(PUNK) Three years have passed since the last Hysterese record, and these last years brought change to the band. All grew older, some got babies and some went different paths. So 2021 is a bit of a new era for Hysterese, personal and musicwise – with a new bass player, a new method of songwriting and more diverse influences which reflect in slightly new song vibes. The last same titled album already showed a glimpse of what might possibly happen while composing new material. Moritz and Helen split the composing and added a more morbid style – it got darker, and shows a more mature or adult approach to write intelligent, powerful songs.
Hystereses trademark, the twin lead vocals of Helen and Moritz loses its weight as Helen takes more and more the role of the lead singer. They have less stakkato riffing and more open, atmospheric guitar work filled with superb guitar-melodies. Kais precise, machine-like drumming, and Janas solid bass do the final tricks – one can explore more than a „one, two, three, four”-punkrock album.
Overall the seed they planted on their third record became a strong unique plant with ripe fruits which taste like darkness, melancholy, strength, anger, rage and fury. They created some sparkling düster-müster-popunk-diamonds, which are not afraid to take some detours through genres like Alternative-Rock or Postpunk.
If you dig the darkness of The Wipers, the explosivness of old Descendents records and the hits and melodies of your fav Blondie or Billy Idol songs, i’m sure you will dig this piece of Rock-Music.
