“Hey man, what’s that?”
“Nuthin. Just this god I’ve been incinerating”.
Switzerland’s black metal semi-newcomers Vuyvr have released the 4 song Incinerated Gods for stream and free download. A whirl of faster than hate black metal guitars and raw, transcendent adrenaline. I particularly dig the cold and expansive slow opening to “Infected Water”, track 3…before the song explodes. If you like your black metal somewhat lo-fi but with fairly melodic dark streaks embedded within the frenzy of drums and shouts, this will make you cry tears of joy to make your corpse paint run (assuming you wear that stuff). Great, great band.
Roughly one year after their acclaimed debut full-length, Swiss black metal mongers VUYVR deliver their new offering “Incinerated Gods”. On these four lengthy tracks, the band pursues the style previously developed on “Eiskalt”, paying their dues to traditional black metal while sticking to the unusual approach you can expect from these hardcore/post-metal veterans (members of Impure Wilhelmina, Rorcal…). These recordings also serve to pass the torch between drummers, the three first songs introducing new hitter Bastien (Lost Sphere Project), while the closing track stands as the last song recorded with Roderic Mounir (Knut). Cold, brutal and melodic, this live-recorded EP is another testimony of VUYVR’s raw power, making the band standing apart from their contemporaries.
