Get ready to embark on a mind-bending journey with Hemina’s fifth album, ‘Romancing The Ether’, out August 11, 2023 on Bird’s Robe Records.
‘Romancing The Ether’ is 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.
‘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.
The first video single ‘Revelations’ is out now, it is the conclusion to the conceptual universe of the albums ‘Synthetic’ through to ‘Night Echoes’.
The Australian progressive melodic metal quarter have earned a cult following for their signature syncopated grooves and multi-part vocal harmonies.
The new album sees them pushed to their limits – it features over 100 part choral vocal arrangements and for the first time, live orchestral strings and 8-string guitars.
Hemina have 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.
They have also performed internationally at Progpower Europe (Netherlands) and Euroblast (Germany).
Their previous four albums 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.
Accompanied by an immersive full-length album visualiser, the record serves as a multimedia experience to transport listeners to another world, at a time when a temporary escape is sorely needed.
The band will embark on a series of tour dates during 2023, beginning with shows in Sydney & Canberra, joining long time friends and recent Eurovision finalists Voyager.
