Generation Of Vipers - Coffin Wisdom LP
Released on vinyl under exclusive license from Translation Loss.
ItÍs hard to believe three years have passed since the release of Howl & Filth, Generation of VipersÍ prior full-length. ItÍs an album that has only managed to improve with age, and I find myself more into it with every listen. So, naturally, when the opportunity was presented for Gilead Media to work alongside GoV and long-time friends Translation Loss to present a vinyl edition of their new album in North America, brilliantly titled Coffin Wisdom, I didnÍt hesitate for a single moment.
For all the love and affection I have for their last effort, I still wasnÍt prepared for the impact of Coffin Wisdom. Engineered by bassist Travis Kammeyer and mixed by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio in Brooklyn, NY, these seven new tracks display a focusing of power. Harnessing influence, maturing as a creative force, and crafting their most fully realized works thus far.
Generation of Vipers define a musical amalgam. A bit of metal and a dash of hardcore blended with hefty dollop of noise-rock. ItÍs obvious there has been a focus placed on developing a real tone in their sound, and itÍs pushed right to the forefront riff after riff. Coffin Wisdom is thick, and itÍs a total sonic assault.
Coffin Wisdom will be presented as a 33 1/3 rpm LP, with jacket printed on 20 pt reverse stock. The vinyl edition will also include an 8-page 11_ x 11_ booklet. This album is released on vinyl under license from Translation Loss records, the label that released the CD in October. Limited to 500 copies on solid black vinyl, clear w/black smoke, and orange/white/black swirl. Only solid black vinyl remains.
