This Mortal Sun
What a brutal masterpiece this is. Ranging from beautiful, clean guitars and floating vibes to heavy walls of crushing riffs. This kind of spot on Post-Metal is hard to find.
Favorite track: vanished.

rýr (islandic: barren, sparse, weak) is an instrumental post-metal band from Berlin, Germany. "left fallow" combines crushing and heavy riffs with spherical clean sounds in a non-standard yet intuitive way to balance different sets of emotions within individual songs. The concept of the band is to create diverging spheres in a simple and abstract way that is best suitable for being performed in an absorbing live environment. The six songs are perfectly filling over 50 minutes of an auditive journey.
This is their first full-length album, recorded and mixed by Jan Oberg at Hidden Planet Studios (The Ocean, Abest, Sun Worship) and mastered by Role at Tonmeisterei Oldenburg (Omega Massif, Ahab, Jungbluth).
