Pumping it at Valve Bar

It was nice to play our first proper show with Nathan not doing a support. Very fun and quite different to playing at the Tivoli! We made best use of the small stage and it was a really raw one for us especially vocally but we were just reveling in the vibe and loving playing together.  It was also our first ever show as a 4 piece and whilst it was different, it felt bloody right. We’ll still be looking for a keyboardist but not until we find the perfect fit with a great voice too!

 

Cheers to Divine Ascension, Fenrir and Lycanthia. The guys in DA especially are the nicest you could come across. To many shows together, dudes!

Thanks also to Greg at the Valve for putting it on and showing us a good time.

Phill Eltakchi Leaves Hemina

It is with sadness that we announce the departure of our keyboardist Phill Eltakchi from Hemina. We have shared some amazing experiences over the past 6 years playing in Hemina with Phill and wish him every success in his future musical endeavours.

Hemina is looking for a new keyboardist. We’ll post more in the coming days.

Uriah Heep – Our First Gig in Ages

So we got to play with the mighty Uriah Heep last Thursday and it was fun as hell. It was also the first gig with our new drummer Nathan McMahon and he killed it.

Hemina’s First Music Video

So here it is, ‘Freedom’; our first music video and first single off our new album ‘Nebulae’. We would like to thank Adam Underwood, Andrew Craig, Trent Mulligan, Shane Ian Leadbeater, Luke Mickan and Reece Denton for lending their faces to be desecrated.
Our album is out on Bird’s Robe Records on 19 August 2014 so make sure that you preorder it if you like what you hear, and before this gets tl;dr core, we hope you enjoy every gyration, thrust, interrogation and probe from the bottom (lol) of our hearts.

Preorder the Album – It’s Finally Coming!

Australian progressive metal outfit HEMINA have partnered with Sydney-based label Bird’s Robe Records for the release of their second album.
With a worldwide fan base and their strongest material to date captured on record, the band will bring their music to a broader audience with the release of ‘Nebulae.’
Featuring their trademark vocal harmonies, intricate and powerful guitar-playing and heavy rhythm sound, the album captures their best songwriting and production to date.
Hemina vocalist, Douglas Skene, released a brief statement earlier today:

“It’s been such a long time coming and there has been so much going on behind the scenes trying to make this release right that it feels like such a release to be able to share it with you. We’d been working on the album since the end of 2012 as we felt we had to follow up ‘Synthetic’ with something a little more direct and immediate. We’re all very prolific writers and some of you may recall reading that was we had written an album called ‘Venus’, this is indeed true and is awaiting the time to be recorded in the way to do its concept and vision justice but that is a different story.

We are now here with ‘Nebulae’, our new baby. We worked with brilliant Australian artist Tristan Tait to create what we see as classic progressive ideals brought forth into the modern world and we couldn’t be happier with what he was able to do. The album centers around lucid dreaming and the quest for transcendence (whatever that may mean to you) and is something of a prequel arc to the existing Heminal lyrical world. Things aren’t as strictly narrative this time and this dreamlike space fantasia that we seem to be obsessed with has worked so well together with the album’s dynamic curve. We took things into our own hands with nearly everything this time and I think it has made all the elements of this record stronger than what we’ve achieved in the past as we were in the driver’s seat the whole time. This album is no doubt a different sound for Hemina but I think it’s us at our best on all fronts; the production is better, the playing is better, the songs are definitely better – it is more us. It’s 2 months now till it’s out and I look forward to the day that our supportive fans can load up the CD or their iPod’s and share this journey with us.

I also could not be happier with the choice for us to do the predominate majority of the release through Bird’s Robe Records, who has served my other band Anubis very well with generous passion for their artists’ music and astute attention paid to their artists’ needs and strengths. I look forward to seeing where this new chapter leads us. We are in the company of champions such as Voyager, Toehider and sleepmakeswaves.

We also have a song from ‘Nebulae’ which is available for your listening pleasure on Bandcamp – It’s called ‘Freedom’. It’s something of a progressive call-to-arms if you will. We hope you enjoy it and keep your eye out for the video in the coming weeks.

From the bottom of our hearts in Hemina, thank you for staying along for the ride – See you at the next stop!”

Bird’s Robe Records’ Director Mike Solo released the following statement

“I’m very happy to announce that Bird’s Robe is going to be releasing the new Hemina album ‘Nebulae’ internationally.

You may already know Hemina’s vocalist Doug Skene from his formidable work with Anubis, but the whole band have been long-time supporters of Bird’s Robe; and consistent with my personal philosophy, it’s really nice to be working with such good people on an excellent album. There’s so much good music coming out of Australia, Hemina have the passion and enthusiasm to match their talent, which is fantastic.”

Nebulae is out August 19 through Bird’s Robe Records

Cover Art on the Way

So after a big set of ordeals, Tristan Tait (www.tristantait.net) is locked into to do our cover art which will be a beautiful 4 panel digipak. Adam Underwood helped us with our photos too and they’re looking sick.

Can’t wait to share Nebulae with you!
