LVA: Release Video For Hunting Room

YLVA 
Release Music Video For Hunting Room
Announces Album Launch Show with Lo!

Melbourne underground noise makers YLVA released their debut album, M E T A last month via Pelagic Records.

Today the band have released the video for Hunting Room taken from the album.

The track isn’t just a swinging sledge hammer of desperation but more the blueprint of self reflection and the record as a whole.

Director Matt Adey (House of Vnholy) has worked with the band in various forms and took on the piece to create their new film clip. 

This harsh landscape YLVA paints in Hunting Room is explored and portrayed by Adey in an immersive connection between sound, light and story.

Directors notes:

YLVA's Hunting Room video clip is a combination of competing imagery and aesthetics between the bands contemporary metal sound and tropes of the classical. Taking inspiration from “the Dying Swan’ solo by Mikhail Fokine paralleled with the folklore of Dante’s Inferno and the concentric circles of hell. Unlike the narrative of traditional folklore, the images are a pastiche, a collage of strong symbolic gestures for the viewer to interpret.

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 at extreme volumes.

While the first half of this stunning debut album feels very condensed, driven by painfully low riffs and painfully slow drums, YLVA are thinning out their compositions thorughout the 2nd half of the album... making way for the beauty of dark, empty space. Tracks like the 13-minute opus “The Fall” take their time until they reach the breaking point, the moment of collapse of the previously constructed massive sonic building – a collapse that is imminent from the very beginning of the song, or the construction process, if you want

There is an unmistakably physical quality to YLVA's craft. One needs to let the frequencies do their work in order to fully grasp and be shaken by the essence of this band. “There is not a wasted note, beat, tone, noise or vocal line, but there’s also a beautiful level of restraint, both regarding how they write in levels of light and shade, but also in how no one in the band ever seemed to overplay”, 

The album was recorded at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne, mixed by Mike Deslandes and mastered by Dav Byrne at Iridium Audio.

META rounds crushing intensity with transcendent movement from end to end. In support of the META release in late 2017, YLVA will share their already revered live show through Australia, Europe and the United States.
