New Release: Zephyra - As The World Collapses (August 2016)


On the 5th August, Zephyra from Borås, Sweden released their second full length album, As The World Collapses.

With Åsa's distinctive vocals, Zephyra provides a wide sound in the metal genre, with the roots in thrash and melodic death metal. Since the official start back in 2011, the band has released a couple of EP's, played shows around Sweden, done live shows on the radio, and frequently been aired in American and British radio shows.


After signing a record deal in 2014, the debut album; Mental Absolution was released world wide on Wormholedeath label. The album received positive reviews and was followed up by two official videos.

The second full length album; As The World Collapses, was recorded in the last quarter of 2015, and will be released on August 5, 2016 via Inverse Records. With the new album, Zephyra wants to show a bigger and more atmospheric sound than before, heavy and rhythmic, with keyboards and Åsa's full ranged, diverse vocals.

A first video for Words of a Demagogue, from the new album, directed by Greenworks in Gothenburg, was released in June 2016:


Yet again, Zephyra have created a fantastic album. Having loved Mental Absolution, I was very much looking forward to hearing their new stuff and I was not disappointed! A brutal energetic onslaught that blends classic melodic metal elements, incredible and distinctive vocals and some pretty epic guitar riffs and blast beats.
