Cyhra is a four-man proof of modern metal talent. Formed in 2016 by ex-Amaranthe vocalist Jake E and former In Flames guitarist Jesper Strömblad, the band’s debut album “Letters To Myself” was the result of a partnership that was, as Jake E explains, “plainly meant to be”. The band was completed with the joining of the former In Flames bassist Peter Iwers and Alex Landenburg from Annihilator and Stratovarius. In September 2017, the Finnish guitarist Euge Valovirta from Shining joined the band as the 5th member and Cyhra was complete!
The band’s first single “Karma” was released in August 2017 and the debut album “Letters to Myself” in October 2017. The debut album is a strong showcase of the many talents within the band; from the high energy riffs of songs like “Karma” to the melodic ballads like “Closure”. The first tour of the band kicked off on the 27th of October 2017 from Helsinki, Nosturi and since then, the band has toured hard, performing in festivals such as John Smith Rock Festival in Laukaa, Finland.
The band has been writing and demoing songs for the next Cyhra album and will hit the studios soon again in Denmark.
