Vuyvr To Release Debut Full-Length Album "Eiskalt"

Switzerland's intense black metal outfit Vuyvr will unleash its debut full-length, "Eiskalt," on 12" vinyl this coming February 28th via Throatruiner Records and Blastbeat Mailmurder. Formed less than one year ago by members of seminal underground metallic hardcore acts, the band recorded these nine tracks within a day.

You can stream two tracks off "Eiskalt" in the player below, or check out the Richey Beckett-created artwork below.

"Trying to determine why Vuyvr’s debut album 'Eiskalt' is a stimulating and refreshing take on black metal is not an easy task. Hailing from Switzerland, their sound initially appears to be rather traditional, obviously influenced by a number of Norwegian and Swedish meisters of the genre.

"Beneath an impeccable flow and as the record will start to grow on you, you’ll notice subtle, personal touches which contribute to a large extent to the record’s peculiar charm. There’s majestic breakdowns who are wonderful but not strictly metallic ('Betrayers Of The North'), stellar dual guitars equally breathing of heavy metal and post rock ('Dead Trees Will Wander At Night'). The vocals are crisp but not exaggerated, conveying immediacy. The primitive pounding of the drums resonates the naive fury of extreme metal’s early days…

"Devil is in the details indeed and apparently Vuyvr have inherited the unorthodox class that characterizes their country’s metal tradition (Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Samael, Coroner…). Having excelled in the ranks of seminal underground acts such as Knut, Impure Wilhelmina, Rorcal, Elizabeth, they are not preoccupied by what the purists will think of them. They are devoted to sonic darkness and it’s all that matters.

"Less than a year after their initial racket, the band rushed into their practice space and recorded 9 tracks within a day that would eventually become 'Eiskalt.' Vuyvr has summoned a mighty alliance for its physical release. Throatruiner Records, France’s chaotic industry, and Blastbeat Mailmurder from Greece, operated by Dephosphorus’ vocalist, will deliver it to you on the 28th january 2013, the way it was meant to be: in a glorious 180g piece of wax, inspiringly illustrated by Richey Beckett. A digital version will also be available. Your winter just got grimmer."
