Night Viper are a hot-rockin‘ heavy metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. The first two ingredients in the Viper pie were Sofie Lee Johansson and Tom Sutton (Horisont, The Order Of Israfel, ex-Church Of Misery). As soon as they met, the chemistry started flying and some pure fist-banging heavy metal demos were thrown down. They were joined briefly by Sven Nilsson from Antichrist on drums as well as a few others on guitar and bass, but it was once swing master Jonna Karlsson was behind the kit that things started really moving. The folk-tastic stylings of Emil Ridderstolpe on guitar and the fast fingers of Ruben Åhlander Persson (Miasmal) on bass completed the lineup. They played their first show in Summer 2014, and since then have played at Heavy Days In Doomtown, Muskelrock and Geggan festivals to great success, along with gigs throughout Sweden. October marks their first European tour, with shows in Germany, Denmark and The Czech Republic with good friends Demon Head. They have released a single through Svart Records, and are again working with the label for the release of Night Viper, set to be released on CD, LP, and digital formats.
Fast, energy-driven Heavy Rock with a strong classic Heavy Metal feel, exciting, in-your-face riffs and catchy guitar solos…
Enrooted in the style of the late 70s and early 80s NWOBHM era,
this band will not make any compromise in show and sound.
