A Distant (dark) Source - Part Ii
HYPNO5E have forged the term "cinematic metal" with their truly epic scope compositions, oftentimes exceeding not only the 10- but the 20-minutes mark, merging elements of contemporary metal with latin folk and soundtrack-score like sonic landscapes. After the acoustic special album "Alba - Les Ombres Errantes" (2018), the Southern French quartet are now returning with a more "typical" HYPNO5E record, if there is such a thing: their 5th album, "A Distant (Dark) Source", is the second part of a diptych album project. Each part will be released separately, starting with the second one. "A Distant (Dark) Source" continues to chase those demons and lost memories which the band has been chasing ever since their debut album "Des Deux L'Une Est L'Autre": the album is an inward journey to the land of the ghosts of the past. At the origin of this distant dark source lies Tauca, an old Paleolithic lake located in Bolivia, where singer and guitarist Emmanuel Jessua has grown up, and continues to find inspiration for his musical endeavors.
