Findland's Lion Music continues to church out some of
the most fascinating guitar music around. While not
all the artists in their stable are as awe-inspiring
as, say, OHM, you can at least count on the majority
of their catalogue to make you stop and listen twice.
Hybrid Freak Division is one of the bands that makes
this possible. Here, this three-piece locks into some
serious groove and holds on tenaciously, melding funk,
jam band music and fusion with authority and grace.
As with any band worth its salt playing this kind of
music, Hybrid Freak Division display a sense of humor
as they whip up tracks such as "Poon-Tang Twostep,"
"Nippe Signal" and others. Gorgeous leads, gorgeous
grooves, Hybrid Freak Division is a band that deserves
a rabid following. Can't wait to hear more.
