emptiness or voidness, VIPASSI showcases their exceptional artistry on their sophomore release,
'Lightless,' a record that delves into the timeless theme of light versus dark.
Named after the twenty-second Buddha, VIPASSI aptly characterizes the band's aura of absolute
clairvoyance. This quality is vividly mirrored in their prodigious technical musicianship, setting them
apart as instrumental superstars. 'Lightless' is a testament to their evolution, showcasing a level of
maturity that is awe-inspiring in the realm of instrumental progressive metal.
What truly distinguishes VIPASSI is their ability to craft an immersive musical narrative that
transcends words. Each instrument in their arsenal is not just a tool for delivering sonic notes but
rather a finely tuned instrument in the symphony of emotions they create. The listener is invited into
a sonic universe where they become the author of their own story.
The fretless bass tones wash over the audience like gentle waves, soothing and enveloping. The
eclectic guitar movements, executed with a precision that borders on the otherworldly, create a
dynamic and ever-evolving landscape of sound. These elements are beautifully complemented by
the thunderous and intricate drum work, which adds a dynamic and powerful undercurrent to the
VIPASSI's 'Lightless' is more than just an album; it's a journey, an exploration of emotions, and an
invitation to delve deep into the realms of light and dark. It's a testament to the band's
extraordinary skill and their ability to create a canvas upon which the listener can paint their own
vivid and personal story. In the world of instrumental technical metal, VIPASSI is an unrivaled beacon
of creativity and musical mastery.
