Album: Generation Of Vipers - Grace

Drawing equally from doom metal, epic droning soundscapes, and psychedelia, Knoxville, Tennessee's Generation Of Vipers have crafted an aurally captivating , epic, and profoundly elegiac work in their aptly-titled debut LP "Grace". Over the course of four tracks and 41 minutes, Generation Of Vipers pilot an aural rollercoaster of tension and release; each moment is tempered in dense atmospherics and thunderous rhythms as the band seamlessly trods from plaintive dirges akin to early Neurosis to more pensive passages reminiscent of bands like Swans and Grails . The band displays a certain mastery of tone and songcraft, as crushing distorted bass, enveloping rhythmic onslaughts, soaring guitars, and mournful, throaty wails collide to create sonically dense and captivating music.

Band: They Don't Sleep

They Don't Sleep are a piano led progressive band hailing from London. The band consists of Glenn Kerrigan - Piano/Keys/Vocals, Will Kendrew - Bass/Vocals, Andi Newman - Drums, William Young - guitar. William is not the original guitarist of the band, their previous guitarist left due to undisclosed reasons and William was (at the time) 'drinking mates' with the band.

They Don't Sleep's most recent E.P, 'The Drawing Game', was a self release by the band near the end of 2006, they decided to release it themselves after having many meetings with various different major labels to no avail.

2007 is looking exiting for TDS as they have shows booked with such bands as 'Jenniferever' and they have been tipped for big things by Rock Sound (on of the more reputable journals of musical opinion), it's only a matter of time before They Don't Sleep hit it big.
