Featured Release

Hypno5e: Alba: Les Ombres Errantes81uY0-C-LkL._SY355_[1]Genre: Post Metal/Progressive/Acoustic // Label: Pelagic Records

Hypno5e has always been a band that required a bit of effort to fully get into. It wasn’t just that their sprawling post metal/prog/djent sound demanded a listener’s full attention, it was also the extended song lengths and frequent spoken-word monologues. Alba brings post metal structures, progressive tendencies, and even some djent rhythms, but it also gives listeners a new hurdle to overcome… it’s entirely acoustic. Of course, Albra isn’t the first time the band have dabbled in acoustics, but they had previously been brief and buried between more abrasive walls of sound. Surprisingly, the band pull it off really well… even if they still haven’t dropped the damn monologues.

Song Title: Who Wakes Up from this Dream Does Not Bear My Name

Damn, you know how much of a pleb you really are when checking the new release lists, virtually the whole thing just looks like 'what's this?/nope/never heard of them/sounds or looks bad/almost definitely is bad' etc.

I've still got lots of work to do here.
