Hydra a band as multi-faceted as its many headed namesake is a symphonic metal band from Regensburg, Germany.
After releasing the debut CD ‘Malachite Skies‘ the Band is eager to release the follow-up, entitled ‘Solar Empire’. The full-length album will be released on December 30 in 2016. When listening to ‘Solar Empire’ you can clearly hear the progress the band has made over the last three years. The new songs are more symphonic, heavier and show more versatility.
Besides quite varying vocals from Lisa known guest singers can be heard as well on the new records. On ‘Solar Empire´ ZUBEROA AZNAREZ(Diabulus in Musica) and HENNING BASSE (Firewind, Mayan), as well as JULE DAHS, a rock singer from Cologne in Germany, are featured. Moreover, HYDRA is accompanied by a big classical choir on this release.
The LAURENTIUS SINGERS agreed to do choir passages for the whole record and the classical choir is definitely an element which is distinctive for the band´s current sound.
‘Solar Empire’ is the band´s first concept album. The 11 songs tell the tragic story about a loving couple ‘Solar Empire – Scent of the Wolves´.
