Germany's Vyre have returned with a new recording which continues their interseller form of avant garde and post black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Weltformel" which will be released in April by Supreme Chaos Records.
Sci-fi orientated soundscapes start off the album along with some elements of ambient while the music also has its symphonic moments as well as mixing in with the heavier sections of the songs and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion.
Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with some growls also being added into certain sections of the recording as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and when clean vocals are utilized they give the music more of an avant garde feeling.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs a more raw feeling along with some tracks also bringing in a small amount of clean playing and they also give the songs more of a progressive touch and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and spoken word parts as well as some stringed instruments are added onto the closing track.
Vyre creates another recording that remains true to the avant garde post black metal style of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover future and space travel themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Vyre and if you are a f an of avant garde and post black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shadow Biosphere" 'The Hitch (We Are Not Small)" and "Away Team Alpha". 8 out of 10.
