The Vipervikings - The Empire of Sleep (Alternative Rock)





The vipervikings are an electronic post-rock quintet based in Thessaloniki, GR. Formed in 2005 by long time friends Apostolos Papapostolou, Vasilis Paras, Vasilis Zlatanos and Phoevos Filkas and shortly afterwards recruiting guitarist Kostas Kyriakou and originally frontman Asteris Zaharakis, the vipervikings underwent a series of style and lineup changes until mid 2007. 

The second half of 2007 proved a major turning point for the vipervikings. Following Asteris’ withdrawal from the band, the remaining five members focused on writing completely new songs, drawing heavy influences from post-rock bands and electronic acts alike. The group slowly developed their trademark sound, using a string quartet in their compositions and fusing raw electronic sounds and beats with atmospheric electric guitar soundscapes (while gaining a large fan base along the way).

On 1/11/2007 they released their first self-produced promo EP “the empire of sleep”, and appeared in a series of gigs to promote their music. On July 2008 they appeared in Rockwave Festival opening for the Offspring, Marky Ramone and the Gossip.

Their new LP "Lusifer" is expected somewhere before summer 2013.
