    Damn... we have to say this is pretty exciting! We have never done vinyl before! This is a big one for us and a limited run of 100 Vinyls are going to be pressed of 'Night Echoes'. Vinyl is a very expensive undertaking especially for an Independent band so we'd appreciate any support we can get from you all!

    This is for a 4 panel gatefold vinyl with full lyrics and a beautiful artwork by Dominique van Velsen, a gorgeous layout by our very own Nathan McMahon.

    This is the definitive way to experience 'Night Echoes' as the album was structured and designed with the vinyl format in mind.

    All vinyl purchases come with a free download naturally :)

    Orders should be shipping out from Mid August (we hope that the dates do not shift from the plant).

about

A concept album focusing on a young man trying to navigate adolescence following the loss of his father to suicide. The next piece in the Heminal universe previously established by 'Synthetic', 'Nebulae', and 'Venus'.

Hemina are a 4 piece Progressive Metal band from Sydney, Australia. The band’s sound has been described as a unique combination of hard hitting syncopated grooves, lush synth backwashes, multi-part vocal harmonies, blistering memorable leads with a focus on songwriting and emotion.

The band have supported international bands Uriah Heep, Kamelot, Apocalyptica, Queensryche and soon-to-be Haken. They have shared the stage with Aussie legends, Caligula’s Horse, Chaos Divine, Voyager, Twelve Foot Ninja, Divine Ascension, Breaking Orbit among many others and simply live for the stage.

Hemina’s first three albums ‘Synthetic’, ‘Nebulae’ and 'Venus' were met with critical acclaim traversing many different sides of the band’s sonic spectrum from the complex and dark, to the immediate and uplifting. The release of 'Venus' saw Hemina taking their music overseas for the first time, culminating in performances at Progpower Europe (Netherlands) and Euroblast (Germany).

The band’s fourth album ‘Night Echoes' is the most collaborative work to date offering the eclectic flavours of what fans have come to expect in the past as well as a new palette and range of emotional expression never before heard from the group. Hemina return with a more concise 45 minute concept album exploring adolescence, nostalgia, grief, and loss in the 21st century with a thematic arc to accompany and elaborate on their previous conceptual output.

‘Night Echoes’ is Hemina at their most emotional and melodic without ignoring the aggressive and venomous side that keeps the music in balance. With a powerful modern production and mix crafted by Skene at Ploughman Studios with audiophile mastering from Ermin Hamidovic at Systematic Productions (Periphery, Devin Townsend, Plini, Architects) – this is Hemina at their best.

Track Name: We Will
Growing up I was fixated on starships on the silver screen
A future where we all seemingly got along
Content to explore...

Will we?

Will we ever leave home?
Will we know the unknown?
Will we?

I sometimes can't help but feel I'm on the losing team
Will it be 2035 with nothing left to show but division?

Will we learn to admit when we are wrong?
Will we?
Will we stand the test of time or die?

Will we?
We will!
