ProvokingDrama I didn't even need to think about whether to buy this or not. Once I heard it, it was a foregone conclusion. Absolutely striking.

Raven Stead I have fallen in love with this release. Superb guitar work that draws you into the rich dark atmosphere created by the music. Harsh emotive vocals that never become weak are braided perfectly with some clean vox. The melodies are dark and repetitive yet never become boring, instead cloaking the listener with a desire to hear more. Deserves a vinyl release. I'll be among the first in line to get whatever Vyrju offers next! Favorite track: There Is No Grave Big Enough to Take All My Sorrows.

This debut EP from Vyrju takes you on a doomy black metal journey into your inner darkness.

"... before "The residue of Life" ties a hangman's nose around this immensely promising EP with its depressive, yet alluring, bittersweet black metal soul..."
- Geoff Birchenall (Zero Tolerance)

"‘The Residue Of Life’ is the first taste of the EP to be revealed thus far, and it’s grand, sombre strains bode very well indeed. "
- Kez Whelan (Terrorizer)

"In a word, Black is captivating. The melodies in each of the four songs, with the exception of the short instrumental piece “Gone”, have a sombre and even depressive air, but they’re memorable and often beautiful in their own grim, ravaged way."
- No Clean Singing

"Vyrju offer windswept melodic black metal buried under new-fallen snow. Oddly catchy and prettily plaintive."
- Kim Kelly (Kerrang, Pitchfork, Terrorizer, Metalsucks etc.)

Track Name: The Constant Void
Supreme darkness
Embrace my soul
Lost hopes
Endless pain
Left to die

Forever gone
No one to care
Empty feelings
Empty silence

A constant void of black
Trapped in an endless nightmare
Nowhere to run

A feeling of hopelessness
A killing pain
Broken memories

break the silence
Slay the innocent man
are chaos
are lost

destroy the construction of life
Lay all what’s left in ruins
invoke the tyrant
The tyrant of self-destruction

Falling...into black...

Scarred by life
A broken soul
Will it ever heal?

I am darkness
I am misery
I am the thorn in your side
I am your silence
Track Name: There Is No Grave Big Enough to Take All My Sorrows
Oh, sweet silent death...
Why have you left me alone?
It all sounds like
an endless noise
Oh please, grant me silence

Endless misery
All hope is lost
Empty inside
No more feelings left

I am nothing
The way that I’ve become
Oh please, give me strength
To heal - to ease

Broken and torn
Wounded and hurt
Broken and torn
Left alone

Oh, sweet silent death...
Will you ever take me away?
How can I find my peace?
Let me leave this misery

Is there a place
Where I belong?
Is there a place
Where I can breathe?
I finally found a way
I am leaving myself
Track Name: The Residue of Life
You walk the endless fields of repentance
A thousand steps in one
You harvest the forgotten times
And carry the burden of your self

Lost in the presence of your own emptiness
Let go of your own misery
You die a little day by day
I will make your death come true

Let me fade away

And you wither...
