Hybrid (CD+DVD)

by Venturia

The amazing musicianship of Charly Sahona, Thomas James and Diego Rapacchietti is once again something to behold with the final sound being a blend between metal, prog, pop, classical, electronic music and the technical parts are even crazier.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Venturia released one of the hottest debuts of recent years with 2006’s “The New Kingdom”. Now the band has returned with another masterwork in “Hybrid” with the first pressing containing a bonus DVD. Building upon the unique sound heard on their debut, “Hybrid” is a fitting title for the numerous sounds that make up the Venturia sound in 2008. “Hybrid” sees Venturia’s music sounding even more modern, veering away from classical prog metal edge heard on the debut and delving into new territories. The majority of the change can be heard on the new songs arrangements with the addition of some ambient guitars and keyboards being treated in a trip-hop and electronic music style.

The balance between the male vocals of Marc Ferreira and female vocals of Lydie Robin are now equal and “Hybrid” saw Lydie involved in the writing of the lyrics for the first time. The bands two distinct vocal approaches help create the distinguished Venturia sound with Marc’s more aggressive style contrasting perfectly with Lydie’s touch of sensuality, passion, heart and soul. Lyrically most of the words were written by Charly Sahona with the main subjects covering the duality between heart and reason, the buddhist wisdom, art and transcendental idealism, addictive seduction. Lydie Robin also wrote some lyrics with Charly Sahona focus on the barbarian ritual of Excision in Africa in the song \"Why? This women\'s life\" .This song is one of the highlights of the album. Lydie\'s singing and the music of “Why?” have never been so intense. Lydie also wrote about the hypocrisy and the abuse of power politicians use in the song \"Swearing lies\".

The amazing musicianship of Charly Sahona, Thomas James and Diego Rapacchietti is once again something to behold with the final sound being a blend between metal, prog, pop, classical, electronic music and the technical parts are even crazier. Despite these changes fans of the bands debut will grasp the new album with open arms with the sound never being mistaken for anyone other than Venturia.

“Hybrid” was recorded at Artsonik studio, Delémont, Switzerland and produced by Charly Sahona and Diego Rapacchietti. The sound is modern, crisp and powerful yet sounding more organic than the debut – in short a killer production.

AMAZING!!!
I got introduced to this band by my bandmate back in the Philippines. All I could say is that their second album rocks! Perfect arrangements and musicianship. A very good blending of different syles of music and great technical writing aspects. I'll be waiting for the next album! I have the 1st(The New Kingdom) and after hearing it, it took my interests in Progressive Rock into a new level. Thank you Venturia!
