GENERATION OF VIPERS
HOWL AND FILTH
TRANSLATION LOSS

Featuring members of US Christmas and A Storm of Light, Knoxville, TN based trio Generation of Vipers dole out dollops of downtuned and depressive post-metal on their latest aptly titled endeavor HOWL AND FILTH. This lumbering six-track affair bludgeons with sludge metal heft and hypnotic rhythmic punishment, creating rounds of deliberately placed feedback and delay driven depravity (“The Misery Coil”). Barreling over listeners with waves of tribal percussion, far away vocal growls, and seismic bass and guitars building thick riff after thick riff before cooling off towards the atmospheric side of the spectrum (“Ritual”), this Kurt Ballou-produced album administers a raw and primal blast of soulful and crushing heaviness that fits snugly between Isis, Tool, and Neurosis by meshing both the forward-thinking and unrelenting elements from the modern metal realm. -Mike SOS
