Sydney four piece progressive metal act Hemina is preparing for the release of the third studio album, "Venus," on November 11th. A lyric video for the new song "Moonlight Bride" can be viewed in the player below.
"Venus" is an 80 minute concept album detailing and examining domestic violence, relationships, and individuality in the 21st century with a narrative arc to accompany and elaborate on their previous conceptual output.
Hemina combine hard hitting syncopated grooves and lush synth backwashes with multi-part vocal harmonies and blistering, memorable leads to create soundcapes full of emotion.
The band's first two albums "Synthetic" (2011) and "Nebulae" (2014) were met with critical acclaim traversing two different sides of the band's sonic spectrum from the complex and dark, to the concise and uplifting.
"Venus" sees that spectrum expand, offering flavors of what fans have come to expect in the past as well as a new palette and range of expression never before heard from the group.
From their ambitious "proggy" beginnings that shaped the first release, the band developed a more alternative and concise sound for album number two and have now found their sonic feet and what they feel is the definitive Hemina direction and lineup.
"Venus" has been the most collaborative experience so far, with all members contributing to the songwriting process. So although many of the flavors and sounds will be familiar to those who know them, they are most certainly are treading new ground and this is the most adventurous they have been. More...
