Mmm, where to start, i would say that this band has a lot of promise and as a first album its ok. But they never really seem to get out of third gear and soar to where you would instantly pin them as a top notch rock band. With the multitude of similar bands currently on the scene (Backyard Babies, Heart Attacks etc..) I think the Vipers would be second division, and the website comparisons to AC/DC are misguiding. The songs are good enough but need better production and some more adventurous lead guitar playing, the solos are so very predictable and mechanical, average blues scale patterns, totally uninspiring. If this band wants big success then changes have to happen, it can be achieved as they look fantastic......but dont quite sound it...yet !
