VRIESS is the contaminated Thrash / Death Metal child of the 2020 pandemic formed by PROJECT FOR BASTARDS members Greg and Chris (also ex-THE LUMBERJACK FEEDBACK) that decided to start working back on songs the later started creating a decade before.
Mixing groovy and heavy riffs, Thrash Metal’s appetite for speed and Death Metal’s hungriness for rotten atmospheres in their material, the duet soon recruits professional session musicians to complete the line-up with drummer extraordinaire Kévin PARADIS (BENIGHTED, MITHRIDATIC…) behind the kit and mesmerizing Linus KLAUSENITZER (ALKALOID, ex-OBSCURA…) on bass
Five songs are soon finalized with the addition of respected guitarist Christofer MALMSTRÖM (DARKANE…) as a guest soloist on one, resulting in the band’s debut EP that’s, lyrically, a reflection about the world we live in during these current troubled times.

Absolutely crushing dissonant death metal!
With great production and tight performance from these meat sacks, this dark brutal dissonant masterpiece will be on my favorite list forever.
Don't pass up this album, trust me it's fuckin great!
Fuck, what a punch in the face!
Technical Death Metal as its best.
Last of Lucy really kick your balls.
Moksha is a crazy high speed trip and you‘ll wish that it will never end.
And damn,… those vocals are insane! Sælzer Bub
