Ypres is a St.Petersburg band named after the Belgian locale famous for being the place of first ever effective use of chemical weaponry in a war setting. Over the last 4 years the band has released a debut self-titled full-length, followed by the EP Genus Vitiosum, showcasing a firm affinity for the legacy post metal sound. On the latest release, the Umwelt single/EP, the band displayed a strong leaning toward a spacier, country- and Americana-tinged sonic landscape with some layered rhythmic concepts while engulfed in doom and sludge metal spirit.
