Spread the metal:

yawn - albumAs 2022 begins, Yawn stands at the ready with their first full length release: “Materialism.” The album reflects the band’s vision of bringing improvisation-based music to the fore in the context of modern concert production. The album features beautiful improvised soundscapes combined with aesthetics drawn from modern progressive metal bands like Meshuggah, Car Bomb, and Vildhjarta. Yawn’s live performances have been described as a magical experience where improvised, open, and formless soundscapes seamlessly transform into and away from machine-precise rhythms, all without warning from the performers on stage.

Since the band’s debut in 2020, Yawn has released their first single “Cement,” toured across southern Norway, and played for 15000 housebound viewers during a streaming concert from Chateau Neuf in Oslo shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic reached Norway.

After the release of Materialism on February 18th, 2022, the band will embark on a European release tour from February 25th to March 9th.

We checked in with the band to learn more about them, their reasons to create, and to ask them why metal rules!
