CyHra (Ex-In Flames/Amaranthe, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Letter To Myself”

CyHra (ex-In Flames, ex-Amaranthe ex-Shining, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Letter To Myself“. This song is from the band’s new album “Letters To Myself,“ which will be released on October 20.

Jake E. commented:

“It feels amazing to have ‘Letter To Myself‘ as a single as this was the first song me and Jesper wrote together. I am very proud of how this song ended up and the lyrics are so straight forward that I bet that most people can relate to those. Most of us has been through problems of getting out of a bad relationship or battling with ones like gambling or addiction. I can’t wait to have the whole album to be released and see people’s reactions.”

Euge Valovirta (Ex-Shining) Joins CyHra (Ex-In Flames, Ex-Amaranthe, Etc.)

It has been revealed that ex-Shining guitarist Euge Valovirta has joined CyHra. That group also features former In Flames members Jesper Strömblad and Peter Iwers, Jake E (ex-Amaranthe) and Alex Landenburg (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody). The band’s debut album “Letters To Myself” will be released on October 20.

CyHra commented:

“We’re thrilled to inform that Finnish guitarist Euge Valovirta will be joining CYHRA as our fifth member!

“Euge has already contributed to our forthcoming new album, ‘Letters To Myself’, by playing twin guitars and solos, and he’ll be shredding with us live as well.

“During rehearsals, it became obvious that we would need two guitars to reproduce the songs in a live setting, so we decided to ask our good friend and amazing guitarist Euge Valovirta to join CYHRA. Euge had already done a killer job on the album and we can’t wait to share the stages of the world with him.”

Valovirta himself added:

“I feel very honored and excited to be part of this amazing band together with these talented and professional guys and I look forward to kick some serious ass on stage on our upcoming tours. I’d like to welcome all our current and future fans to our shows; it will be ass-kicking juicy! Oh, and the album is amazing too!”

CyHra (Ex-In Flames, Ex-Amaranthe, Etc.) Premiere “Karma” Music Video

CyHra, the band featuring former In Flames members Jesper Strömblad and Peter Iwers, Jake E (ex-Amaranthe) and Alex Landenburg (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody), have premiered a new video for their song “Karma.” This song is from their debut album “Letters To Myself,” which will be released on October 20, via Spinefarm Records.

Jake E. said the following:

“It was a pleasure and a no-brainer to re-unite with director Patric Ullaeus for the video. Whatever that man touches just turns to gold. We shot the clip in an old factory that has been abandoned for 25 years.

The story line is part of a bigger narrative that will continue in the next video. I am tremendously proud of the end result, and I hope that our fans will be as excited about the video as we are.”

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.”
