Vyre are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays an intersteller form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The initial Frontier Pt. 2" which was released by Supreme Chaos Records.
Clean yet distorted playing starts off the album before getting more heavy and melodic along with some grim black metal vocals and the synths bring in a very atmospheric sound to the bands musical style and after awhile spoken word parts are added into certain sections of the recording and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
When fast parts are utilized you can hear quite a bit of a raw black metal sound in the tracks that they are used and after awhile melodic guitar vocals and clean singing avant garde vocals become a huge part of the recording and the band also uses a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as adding in violins at times.
You can hear a great amount of Norwegian black metal influences in the tracks along with some technical and progressive elements and you can hear a great amount of talent and skill in the way that the band plays their instruments and at times the synths bring a classical and orchestra feeling to the songs along with an instrumental piece while vocals are brought back on the last track.
Vyre creates another black metal album that is very heavy, melodic, atmospheric and avant garde and they continue the tradition they established on the first album, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover futuristic and space travel themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Vyre and if you a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Naughtylus" and "RDR 66". 8 out of 10.
