Generation of Vipers Announce New Album on Translation Loss

It might seem like the local post-metal trio Generation of Vipers has been taking it easy since the release of its 2007 album, Dead Circle. But take into account that drummer B.J. Graves and singer/guitarist Josh Holt are also busy with North Carolina mountain metal band U.S. Christmas and the long gap between Dead Circle (“Imagine the sound of tectonic plates grinding against each other, the cacophony of Armageddon, or the noise of a thousand suns imploding simultaneously, and you might just have a feeble conceptualization of the band’s power,” our own John Sewell wrote about that album) and the upcoming Howl and Filth, due out in May, is a little easier to understand.

The new album’s imminent release isn’t the only big news from Generation of Vipers. After releasing Dead Circle and its 2005 predecessor, Grace, on their own Red Witch label, Howl and Filth will be released by hip Pennsylvania indie Translation Loss, which has released albums by Cable, Intronaut, and ex-Swans vocalist Jarboe. The new disc was also produced by can’t-miss knob-twiddler Kurt Ballou of Massachusetts hardcore legends Converge.
