Spin the disc and get ready for a ride of a lifetime.

Now, here we have a very interesting and perhaps perplexing musical entity called Hydrogyn, a ten plus year old music storm that doesn't seem to be anywhere near blowing itself out.

The group's new release 'Redemption' has a few firsts as well. They are celebrating a new signing, with the High Vol Music label, and on a global scale! 'Redemption' also marks the debut of new vocalist Erica Parrott, a powerhouse singer that easily keeps up with the energy of Jeff Westlake, Chris Sammons, and John Cardilino. They're a hard-hitting Rock group that pretty much defies any other categorised guide posts (much like Halestorm). The group is aggressive, hits hard and can emerge anywhere on the music style map!

Originally founded by Jeff Westlake and Jeff Boggs, along with front-woman Julie Westlake, the group began amazing audiences all across the States with their hard Rocking originals and ballsy renditions of other Rock-hard artists. Their journey began in 2004, and with eleven recorded works under their belt, it has been an adventuresome journey and an upward climb; at times, a tumultuous one, but nonetheless, the group just kept progressing.

2017 now sees the group opening up a new road. They're still aggressive, hard hitting and still capable of surprising music lovers the globe over. This new release is even more in-yer-face with an energy level off the scales (in both the music and vocal departments). They're a band that is not for the faint of heart, their music just burns and moves at the speed of light. Yes, it is Hard Rock-based, and yes, it is edged out with Metal, but surprisingly, one will hear a Bluesy, and believe it or not, a wisp of soulfulness in most of the songs. However, since Hydrogyn have defied category since their inception, maybe showing a bit of soul isn't so surprising. You can be the judge of that...

Although the group's first singer, Julie Westlake was very impactful, with a Bluesy growl that would send shivers down one's spine, Parrott's vocal style seems to be a tad more assertive and ballsy. On this record, the band appear to have found a renewed energy level and a confidence that allows them to explore new plateaus. Everything just seems to "pop"!

All I can add is spin the disc and get ready for a ride of a lifetime!
