Ylva are a band from Melbourne, Australia that plays a mixture of sludge and post metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "META" which will be released in November.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album before going into more of a heavier sludge metal direction while the vocals are very angry sounding and bring in elements of hardcore along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic post metal style and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
A great amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing while clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid tempo direction,
Ylva plays a musical style that mixes sludge and post metal together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover sadness and heartbreak themes.
In my opinion Ylva are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sitting In The Air" and "Widowed". 8 out of 10.
