“YLVA are a band that sound absolutely huge. Combining earth-shaking riffs and percussion with reverberating, emotive vocals and soaring melodies, the Australian sludge/post-metal outfit deliver something equal parts heavy and melodic on (M E T A).” – DECIBEL
Melbourne underground noise makers YLVA released their debut album, M E T A late last year via Pelagic Records.
Following on from the release, their extreme volume contrasts and stoic patience will be on show for the band’s first Australian tour this April/May!
Drawing influences from a deep well of experience in past outfits, YLVA create patient, dark and mysterious pieces of heavy music punctuated with crushing riffs.
Starting in Hobart with locals Departé and ending in Melbourne with Norway’s Ihsahn expect an intense evening of doomed sludge that will vibrate you to the very core.
