Hybrid - The 8th Plague

Hailing from Madrid, Spain’s Hybrid is a group that writes byzantine and demanding music that eschews traditional song structures and defies easy categorisation. Their indescribable sound is a puzzling agglomeration of a wide variety of influences and inspirations like Death-Metal, Grind, Math-core, Latin rhythms and free-style Jazz.
A song like “Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder” for example may require a few spins to fully absorb its blend of Cephalic Carnage’s technical and brutal Death-Metal with Yakuza’s jazzy quirkiness. Its weird time signatures showing brutal and complex riffs crossed with jazzy breaks and saxophone sections reveal a technical proficiency that not many bands can claim to possess.
Fans of The Dillinger Escape Plan for instance will certainly appreciate the intricacies and spastic movements of “Sleep of the Defeated”, which twists and sifts in so many ways with such a no-holds-barred aggression that is impossible to sustain without suffering some major blows.
There isn’t a dull moment to be found in this dynamic, impossible to be pigeonholed debut full-length work by this stunning Spanish act that simply deserves your utter attention!
