Do you love NWOBHM? Kill ’em All-era Metallica? Judas Priest? The more metal side of Motörhead? Even Pentagram or Coven-type spookiness? Then look no further. Sweden‘s Night Viper is the band for you.
Though Night Viper is a brand-new band, these hot-rockin’ heavy metal obsessives boast an impressive pedigree – former Church of Misery guitarist Tom Sutton, along with current members of Miasmal among others, make up a relentless onslaught for Sophie Lee Johansson‘s commanding pipes. Night Viper‘s glancing heavy metal will remind you of the classics, while still being very current, and sporting a catchy and very honest vibe to boot.
With the release of their debut full-length slated for release on December 4 through Svart Records, it’s a given that Night Viper will slay live at Roadburn 2016 on Friday, April 15 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Their pure, fist-banging heavy metal will be undeniable!
Roadburn Festival takes place between 14 – 17 April 2016 at the 013 venue, in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are on sale!

Lovingly pinched from Metal Bandcamp: Botanist‘s third full length, Doom in Bloom, included a second disc called Allies, featuring collaborations with other musicians. Those songs stood in stark contrast with Otrebor‘s usual one-man, blackened hammered-dulcimer show. One of those songs, ‘Nymphaea Caerulea’, was with an immensely talented woman going by […]
