Cyhra Debut New Video “Here To Save You”

Cyhra debut a new live video for their track “Here To Save You“. Explains the band’s vocalist Jake E: “Releasing “Here To Save You” as a live video was something that we thought of already after finishing up the song in the demo studio. And as we got the possibility to open up for Sabaton and Kreator a couple of months back it was a no-brainer to just make sure to put it on film.

I love how we were able to capture all the positive response, both within the band but also all the love we got for our newfound fans in the US & Canada. Every time I watch it I just want to go back out on the road! I hope you will like it as much as we do!”

In other news, Cyhra's bassist Peter Iwers (ex-In Flames) has stepped down from the band. Iwers was joined in the band by former In Flames guitarist Jesper Strömblad. Comments the band on Iwers‘ departure: More...

In Flames Releases Surprise Covers EP

Swedish melodic death metal veterans In Flames has today released a four track covers EP entitled, "Down, Wicked and No Good." Appropriately, the song includes covers of the Alice In Chains song, "Down In A Hole," Chris Isaak's, "Wicked Game" and the Depeche Mode classic, "It's No Good," for which they have released a new music video. It also contains a live recording of the Nine Inch Nails staple, "Hurt."

Speaking on the Depeche Mode cover, the band said: "We’ve been fans of Depeche Mode since we were as young as 10. Getting to do our rendition of ‘It’s No Good’ showed us a different side of the song – it brought new meanings to us. We relate to the lyrics and power of the song so heavily that it almost feels as if we could have written it ourselves. They’re a band that we’ve always looked up to. Growing up, you either listened to Pop, Synths or Rock and even though we are a metal band, Depeche Mode inspired a lot of the electronic elements we use in our music today." More...
