Spain’s finest technical metal act known as Hybrid has inked a deal with Deepsend Records! This means that their new album “Angst” will finally be released in the United States on April 30th. This news excites me since it has been five years since Hybrid released their incredible debut album, “The 8th Plague”.
Here is the official press release –
Spanish experimental metallers Hybrid have signed with Deepsend Records to release their sophomore album Angst on April 30th in North America.
The album was produced by founding member and drummer Chus Maestro, mixed at Sadman Studios (Wormed) and mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan) which feature their heavy and organic trademarked sound far from the non-credible modern superproductions.
The follow-up to their acclaimed 2008 debut The 8th Plague, is a conceptual behemoth of extreme metal that drives the listener through a progressive and intricate songwriting enriched with arrangements and dynamics able to keep the audience aware all time since the first listening.
Not unlike the game changer Planisphaerium by countrymen Wormed in 2003, Hybrid’s Angst could very well be the country’s next great output. A true Hybrid of genres canvasing all aspects of extreme music into one-cohesive yet complex vortex of sound. The twisted extreme death metal of Wormed, the frenetic mathmetal of Dillinger Escape Plan combined with the jazz elements of Candiria and progressive fusion of Cynic creates an impressive album that will appeal to fans of death metal, grindcore and progressive metal.
woah, doesn’t that sound awesome? For those of you whom may be unfamiliar with this awesome band, continue after the jump to hear an advanced stream of their new material.
