HYPNOGAJA
BELOW SUNSET
UNION STATE

Hypnogaja is a quintet whose melodic metal meanderings sound very similar to a cross pollination of Staind, Flaw, and Onesidezero. The outfit’s 13-track collection is big on sweeping choruses, rising and falling dynamic changes, and angst-ridden lyrics, as tracks like “Nothing Left to Give” and “Normal on the Outside” fall somewhere between nu metal’s rage and alternative metal’s artsy side. Armed with dollops of disenchantment, and brazen with a powerful musical delivery that employs churning guitars, shimmering piano, and hearty vocals, Hypnogaja take mope metal out of the outer reaches of darkness and give it a much needed energy boost.
