Kansas City's own HYBORIAN sign to Season of Mist


HYBORIAN Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of HYBORIAN. The Kansas City-based heavy metal riff machine (Martin Bush - Guitar, Vocals, Ryan Bates - Guitar, Vocals, Justin Rippeto - Drums, and Anthony Diale - Bass) will reissue their acclaimed debut 'Vol. 1' through Season of Mist in early 2018.

Regarding their signing HYBORIAN comment: "Hyborian is beyond excited to be signing with Season of Mist. SOM is home to some of our favorite bands of all time, and we feel incredibly proud to be able to work with a label that has been so very crucial to creating the landscape of modern heavy music."

'Vol. 1' was recorded by the band at their self-built studio, mixed by Justin Mantooth at Westend Studios (RADKEY, GODMAKER), and mastered by Nick Zampiello (TORCHE, ISIS, OLD MAN GLOOM, TRAP THEM) at New Alliance East. It was originally released by the band (in conjunction with friends The Company KC) in March 2017 and tells the tale of an extra-dimensional, cloaked being called "The Traveller".



The band explains the concept of 'Vol. 1'; "Hyborian-Volume I is a collection of stories from the dawn of humanity, events that occurred before the advent of the written word. It is the first in a series of legends from different epochs as told by a figure named The Traveller. The Traveller is a being that exists outside of humanity's understanding of space and time. He is the source of all life in the universe, but is not omnipresent. He wanders the cosmos, visiting and recording times of great strife or hardship, great suffering or great triumph. We are his chosen mouthpiece on Earth, so we relate those stories, whether from far in the past or far in the future."

HYBORIAN have been touring extensively since their 2015 formation. In addition to tours with GODMAKER and on their own, they have supported the likes of POWER TRIP, ACID KING, MUTOID MAN, WEEDEATER, IRON REAGAN, VEKTOR, WHORES and many more in the Midwest.

What the press is saying about HYBORIAN:

"To be blunt, Hyborian is a band you're going to want to start following." - Metal Injection

"Hyborian not only manages to live up to their grand namesake, but they also conjure metal gods... To put it simple, Hyborian is awesome and you better start paying attention to their furious riffage and crushing rhythms." - Nerdist

"A superb debut album . . . an impressive debut album indeed" - The Sludgelord

"There’s much that many stoner/sludge bands could learn from this fresh act... ...they’ve taken the strongest elements and merged it successfully into something that works for them, and ultimately, the listener as well. It’s fun, it’s heavy – much potential lies here as the band continues to hone their sound." - Dead Rhetoric

"First, the sonic comparisons are simple and obvious, but does the band do what they do well enough to warrant investigation? Second, if the bands from which that influence are being drawn have progressed beyond their early sounds and aren’t looking in the rear view any time soon, as it appears to be the case here, is it ok to embrace that which reminds us of said era? The answer to both questions is ‘yes’ and ‘yes.’ Put another way, it doesn’t matter that Hyborian sound like someone else, they just sound good." - Decibel Magazine

"You like giant-sized, fuzzed out, hard-hitting riffs, right? And memorable songs? Then I suspect Hyborian: Volume I, the band’s debut album, will be for you." - Metalsucks

"Vol. I is a superb debut album and hopefully we will see more from Hyborian in the future. An impressive debut album indeed." - Outlaws of the Sun

"Dear Hyborian brothers, I am so freaking proud of your guys! You guys deserve it 10 fold! We can't expect anything less with such amazing talent and crushing metal music mayhem." -Brian Biggerstaff, The Gauntlet

Hyborian is perhaps the most promising band to come out of Kansas City in a decade. -Ken Larson, The Gauntlet
