SVNEATR (sun-eater) is a black metal band from Vancouver, Canada. They play a blend of melodic, atmospheric, and progressive black metal and are, in their own words, “the sound of nature screaming back at you.” SVNEATR released the demo “Serpents & Storms” in 2015 and their first full-length “The Howl, The Whisper, The Hunt” was released in March 2018. Their most recent album, 2021’s Chinook improved on their original sound, which honed in on their musicality and unique approach, was met with critical success. Chinook
boosted their Spotify figures to over 1,000 monthly listeners in August, reaching #5 on Bandcamp’s “New and Notable” for atmospheric black metal, and charting at #33 on Amazon’s Global New Releases for Hard Rock & Metal, and #57 on Itunes Metal Albums for the United States. They have most notably made appearances at Black Mourning Light 2018 and 2019 in Edmonton, as well as playing alongside such bands as Apollyon, Tempestarii & Numenorean. SVNEATR is a rising force in British Columbia’s extreme metal scene and are looking towards broader horizons in 2022 and beyond!
