A triptych transforming into a trinity, Hypno5e combine the technical prowess of BTBAM with the brutal onslaught of Monuments. Like laying on the beach, watching the waves of ghosts wash over us, ‘On Our Bed of Soil demonstrates the overwhelming depth of vision these French masters of cinematic metal possess.
HYPNO5E bring the haunting tones of their unique brand of avant-garde progressive metal up close with the physical release of “A Distant Dark Source Experience”, a streaming concert recorded earlier this year, consisting of a full performance of their latest studio album. Arising from the arid soil of pandemic times, this performance of “A Distance Dark Source” portrays the band at their most powerful and proficient, creating a visceral tribute to the darkness inside each of us that is even more gripping than the original studio recording.
Transforming the violence of (human) nature to a murmur beyond a melody, the soft passages of spoken words and clean finger-picked guitars form a cadence from which Hypno5e rebuild their tribute to the darkness inside our souls. For those who have watched the live stream, this is an incredible memory, and for those who have missed it, an incredible testimony to this band’s visceral artistry.
