Get ready to embark on a mind-bending journey with Hemina‘s fifth album, “Romancing the Ether,” the epic conclusion to their conceptual story that has spanned their entire back catalogue. Explore the continuation of the adolescent’s story from “Night Echoes,” the child of the characters developed in their previous albums, “Synthetic,” “Nebulae,” and “Venus.” This album delves into the innermost motivations of family, meaning, and belonging through a psychological and spiritual journey. The 35-minute track is divided into 6 movements, each exploring the depths of the human psyche in a unique way.
Immerse yourself in Hemina‘s signature syncopated grooves, multi-part vocal harmonies, and melodic signatures that are pushed to their limits. This album features over 100-part choral vocal arrangements and for the first time, live orchestral strings and 8-string guitars. “Romancing the Ether” is a genre-bending experience that draws influences from Neo-Soul, World Music, Ambient, and Psytrance. The result is a cathartic musical journey that is as uplifting as it is dark and visceral.
Hemina is a Progressive Metal band from Sydney, Australia, that has shared the stage with international bands like Opeth, Haken, Queensryche, Protest the Hero, Kamelot, Apocalyptica, and Uriah Heep, as well as Australian legends like Caligula’s Horse, Chaos Divine, Voyager, Twelve Foot Ninja, Toehider, and Teramaze culminating in performances at Progpower Europe (Netherlands) and Euroblast (Germany). Their previous four albums, “Synthetic,” “Nebulae,” “Venus,” and “Night Echoes,” were met with critical acclaim and showcased the band’s versatility and range. With “Romancing the Ether,” Hemina has once again paired with audiophile mastering engineer extraordinaire Ermin Hamidovic at Systematic Productions (Periphery, Devin Townsend, Plini, Architects) delivering their most polished, dynamic production to date.
This album shows Hemina partnering again with Bird’s Robe Records after a long period of independence.
