HEMINA are a unique voice in the ever-growing world of Progressive Metal. With a keen sense for melody and harmony. From Australia, the band takes the listener on an 80 minute aural journey into the life
of an angel born onto the world, forced to live through our modern world and beyond with this, their debut concept album, 'Synthetic'. Hemina puts melody, songwriting and atmosphere before any of the instrumental histrionics one may typically think of in today's world of Progressive music whilst still maintaining the
level of technical proficiency listeners have grown accustomed to.
With a crystal-clear mix provided by Progressive Metal Veteran, Tommy Hansen at Jailhouse Studios, Denmark (Helloween, Circus Maximus, Redemption, Seventh Wonder, Jorn), the band deliver a dynamic and sumptuous adventure packed full of wailing guitars courtesy of Douglas Skene and Mitch Coull, atmospheric keyboards by Phill Eltakchi, passionate vocals led by Douglas Skene, a thundering and dynamic rhythm section paved by Mathew Irsak on Drums and Jessica Martin on bass, as well as beautiful harmony vocals from Douglas, Mitch, Phill and Jessica covering a wide range of timbres.
From the moment the atmospheric opener 'This Hour of Ours' kicks in, the listener is sucked through textural soundscapes that bridge this life with the next as we are taken on a journey from celestial realms to the pseudo-apocalyptic world of our times and back again on a mission to find meaning. 'Synthetic' is an eclectic journey of fresh
and exploratory sound ranging from multi-part epics such as 'To Conceive a Plan' and 'Divine', to passionate ballads in 'For All Wrong Reasons', and hard hitting rockers like 'With What I See' and 'Haunting Me!'. The album presents itself as a 79+ three-dimensional adventure through segued tracks of varying dynamics.
For those who enjoy music that bears depth, emotion and passion For fans of; Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation, Ayreon, Yes, Devin Townsend, Genesis, Pink Floyd.
