Deville – Hydra


Deville – Hydra
Small Stone – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Metal, Sludge
Rated: *****

Ye gods, these five star albums are just hitting from every angle at the beginning of this New Year like someone hit a gigantic bee’s nest full of heavy greatness. This time around we are treated to the third full-sized album by the Swedish Deville. Hydra is filled with grandiose metal tracks that have that sludge feel but move towards stoner and alternative rock just as easy. Their songs are sleazy and groovy hard-hitting masterpieces that show their skin first and slowly divulge every bit of their true colors. Catchy soulful tracks that are warm to the touch and hot to the ear. Stirring every fiber in your soul with their ever rolling drums and the tasty melodies; expertly drawn out by massive riffs and razor-sharp solos. And let’s not forget to mention the great vocals of Andreas Bengtsson; that hauls you along on every one of them hottdamn musical mountains!
