Who's got guts? Looking for a talented singing bassist for a kick-ass trio, all originals, 0 interest in covers, I like to create too much!


“Modern rock generally means "rock with half a riff and plenty of weak, poppy conventions, big choruses, and an over-reliance on forced melodies heard ad nauseam on crap radio." Hydra plays what modern rock should be: straight-up jams that've kept pace with the evolution of hard rock. Hydra has been playing together for two years, headlining the Hi-Fi, opening for national acts at the Odeon, and finding airplay on rock stronghold WMMS. Billy Morris (the former Warrant guitarist) mixed the disc -- really mixed it -- keeping four solid performances sonically distinct. Ennea nails a precarious, difficult balance between timeless and retro. "Home" sounds like a leftover from 1985, with a lumbering rhythm and awkward, barely-in-key harmonies. "Crawl" recalls Guns n' Roses, but is closer to Velvet Revolver, all slithering, badass groove that doesn't quite go over the top -- but Hydra sounds like it's close to figuring out how to get there. ”
