Official press release:
Finnish melodic hardcore punk unit Tryer will release their scorching fourth full-length, Ei Kuole Koskaan, this April via Suicide Records.
Over the course of eleven tracks, Tryer builds on a concrete foundation that combines fast, melodic punk rock, feisty trash-riffs and hardcore aesthetics with a heavy metal twist. The band manages to capture the same intensity that has made them an underground success, known for their staggering live performances delivered with feverish energy. Ei Kuole Koskaan was recorded by Mikael Neves and Tryer, mixed by Kurt Ballou of Converge at GodCity Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Weekend Nachos, Nails, Magrudergrind, Wake, Tragedy) at Audiosiege with cover art and layout by Jussi “Hytky” Pohjanen (Amorphis, Hexvessel).
Notes Tryer guitarist Tuomas:
“I think the excitement and candid approach of making this record can be heard clearly. We are taking a step towards our hardcore roots and just wanted to make insane songs, which resulted in our most intense and best sounding album to date. To achieve this, we chose to work with Kurt Ballou who combines awesome professional quality with dirt, grit and haste that is the essence of Tryer’s chaotic world… I think you can hear the process in the songs as sounding spontaneous and surprising, but still consistent. All in all, this was our easiest record to make. We disregarded all unnecessary expectations and just wanted to make insane songs which are fun to play. And I think that is exactly what we managed to make!”
