Hyeena drops new album "Freedom From The Default"
Freedom From The Default, the debut album from Massachusetts-based post-metalcore band HYEENA, is out today on Innerstrength Records.
HYEENA was formed in 2019 by former Ligeia vocalist Keith Holuk, and drummer Austin Bryant, who were later joined by bassist Mike Verlizzo. Bryant has since left the band, now replaced by Julian Fernandez. Striving to go in a different direction than previous endeavors, the band aimed to create a post-metalcore sound with wild vocals, melodic singing, and energetic lyrics. They drew from their influences such as the Deftones, Gojira, and Of Mice And Men when they set about writing material, adding the occasional metalcore breakdown for good measure.
