3,5 out of 5

The Italian 6 piece Hybrid Circle has an interesting sound, they blend progressive metal with melodic death metal and electronica. Imagine Pagan´s Mind meets Soilwork on a picnic at the home of Vangelis and you´ll get the new album "A matter of faith".
They debuted with "Before history" in 2012 and last year, HC started working on their 2nd album which will be available as free download from June 30th.
I embrace the crystal clear sound and just adore the razorsharp guitars, this is a metal force to be reckoned with. As a bonus we get a powerful cover of "Head up" from Deftones 2nd album "Around the fur" but it´s hardly one of the highlights on this 44 minute long album.
My favorites can be found amongst this band´s own material such as "Science fiction", "My twins" and "The Parallax".
Play it loud!
