LYBRIA are a Alternative/Progressive/Space Rock Band from Illinois USA. Who play very loud music with Grunge and Alt Metal influences.
LYBRIA released their debut EP "Cycles" in 2010.
The EP is on for 5 songs and runs for a storming 27 minutes. This is an excellent release. The longest track "Debris" is on for 7.51 mins and is very epic indeed.
The production on this EP is excellent. The members are excellent musicians as well.
1st Track - "Emergency Room" gets things off to a thunderous start with some great guitar riffs and heavy hitting drumming. This is Space Rock at some of it's finest.
2nd Track - "Wells" starts quietly then kicks in with a heavy guitar riff that reminds me of early Cave In material. A hugely entertaining start to this excellent EP.
3rd Track - "So Far From Lonely" carries on with the heavy and dreamy space guitar riffs. The vocals are outstanding on this track. Very mellow and powerful at the same time. Heavy guitars and drumming which add to an already eerie atmospheric atmosphere.
The last two tracks "Johnny" and "Debris" are the best tracks on this EP. Both on for 5.44 mins and 7.51 mins respectively.
"Johnny" is the heaviest track on the EP and there are fast and furious guitar riffs from the start. You get a mixture of sounds from different genres - Space, Grunge, Prog Rock all done superbly into one outstanding song.
The last track "Debris" is the best track on the album. As its epic in length and in scope as well. Loud, Quiet, Hypnotic and with some excellent outstanding haunting vocals.
An excellent release which you need to own in your collection. You can download this amazing release from BandCamp on their famous pay-as-you-want type deals. Even 0.
