The Golden Grass come hard with a strong backbone of deep-pocket funky flare and an earnest/uplifting southern/country/mountain rock vibe, layered with waves of psychedelic textures that explode into jaw-dropping proto-metal moves. And throughout their progressive arrangements and timeless grooves are lush and powerfully delivered vocals, stacked with gorgeous harmonies and maddeningly catchy verses and choruses singing the tales of real-life loves, losses, and the drive to keep on keepin’ on!
The Golden Grass formed in early 2013, and before they had even played their first show, they were signed to Svart Records. Their debut 7” was issued in October of that, as a split release with US label Electric Assault Records.
Hypnos play heavy action boogie rock and is at this moment one of the fastest growing bands on the Swedish heavy rock scene. Never before in the history of Crusher Records has a band been signed to the label this quickly!
Hypnos was formed in late autumn 2013 and it only took a handful of shows of intense energy backed by a solid repertoire to get Crusher Records immediate attention. Shortly a deal was struck! Hypnos wasted no time and in February 2014 the band entered Kungsten Studios to start recording their debut album.
Their self-titled debut album contains eight tracks of high octane heavy rock: the initiating and nearly eight minute long Hands of Evil offers a big dose of thunderous drums, heavy riffs and singer Philip proving his skills with the flute as well as his killer voice; The Mountain, which also precedes the album as a single release, with a lovely riff of twin guitar harmonies; the semi-ballad Nightmares bringing some dynamic and balance to the album; and five additional hard rocking memorable tunes.
