Hypno5e are a band from France that plays a mixture of extreme metal, djent, progressive, ambient and experimental and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Acid Mist Tomorrow".
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with some fast drumming and blast beats being used briefly, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the synths when they are utilized they bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the recording..
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine extreme metal, djent, progressive, ambient and experimental to create a sound of their own with a good amount of melody and clean playing being thrown into the riffing in addition one of the songs starts out very fast than goes back to being slow and heavy and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add more progressive touches to the album.
Vocals range from extreme metal shouts and screams that utilize some hardcore elements, clean singing and spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes with a couple of songs being written in French as well as some the song writing following concepts, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Hypno5e are a very great sounding hybrid of extreme metal, djent, progressive, experimental and ambient and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Acid Mist Tomorrow" "Story Of The Eye" and "Gehenne Part 3". RECOMMENDED BUY.
