Night Viper premiere new track at Noisey - Music By Vice


Today, heavy metal warlords Night Viper premiere the new track "The Hammer" at heavily trafficked tastemakers Noisey - Music By Vice. The track hails from the band's self-titled debut album, set for international release on December 4th via Svart Records. Night Viper are a hot-rockin' quartet from Gothenburg, Sweden. The first two ingredients in the Viper pie were Sofie Lee Johansson and Tom Sutton (Horisont, The Order Of Israfel, ex-Church Of Misery). As soon as they met, the chemistry started flying and some pure fist-banging heavy metal demos were thrown down. They were joined briefly by Sven Nilsson from Antichrist on drums as well as a few others on guitar and bass, but it was once swing master Jonna Karlsson was behind the kit that things started really moving. The folk-tastic stylings of Emil Ridderstolpe on guitar and the fast fingers of Ruben Åhlander Persson (Miasmal) on bass completed the lineup. They played their first show in Summer 2014, and since then have played at Heavy Days In Doomtown, Muskelrock and Geggan festivals to great success, along with gigs throughout Sweden. This month marks their first European tour, with shows in Germany, Denmark and The Czech Republic with good friends Demon Head. They have released a single through Svart Records, and are again working with the label for the release of Night Viper, set to be released on CD, LP, and digital formats. Plans are already underway for European tours and festival appearances throughout 2016, but in the meantime, hear the sound of "The Hammer" exclusively here, courtesy of Noisey - Music By Vice.

"We love it," says guitarist Tom Sutton of Night Viper. "We recorded all the basic tracks live together, and I think you can really hear the excitement in the room. It's very organic-sounding, and will remind people of the heavy metal classics they love, while still being very current and very unique. It's not a tribute to any era in any way. There's elements of Kill 'em All-era Metallica, Judas Priest, Entombed, and the more metal side of Motörhead, along with some Pentagram or Coven-type spookiness. This is just a pure and honest representation of how we sound. Each song really has its own personality, and the melodies are super-catchy. The differences in style and influences between the two guitarists, Emil and I, give the album a lot of texture, I think. If there's a solo that sounds like cat with its tail on fire, that's me, and if there's something with a beautiful twirling melody to it, that's probably Emil. Ruben sounds totally thumping on bass, and Jonna plays with a swing that isn't heard in metal much these days. And for those who haven't heard Sofie Lee sing yet, you really are in for a treat. We can't wait for people to hear it. There will be bangovers!" Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
