HEDRA Verb: To accidentally ruin something permanently.
Norwich & Norfolk Noise mongers Hedra were formed in 2014 by Guitarist Kamil Korsak, to create a different style of Metal music, with a pure aspiration to bring it to the stage, with desire find a unique following that is into groove, power and an honest live feel.
Influences of Slipknot, Will haven, Korn and Pantera can be heard in their Song structuring, the idea is not to plaigerise but to create something the merges all genres & simply sticking to the original tag of 'Heavy Metal', this gives the band freedom to reign and evolve in whichever way they choose.
With Seven strings on the Guitars tuned to low end G# Jim uses vocals in a falsetto agressive style to counter act the thudding Guitar weilded chunks thrown at the audience with groove based chops and occassional technical licks.
All 5 Members write together in a Studio weekly and bring together textures of each song & stress the importance of melody, with some clean parts, with deep and meaningful lyrics based on a story about a man finding love in a mental asylum, the story starts here.
