Swedish Heavy Metal Band VIPERINE Sign With METAL RULES RECORDS

Metal Rules Records has signed the Swedish heavy metal band VIPERINE to an international deal.

Founded in 2002, VIPERINE features ex-members of Lion Music recording artists WINTERLONG. The VIPERINE line-up consists of Hussni Mörsare (vocals), Payre Kankanranta (guitar), Erik Tornberg (bass), and Matt Buffalo (drums). Their debut CD of classic, bone-crushing, heavy power metal is entitled "The Predator Awakens". Album cover art was done by the renowned Kris Verwimp (THYRFING, ABSU, OLD MAN'S CHILD) and can be viewed at this location.

The 11-track CD, produced and recorded in Sweden, will be available for worldwide sale and distribution next week. The track listing for the CD is as follows:

01. Like a Viper
02. Obsession
03. No Longer Kinsmen
04. Heartblood
05. Fire, Wind and Rain
06. Pure Evil
07. Principles
08. Payback
09. Reptiles
10. Hunter's Prelude
11. I Am the Hunter

VIPERINE guitar shredder Payre had the following to say regarding hooking up with Metal Rules Records: "It's fucking badass to get this shit together with Metal Rules. No corporate fuckers involved, only true metal fanatics doin' it the hard way. The METAL way! No bullshit, no fuck ups, just loyalty to our mutual cause...Spreading kickass music!"

Metal Rules Records founder EvilG is excited to be working with VIPERINE: "After compiling the bands for our 'Volume I' release, VIPERINE was one of my favorites on there. When VIPERINE guitarist Payre spoke to me about having Metal Rules release their debut album, we thought this would make for an excellent launch-pad for Metal Rules Records. VIPERINE sum up just about everything I like about heavy metal — aggression, melody, and memorable songs. I'd be surprised if fans of heavy/power metal didn't love this band as they are not another faceless clone but already have their own sound."
