SPECIAL LIVE STREAMING ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE WITH JAKE E AND MARCUS SUNESSON PLUS A FULL BAND Q+A!
AND ALSO A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!
11 AM (PST) / 2 PM (EST) / 8 PM (CET)
In November, modern melodic metallers CYHRA released their critically acclaimed new album »No Halos In Hell«! Loaded with melodic vocal hooks and heavy yet dynamic guitars that stay nailed to the brain for days, this sophomore full-length release proves Jake E (ex-AMARANTHE), Jesper Strömblad (ex-IN FLAMES), Euge Valovirta (ex-SHINING) and Alex Landenburg (KAMELOT) are a band ready to take the world by storm!
Today, CYHRA present the brand new official video for their song ‘Dreams Gone Wrong’that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/Dcy7wN1pDsA
CYHRA vocalist Jake E comments: “Sometimes it’s interesting to see what happens when you let the unexpected happen. ‘Dreams Gone Wrong’ was the last song we wrote for our new album “No Halos In Hell”.
We actually wrote it in the studio at the very last moment – when the album was more or less already done. Even though I was really pleased with what we had already recorded, I felt like we needed one more song to really make the album as strong as we all knew it could be.
I ran into studio B and came up with the basic song structure.
However… Alex was on his way to jump on a European tour with Kamelot, and had just started packing up his drums. So Euge and Jesper quickly teamed up and we got Alex back on the drum kit. Thankfully Jacob coordinated everything!
A couple of hours later… and the song was written recorded and produced!
The song sticks out lyric-wise as we were short on time, so I was inspired by a documentary I had just seen some months earlier about sleep paralysis.
Sometimes the best songs are the easiest to write.
Once again we had the opportunity to work with one of my best friends and the one and only Mr Patric Ullaeus for the video!
Please enjoy ‘Dreams Gone Wrong’.”

Thank you Japan & thank you Burrn! Magazine and everyone who voted us! We salute you!
Jake E says:
“Don’t really know what to say! Just got this sent to me from friends in Japan. I obviously knew about this beforehand but when it’s published it becomes real in another way. I got voted as the Best Songwriter by the readers of Burrn! Magazine. 😮
I also managed to be voted higher on the list (# 5 ) on the best vocalist charts than my childhood heroes Bruce Dickinson, Joacim Cans and Joey Tempest.
I don’t think that’s fair but just to be on the same list as them gets me chills.
Our song ‘Battle From Within’ won the BEST Song, and we also managed to get into the second place in album votings with No Halos In Hell.
Thanks to everyone who made this possible!”
We’re really excited to finally announce that we’ll be touring in Japan in June 2020!

Now that we’re starting a new album + touring cycle for our brand new album ‘No Halos In Hell’ (which comes out on Nov. 15, on Nuclear Blast) – we thought that it would be a good idea to give you all a quick update on what’s happening with the live band for our upcoming shows!
As many of you already know, Jesper is taking some time away from touring, and our good friend Marcus Sunesson has been joining us on guitar. Some of you have seen Marcus perform with us, and you already know what an absolutely incredible player, and performer he is.
We don’t want anyone to feel caught off guard about not seeing Jesper at the shows. Please know that he is still a member of Cyhra, and is with us in spirit at every show!
We look forward to seeing you all out there on the road very soon!
Jake E, Euge Valovirta, Alex Landenburg, and Marcus Sunesson.
This autumn is set to be filled with a new soundtrack when modern melodic metal highflyers CYHRA will release their sophomore album »No Halos In Hell« on November 15th, via Nuclear Blast.
Today, the band release their second single ‘Battle From Within’ together with a heart-warming lyric video. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPrnuk6hRlc
Vocalist Jake E. comments: “For over 10 years I pushed my feelings aside.
I thought I was strong… but in reality I just kept digging that hole deeper and deeper.
One day during the writing process of “No Halos In Hell” I was sitting by the piano, and while I was singing some gibberish to make up a vocal line for one of the songs, I felt something. And when I went back to listen to what I had just recorded, I realized that this was more than just gibberish to me.
I guess it was my own mind that started to process things. My brother, Fredrik, was taken away from me and my family way too early. Just as so many other human beings who decide every year to leave this earth on their own initiative.
When we discussed the video, I really didn’t “just” wanna do another normal lyric video. My Fiancee came up with the brilliant idea to involve the fans. We contacted our fanbase through our social media platforms, and the response was truly beyond overwhelming. We got more participants that we could fit in! The subject was close to our fans hearts – and I am eternally grateful for their participation!
My brother was strong, funny, and full of life and loved to work on his boat.
This song is for people like my brother.
I want them to hear this song before it’s too late. We only have one life! And even if you sometimes feel as though life isn’t worth fighting for, trust me, it is!
When I look at my kids I can’t stop thinking about what a fantastic uncle he would have been, and it hurts me that he was never able to meet them. I know how much they would have loved him. My parents lost a son. And me and my sister lost a brother.
He is forever missed and loved as we keep fighting our battle from within.”
