Hybrid.9 are a rock band that have exploded out of their hometown of Crewe and have begun to take the country by storm. We have recently been lucky enough to get a sneak peak at their new EP and it is simply awesome.
The first track ‘Absolved’ kicks in with a punchy rhythm that smacks you in the face making you sit up and take notice of these guys. Bolshy, powerful and laced with hooky guitar riffs, it is a superb opener. (And being absolute suckers for guitar harmonies, we have to give them props there too!)
Track two ‘Hidden Inside’ is the title track and its not difficult to see why – the opening riff draws you in, the fiery, dynamic rhythm inserts itself into your brain along with the catchy (yet raw and angry) vocals and the guitar solo is, quite frankly, the icing on the cake. Or the P90s on the Gibson.
The final offering on the EP is ‘Walking After You’ – it’s always difficult to select a ‘last’ song but these guys know what they’re doing and this track does not disappoint. The vocal melody is haunting and the music literally pulsates in its intensity and switches gears between full on forceful rock and a slower, more melodic guitar. This is an immense track which leaves the listener aching for more.
Hybrid.9 have an edgy sound that is entirely their own with a flavour of the classic Metal & Rock giants. These guys mean serious business and have the talent to back it up. You need them in your life.
