XCLSV PRMR: VYGR’S “FLARES”

260

VYGR Hypersleep

You guys remember VOYAGER, right? Just last year they released a split LP with Monolith, which we premiered here on MS. Due to legal reasons the band’s been forced to drop a few letters of their name to the “can I buy a vowel, please?” shortened moniker¬†VYGR, but their music certainly hasn’t dropped anything… it’s just as heavy, sludgy, spacey and epic as ever.

VYGR will release their new album Hypersleep via Creator-Destructor Records on March 15th, and it’s a fucking beast. What I like most about VYGR — and in particular this album — is their ability to be sludgy, psychedelic, crushingly heavy AND epic all at the same time; most bands get caught up in being just one of these things to the extreme, but VYGR have struck the perfect balance. And the production, courtesy of tone-master Zeuss, is appropriately both raw and clear, an incredibly difficult achievement.

Stream the album track “Shapeshifters” at VYGR’s Bandcamp page, and the world premiere of the new song “Flares” below. Pre-order Hypersleep here.
