XCLSV PRMR: VYGR’S “FLARES”
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.
