Hemina is a 4 piece Progressive Metal band from Sydney, Australia. The band’s sound has been described as a unique combination of hard hitting syncopated grooves, lush synth backwashes, multi-part vocal harmonies, blistering memorable leads with a focus on songwriting and emotion.
The band have supported international bands Uriah Heep, Kamelot, Apocalyptica, Queensryche and are opening for Haken on the Sydney leg of their Vector world tour. They have shared the stage with Aussie legends Caligula’s Horse, Chaos Divine, Voyager, Twelve Foot Ninja, Divine Ascension, Breaking Orbit among many others and simply live for the stage.
Hemina’s first three albums ‘Synthetic’, ‘Nebulae’ and ‘Venus’ were met with critical acclaim traversing many different sides of the band’s sonic spectrum from the complex and dark, to the immediate and uplifting. The release of ‘Venus’ saw Hemina taking their music overseas culminating in performances at Progpower Europe (Netherlands) and Euroblast (Germany).
The band’s fourth album ‘Night Echoes’ is the most collaborative work to date offering the eclectic flavours of what fans have come to expect in the past as well as a new palette and range of emotional expression never before heard from the group. Hemina return with a more concise 45 minute concept album exploring adolescence, nostalgia, grief, and loss in the 21st century with a thematic arc to accompany and elaborate on their previous conceptual output.
‘Night Echoes’ is Hemina at their most emotional and melodic without ignoring the aggressive and venomous side that keeps the music in balance. With a powerful modern production and mix crafted by Skene at Ploughman Studios with audiophile mastering from Ermin Hamidovic at Systematic Productions (Periphery, Devin Townsend, Plini, Architects) – this is Hemina at their best.
