Vuvyr are a band from Switzerland that plays a mixture of raw and primitive sounding black metal and post rock and this is a review of their 2013 album "Eiskalt" which was released as a joint effort between Throatruiner Records and Blastbeat Mailmuder.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they h ave a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine raw and primitive sounding black metal with post rock as well as utilizing some melody in the riffing and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams mixed in with some hardcore style growls, while the lyrics cover dark, cold and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Vuvyr are a very great sounding hybrid of raw and primitive sounding black metal and post rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band.
