HYPNO5E bring the haunting tones of their unique brand of avant-garde progressive metal up close with the physical release of A Distant Dark Source Experience, a streaming concert recorded earlier this year, consisting of a full performance of their latest studio album.

Consisting of a double vinyl, a DVD and HD download, A Distance Dark Source Experience is a most complete physical manifestation of the original live-stream, which was recorded at the Paloma in Nîmes, an 1800-seat theatre venue featuring 360° video equipment.

The visual feels like a natural continuation of the music video of "On The Dry Lake". A three-dimensional experience of the band playing live that comes as close to watching the band play for real as it can be.

With just the four musicians in the band playing, the lack of layering makes the melodies come out even better, yet the band seems to lose nothing of their ferocity.

Not only is this live experience a lasting testimony of Emmanuel Jessua's proficiency as a songwriter, but also of his incredible technical ability as a singer, being able to consistently cover the chugging guitars and fierce drumming in a hazy shroud of thick growls throughout the record.

As strong as the band is in their loudness, it is in the quiet parts of A Distant Dark Source that HYPNO5E truly shines.The way the guitars hang on to them during the quiet parts, it transforms this cinematic experience into something fragile and real.

In a way it makes the darkness less supernatural, and more human. A Distant Dark Source Experience is a fitting tribute the cinematic qualities of this band and a most definitive rendition of the material from their latest studio record.
