Columbus, Ohio’s Hydrone delivers a frenetic electric shock fuzz storm of “psychotic garage rock” and just released their first proper album, Death Perception, via Clean Demon Records yesterday. Fuzz wizards Mario Malachi (guitar/vocals), Peter Brown (bass/vocals), and Brian Baker (drums) comprise this swollen, glorified rhythm section of a band (all three members are primarily drummers) with a sonic assault on unexpecting ears. The band promises a slew of home-recording tapes and a follow-up album is not far behind.
Listen to “Toadlicker” here.
“I remember hearing the term depth perception for the first time and repeating death perception by mistake,” Malachi says. “I remember when my hamster died and I understood death. This album is Hydrone’s baby photos, the first glimpse of what could be. What comes after someone sees death, but doesn’t touch it?”
