenes of the band, the man begins to read a letter, he then dies. At that time the woman then begins to sprout angel wings. She then appears with the soldier in Normandy. She touches him and his eyes open again as she smiles. The video ends with her putting his photo (which used to have the eyes covered) down into a pile with other photos.[6]
