… Oh my! Can a three-song EP be the record of the year? After listening to Hyvmine’s Fight Or Flight, all I can say is fuck yes! Where the hell have these guys been hiding?
Led by Al Joseph (guitars/vocals), Hyvmine are getting in the ring and about to pummel all comers for the heavy metal heavy belt. With three songs that clock in at close to 30 minutes, Fight Or Flight delivers everything any music fan is looking for in an absolutely killer record. Reminding me at times of Living Colour, Faith No More, and King’s X, I’m already calling this a possibility for the top 5 of my top 10 of 2018. The songwriting on this is so good it’s giving me goosebumps on top of my goosebumps. Joseph is definitely going to become a major name in the future. When you realize that what you are hearing comes from a trio prepare to have your mind blown like never before.
Find this. Buy this. Play the fuck out of this. And, Hyvmine? When you’re playing mega-domes? Remember, King Rhino championed you in the early days and backstage my ass. I owe you guys a beer.
