4 stars Vuvr must be one of the most under rated extreme metal band from Eastern Europe IMO. They are from Czech Republic formed aroud 1992 and disbanded 10 years later, offering only one album, issued in 2001 named very suggestive Pilgrimage. What an album!!!, this kick ass all the way, any fan of the genre must own it, belive me, this is simply outstanding, how is possible that such great and well performed album, gone almost unnoticed , not only here on PA but in general. Vuvr play a kind of death jazz fusion metal combined with growling vocal arrangements, but the main parts are progressive metal/fusion of the highest calibre. What strokes me at first listning and still after so many spins, is the crystal clear production and how easy musicians play from heavier parts to more mellow. Besides traditional instruments for an extreme prog metal band is some saxophone moments, very intriguing in this context, never though that will sound so great combined with the rest of the metalic aproach. Easy one of the most intresting albums I've hered from this genre in last years, creative and full of great pieces, uptempo and with aswell smooth moments. Similar with Cynic but they have their own sound for sure. 4 stars, recommened, intelligent and catchy.
