"Angst," the second full-length from Madrid-based experimental extreme metal trio Hybrid, is now available through Deepsend Records. Hybrid was born in 2004 with the intention of setting up an unorthodox extreme music project without self-impossed limits.
The band recorded Beyond Undeniable Entropy in 2005 as a presentation, a six song debut MCD of avant-garde, eclectic and technical metal, released the next year by Deadwrong Records, which got a great response within the underground scene. Stream this entire sophomore album from the band in its entirety below, or over at bandcamp.
In the beginning of 2007 Hybrid entered Sadman Studio to record its first full length album "The 8th Plague," mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan) and with artwork by Seldon Hunt (Neurosis, Isis), which was released by London-based label Eyesofsound (Bossk, Yakuza) in August 2008. "The 8th Plague" received an outstanding reception worldwide, as it was selected one of the best albums of the year in several specialized media.
After playing live with bands like Tool and Cephalic Carnage, Hybrid went back to the studio in 2011 and recorded its sophomore album "Angst," settling their unique approach to the genre while taking their sound one step further in terms of creative freedom.
