Ex-In Flames, Ex-Amaranthe, Etc. Members Join Forces In CyHra

Former In Flames members Jesper Strömblad and Peter Iwers have joined forces with Jake E (ex-Amaranthe) and Alex Landenburg (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody) in a new band called CyHra. The band are expected to release their debut album this fall.

Jake E. told Bravewords the following:

“I formed CyHra with a guitar hero of mine, Jesper Strömblad of In Flames. Me and Jesper have been friends for many years. We’re from the same city and I used to do pyrotechnics for In Flames way back in the day, so we became friends when we were on tour.”

He continued:

“At the end of 2015, beginning of 2016 we met at a bar and I told Jesper I was thinking about doing a solo album. He told me that he had also wanted to do a solo album and asked if I would sing on it. I suggested he play guitar on my solo album, and that’s when Jesper had the idea that we should do something together.”

He also added the following about the band’s sound:

“You can hear that CyHra is metal but over the eight years that I was with Amaranthe, I became really inspired by bands like Bring Me The Horizon, 30 Seconds To Mars, Sixx:A.M. and bands like that. There are heavy guitars, heavy drums, heavy bass, but you also have a bit more of this melancholic feeling in some of the CyHra songs. That’s why I said the music sounds a bit more modern. As you get older you evolve as a songwriter and CyHra is the result of that.”
