Hyades are a thrash band from Italy that I really enjoy listening to. I discovered them a few years back on MySpace and they have the same effect on me today that they did back when I first discovered them. They’re an all-around fun band to listen to and I highly recommend them. Their motto is “Thrash Now Work Later” and that’s something that is evident in their music. They’re the kind of band that will have you banging your head, smiling and singing along all at the same time. A perfect example of this is the track “Megamosh” which can be found on album “And The Worst is Yet To Come.” The band is like the perfect mixed drink, add one part North American Bay Area thrash mix that with some Teutonic European style thrash, shake it all together, pour and enjoy yourself some Hyades. The band has some albums and merch for sale here. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed.
