Fast rising stoner/psych giants, HydroElectric, have just set their controls for the heart of the sun, and are rapidly gaining momentum in the Northeast heavy music scene.
The band creates an alternate consciousness around their music. Utilizing heavy, catchy riffs, psychedelic synth washes, pounding drums, and moving bass lines, each song tells a story that is different from the next. The songs convey anger, sadness, triumph, love, hate, truth, lies, and ultimate deceit in each adventure.
The current material has already been captured on the band's forthcoming debut album, ?Space Dirt?. It?s a 9 track event, including guest musicians such as, J.Mascis and Murph from Dinosaur Jr., as well as Darryl Shepard from Milligram and Black Pyramid. The album was tracked, mixed, and mastered primarily at Slaughterhouse Recording Studio by Mark Miller. Other locations include Green Rack Audial Kitchen and Bisquiteen Studio with Justin Pizzoferrato.
Each member has a long musical lineage that draws from past & present projects, such as Architectural Metaphor, Palace In Thunderland, and Donut Kings. The influences of the individual members converge in a union of the heavy 70's rock such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Wishbone Ash, and Pentagram. Also present is influence of some modern space rock classics like Monster Magnet, Clutch, Soundgarden, The Atomic Bitchwax, and Tool.
