New Hampshire may not be a frequent producer of solid extreme music acts, but there are handful of solid acts – namely Trap Them and Vattnet Viskar – who proudly call the Granite State home. The latter of these two bands is preparing the release of their second album Settler, with a unique source of inspiration drawn from a photo of Concord, NH teacher Christa McAulliffe training for the ill-fated Challenger mission (more details here). VV have already released an excellent primer with “Colony” (which can be streamed here), which they have now followed up with the equally excellent track “Yearn”, which debuted today via Decibel Magazine. Head past the jump to check it out:

“Yearn” is yet another example of VV’s attempt to blend their influences as seamlessly as possible. Their raw, earnest take on post metal is especially apparent here due to some piercing vocals and an overall instrumental dirge. The album will be released on June 16th through Century Media, and may be pre-ordered here. Additionally, VV will be setting out with Early Graves on a short East Coast tour leading up to Maryland Deathfest. No promises, but yours truly might attend the NH date this Saturday…
