Review Type: 

Hybris is a London based technical thrash metal band witch concept started originally in distant 2002, when Federica (Centurions Ghost) made camp in London and started writing riffs for what would have been an all-female metal band. However, finding the right people seemed to be a big issue. Either due to lack of commitment or ability resulted in Fed shelving the project and becoming involved with Centurions Ghost, who were actively touring and recording for several years.

But in 2008 some of those demos they made earlier, found their way around and people got interested. And so they went out, got a complete line up and made a record witch got released last month.

Now this is rather something rather odd. Because trash metal and technical metal sounds like a strange combination but on the other hand creates expectations and high hopes. And after giving this album a few tries, I’m still not sure if I like it or not. Because you have certain riffs that are to complicated to be good trash riffs. Even if they shave something cool, they feel to strange in this concept. So yeah, they are great musicians, and they can prove it with this record, but sometimes less is more.
