This is a review of another recording from We Were Viper Pilots which continues their instrumental hybrid of progressive death metal, djent and ambient rock with the self released ep being called "Progeny" and released in 2013.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars, as for t he synths when they are utilized they bring a dark, atmospheric and ambient sound to 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 t heir own along with a great amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while t he lead guitars are very melodic sounding progressive metal guitar solos and leads, as for t he acoustic guitars they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the progressive and ambient elements of the recording.
Vocals and songwriting are all absent form this recording with t he music being all instrumental, while the song themes cover darkness, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from We Were Viper Pilots and if you are a fan of progressive death metal, djent and ambient rock, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Miasma". RECOMMENDED BUY.
