After a few listens I though this was another good, solid Within Temptation offering and then suddenly, the album hit me, it sunk in, and the revelation was “this is a classic album”. Strong, symphonic metal melodies from start to finish, some classic guitar riffs, enough solos to keep it interesting without being indulgent and some soaring keyboard/symphonic/choral effects to give it depth and grandeur. Also some of the best drumming I have heard on a WT album.
A superb album without doubt.

In 2004 "NIGHTWISH" released their album 'Once' which in my opinion is one of the best examples of this type of music 'Symphony Metal' as its know which is basically a fusion of Heavy Rock and Classical music, "Within Temptation" are of the same ilk (if you don't already know) and in 2011 released 'The Unforgiving' one of the best Symphony Metal albums ever too compete with Nightwish. So how good is 'Hydra'? well the jury's still out as to weather this is better or worse than 'The Unforgiven' but one thing is for sure.....its well written, well produced and well worth buying but perhaps not quite as good as their previous effort. Bottom line? If you like Symphony Metal you should enjoy this.

On the strength of the songs themselves, 'Hydra' is almost on par with ‘The Unforgiving’.

I don’t know why people complain about bands doing something a little different, in this case having a few guest vocalists. I think the selections are fantastic and show a willingness to just not plod along and churn out the same music CD after CD. This could have been another ‘Unforgiving’, another strong offering but no different from the previous CD – then people would have been complaining it sounds the same as ‘The Unforgiving’. ‘And We Run’ with Xzibit is nearly the best track on the CD for mine.

As a number of people have said, the production is lacking in depth, which is disappointing, and yes some would say unforgivable (the production staff are truly ‘The Unforgiven’ in this case, ha ha). However, it is what it is. Funny thing is sound systems these days have a few different settings, including the bass setting – how about try one of the other settings (e.g. Orchestra, Concert, Theatre, or if you have settings like ‘Pure Audio’, ‘All Channel Music’, ‘Neo Music’ or similar)…and dial up the bass. Amazing the difference this makes. Our sound systems in Australia have such settings…I am sure other systems in other countries have something similar, so give it a try…
