Science fiction-influenced electronic progressive metal band Mytra have some days ago released the follow-up to their long awaited 2014 debut album via Nail Records. The second full-length, titled Logos contains 11 brand new songs featuring ethereal synthesizers, electronic melodies and effects with diverse vocal performances. The first song from the upcoming album N.I.R.A.,

Vocalist and guitarist Róbert Hocza says, «The new song, N.I.R.A is about the symbiosis of human beings and machines, which is not so much of science fiction anymore as there has been numerous experiences where the connection between the human brain and machines controlled by them have proven to be successful. In the near future the digital gadgets on our tables, in our pockets and hands will become parts of our bodies and will serve us expanding our comfort zones as our stationary helpers. This technological advancement will however most probably going to strike the killing blow to the already dying social interactions and connections, so humanity enters a new historical age: the cycle of digital solitude is about to begin». The track The Artificers,

With Logos Mytra claim to have taken a much more direct and straightforward approach to the songs, making them their heaviest and most compact one to date. Besides the usual female lead vocals and vocoder, this time the album also features male growled vocals.

Logos is a direct successor to the debut album Beta from 2014. With the many line-up changes the music has of course changed a bit, but the overall atmosphere and sound remained the same.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (3765 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
