VUVR was a technical death metal band with jazz influences that was founded in 1992 in Czech Republic.
VUVR formed in autumn 1992--the original lineup was Radek Kopr (guitar), Adam Klopar (bass, vocals), and Olda Sušil (drums). They started as a hardcore
band. After three years, Vít Jindřichovský (guitar) joined VUVR and the band already tended to play death metal
. In 1997, a 33-minute long demo was recorded and in 1998 was self-released as Slaves Of Time
. Critics were altogether positive and labeled the band as technical death metal
. VUVR toured around the Czech Republic and took part in many music festivals
. In autumn 2000, they returned back to the studio to record the full length album Pilgrimage
, that fuses death metal
, art rock
and jazz elements
in a similar way to Atheist, Cynic and Pestilence's technical and musical sensibilities. After the release, VUVR had a couple of concerts with a more or less art rock
sound and a female vocalist and later split up.
Some members hosted in other bands. Adam Klopar played in YBCA and did the vocals for Forgotten Silence. Olda Sušil plays in Happy Death.
