Cyhra, a new band featuring Jake E., Jesper Strömblad, Peter Iwers, Alex Landenburg and Euge Valovirta have released their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Letters To Myself’.
The album features plenty of the magic that each member of the band has become known for over the years. From the catchy twin-guitar attack of Jesper Strömblad &
Euge Valovirta, the soaring, soulful splendour of Jake E.’s unmistakable voice to the pummelling, groove-driven precision of Peter Iwers’ and Alex Landenburg’s rhythmic bedrock, every last moment crackles with the excitement of fresh territory, new challenges, and a brand new identity for all involved to embrace.
The album was recorded & produced at various studios around the world, but mainly in Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden by Jakob Herrmann (Amaranthe, Anthrax, etc.) and at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark by Jacob Hansen(Amaranthe, Volbeat, etc.), who also mixed & mastered the album.

Formed in 2016 by long-time friends Jake E. and Jesper Strömblad, Cyhra has already lit a fire under the contemporary metal scene that promises to blaze for decades to come.
“The excitement that I feel about Cyhra is over the top,” Jake E. exclaims. “I have to pinch myself every day to make sure it’s not just another dream. I am so proud of the music we have created and finally I can show it to the world!”
“For the first time for as long as I can remember, I feel I am a part of something special,” adds Strömblad. “This band has helped me regain my true passion for music. Finally, I can share this with the world!”
