4 stars Hypno5e is an experimental/post metal band from Montpellier, France, established in 2003. Their music is considered to be all-in-one with the visual arts, because the band's personnel are also professionals in the film industry. Their idea is to combine sound and space imagination, give it an abstract meaning, and make music technical and Deep emotions come together, and albums are mostly concept albums. The theme is the interpretation of life. During the band's performance, video and movies are often projected to show the power of image and music. Since 2007, four albums have been released. This year's new "Alba - Les Ombres Errantes" has a full 75 minutes long, which is actually a complete soundtrack for the band's guitarist. Listening to the opening song does not have any metallic taste. Instead, it is folk and psychedelic, some pf, but the English in French sounds awkward. It only shows the heavy side until the end. Because it is a film soundtrack, there will be many narrations and dialogues in the songs (returning back to French). I think this will affect musicality to a certain extent, but there is no way to do it. In addition, some of the melody of folk music, plus most of them are solo acoustic guitar, so it seems to have a small fresh flavor and exotic style, and the voice of the lead singer is also very open (reverberation use much?), In other words, some of the experimental sound effects show that they are different. I think if you remove these monologues, you can have four stars. At present, between Samsung's half and four stars, you can hear it.
