Yyrkoon

Originally started in 1995 as a melodic death metal band, France's Yyrkoon (so named after an obscure character in Michael Moorcock's Eliric series) have experimented with a number of different metallic styles over the course of their still developing career. At first, the band brought an ambient dark/black metal sound to 1996's Oath, Obscure, Occult demo and 1998's Oniric Transition debut album; but problems with their record label effectively iced their career until 2000, when a three-track EP called Forgotten Past finally succeeded in securing a new deal with Anvil Records. By then, Yyrkoon's sound was best described as thrash-fueled progressive metal topped with fantasy and terror-inspired lyrical concepts and could be heard on their second album, Dying Sun, in 2002. This active period served to solidify the group's lineup as Stéphane Souteryand (vocals/guitar/keys), François Falempin (guitar), Voctproen Vilchez (bass), Geoffrey Gautier (guitar/keyboards), and Laurent Harrouar (drums), if not their musical direction, which shifted radically once again for their Osomose Productions debut, Occult Medicine, in 2004. Most any signs of gothic and dark metal ambience were now gone (as were the rather superfluous keyboards), and in their place left ever-greater aggression and a crushingly thick death/thrash metal assault. Surprisingly, these tendencies remained relatively unchanged for the band's fifth album, Unhealthy Opera, also released by Osmose in 2006. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

Love Yyrkoon, been listening to em for years and will for many more to come.
Damn... library of metal person... you posted that same post on every metal band on Pandora. Unfortuneatl e y , nobody gives two f**ks about your stations... Just sayin...
The most rock and metal stations on Pandora Radio!
From reading their bio, the earlier stuff was darker....go t t a check that out but this new stuff is killer.
fantastic work, gentlemen.

Needed a *slight* downshift from Gojira (another French juggernaut) and this fits the bill nicely with no loss in musicality. Excellent!
They need Unhealthy Opera to...
Zzzzzzzzzz geez they're brutal......

Surprisingly good. Thrashing has never been this much fun! Or also just different, still though these guys come through quite well.

So far I like what I hear...
It's the best metal to shroom to.

These guys remind me of Zyklon/Myksk o g a lot. Good stuff for sure. I'll have to check out their earlier black metal stuff? Any one heard it?
Wow. Moorcock, Lovecraft. In addition to kicking a**, these guys must be pretty intelligent. I've never heard of them but damn this song is good
I like em alot- the clean singing seems a little out of place though...
their a very little known french death-metal band with small touches of black metal. they remind my of Behemoth in a way, but their a little more thrashy in their solo's. they use a lot of Lovecraft in their writing.
Holy s**t, these guys are amazing. Why haven't I heard of them before?
that's Michael Moorcock's 'Elric,' not 'Eliric.' For those who care.
