Hackberry biography
Founded in Groningen, Netherlands in 2015

HACKBERRY is an Instrumental Heavy Prog band formed in Groningen, the Netherlands in 2015. HACKBERRY started out as an instrumental trio. Soon a second guitar player joined, and by adding a key player they completed the bands formation.

Late 2016 they released their first EP "Desert Orchid", a 13.5 minute instrumental song. In September 2018 they released their self-titled debut album "Hackberry". This album contains 4 songs with a total run time of 45 minutes. It also includes a polished version of "Desert Orchid".

The style of HACKBERRY can be best described as Instrumental Heavy Prog, but it also has influences from Classic Prog, Prog Metal, Stoner Rock and Psychedelic Prog. Expect clean melodies, heavy riffs, (dual)guitar solo's, (Hammond)Organ, Mellotron and groovy rhythm.

Hackberry Heavy Prog

Review by rdtprog

4 stars Sometimes you can be blown away by an instrumental prog rock album from a band that you don't hear a lot. This one has only four songs with 2 big epics. It starts with a song that has a solid melody in the vein of the more progressive side of Dream Theater. The song is played at just the right tempo to enjoy the melody. It's mostly drum/guitar and bass oriented but the keyboards have their space later on. There is some cool bass break in the middle of the first song with some spacey passage that brings things down. "Miraggio" brings another atmosphere with a short piano intro before the heaviness comes back in a pure Opeth style and some powerful guitar riffs. The band enjoys to stretch out their song in a kind of control jamming style keeping at times a frenetic pace with some smooth break and a quieter guitar to gives us a breather after some intense passages. I can't say anything wrong with this album that has solid melodies that keep you engaged throughout the 45 minutes. There's not a minute wasted for fans of Heavy Prog, Prog Metal and beyond...

Hackberry Heavy Prog

Review by prsguitarman

5 stars Ever since their EP ´Desert Orchid´ I followed this band. After hearing the renewed album version of this song I knew that this album was going to be good. The sound is very open and the playing very tight. I especially enjoy the 17+ minute openingtrack ´Ophidian Strike´, which has a very nice into groove, melodic parts with mellotrons, furious guitarsolo´s and even a groovy pshychedelic part, all ending with a bang. Also the spooky piano intro of ´Mirragio´ caught my attention. What followes is a heavy song which reminds me of Opeth. The track ´Aboard´is more stoner-prog, but a welcoming heavy addition to the lenghty prog'adventures. All in all, to me a masterpiece of progressive music!
Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
