Animals As Leaders and The Winery Dogs in a cage-match
COMMENTS:
Progressive guitar virtuoso Al Joseph leads the charge for this debut full-length, 'Earthquake', for Los Angeles act Hyvmine. It's described by the label as Animals As Leaders and The Winery Dogs in a cage-match. I could agree with that. Vocally it's smoothly delivered, bordering on more modern hard rock nuances but building in down-tuned, heavy-handed riffs. With some of the vocal melodies I can hear some semblance to Shaman's Harvest but more mechanical like Sevendust.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Shaman's Harvest, Sevendust, Animals As Leaders
