NEWS: Hypno5e Release New Song And Announce Movie

French progressive metal masters Hypno5e just released a stunning new song called “Cuarto del Alba”! The song is to be featured in a film produced by singer and guitar player Emmanuel Jessua. For this project, Hypno5e seem to have turned down their amps and taken up the acoustic guitar. Said corresponding film was made in Bolivia, and the soundtrack is provided by A Backward Glance on a Travel Road, which is Hypno5e‘s acoustic side project featuring the same members. The singer had to say the following to the project:

The idea of this movie was born in the Amazon forest, precisely in Rurenabaque, on the terrace of a small hotel on the Beni river shore, tells Jessua. I was only 10 years old and had been living with my family in Bolivia for more than five years. I was experiencing life with an incredible intensity, in a fantastic environment… with this film, I wanted to capture the constant exceeding of limits that I feel when I’m in Bolivia: the limits between the gods and the human, between sanity and madness, between the past and the present. It is in the religious and musical syncretism of the Oruro carnival (where my mother used to dance each year) that this exceeding of limits can be witnessed the best, where myth and reality mingle, and where the protagonists lose their sensation of time or space.

Listen to “Cuarto del Alba” below!
