Love at first bass line.
Vipers are known for extreme fangs and an aggressive attack that follows its prey as they become incapacitated by the slow-acting venom.
The Deadly Vipers’ music hits you quick and hard from the get-go, though it has more of a mosh-inducing effect than an immobilizing one. The bass comes thudding ominously into the first track of their Cataclysmic Events EP (available on cassette via King Pizza Records*) to be met with much guitar shredding and vocals reminiscent of punk predecessors. While the vocals remain pretty squarely in the realm of punk, the band’s sound moves seamlessly across genres, incorporating doom-metal-style riffs, perfectly placed blast beats and adds a few swirling psych-y breakdowns in “Earth Girls Are Easy.”
Give them a listen (or many) below.
*King Pizza Records is also awesome.
