We Were Vipers are a band from the United States that plays a very instrumental and progressive form of death metal with elements of djent and ambient rock and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Colorless".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into t he music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine progressive death metal with djent and ambient rock to create a sound of their own with a goof amount of melody being the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding progressive metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the progressive and ambient elements of the recording.
Vocals are all absent from this recording with the music being all instrumental, while the song themes cover darkness and philosophical topics, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album.
In my opinion We Were Vipers are a very great sounding instrumental hybrid of progressive death metal, djent and ambient rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tuned To A Dead Channel" "The Aching Taste Of Blue" "His Eyes Where Eggs Of Unstable Crystal" and "The Prison Of His Own Flesh". RECOMMENDED BUY.
