Taking their name from Siberia in Russia, which has the coldest populated town on earth, definitely suits their style. Cold and technical metal with hints of Hardcore, Thrash, Black gaze metal, and a tasteful, fearless joy of pushing genre boundaries.
Their debut album Sibiir
was released in December 2016, through Oslo-based cred-label Fysisk Format, making many of the year's top lists, and was hailed by Terrorizer as "a savage". From Bekmörke
's second wave of black metal and hardcore fusion, via the relentless tempo of Beat Them to Death
, to the catchiness of These Rats We Deny
and White Noise
, SIBIIR’s full length debut reeks of creativity and headbangable riffs.
Their S/T debut’s sonic output is so heavy and full of energy that one will crave seeing them live before the opening track Bekmörke
is even finished, and their critically acclaimed live shows both at clubs and festivals like Roskilde and Öya surely have given them quite a reputation so far - even earning them two tours in Europe with Kvelertak
, and shows with Enslaved
