Hybrid are a band from Spain that plays a mixture of brutal and technical death metal, gindcore, progressive and experimental and this is a review of their 2013 album "Angst" which was released by Deepsend.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy and progressive riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the saxophones which are only used briefly they bring an avant garde jazz sound to the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine technical and brutal sounding death metal with grind and hardcore together to create a sound of their own while the soft and clean elements bring elements of jazz, experimental and progressive music, while the lead guitars are very technical sounding death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the progressive elements of the music.
Vocals range from high pitched grindcore/noise screams, deep death metal growls, hardcore style yelling and some spoken word samples being utilized at times along with a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover Chaos Theory, New World Order, and Alienation, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, brutal and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Hybrid are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore, technical death metal, progressive and experimental and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Enter The Void" "Self-Implosion" and "Doomed To Failure". RECOMMENDED BUY.
