Vypera: Eat Your Heart Out

Melodic Metal Rock
4.0/5.0

At the official start of Summer, we welcome a new band from the Swedish rock scene: Vypera. Started in 2016 under a different name, the band made the rounds playing cover songs. They evolved in their musical skill and changed their name to Vypera while writing their own original tunes. Capturing the attention of Italy's Frontiers Music, stalwarts of classic rock and metal, Vypera arrives with their debut album Eat Your Heart Out.

Vypera

While coming from the rich history of Swedish rock history, Vypera also take musical cues from Rainbow, King Kobra, London, Triumph, W.A.S.P., among others. Essentially then, Vypera plays classic melodic metal rock featuring bold riffs, constant rock rhythm and groove, and significant guitar solos with all things wrapped in song melody. Vocalist Andrea's Wallström has something of rough finish that some might find either assertive or abrasive. But not always: Standing On The Edge, Fantasy, and perhaps Windborne find Wallström dialing things back. He reminds me of another singer, but after two or so spins, I haven't been able to put my finger on who. Otherwise the album abound with ambitious metal-infused rocker like Cold As Ice, Spellbound, the quite speedy oxymoron, Slow Me Down, and the rousing number, Rock 'N Roll. All said, Vypera and their debut album Eat Your Heart Out is a fine addition to the Scandi tradition of classic melodic metal rock. Recommended. Support the band!
