Introducing Hedra:

Formed in 2014 by guitarist Kamil Korsak with Jim Marten on vocals, Hedra released their first EP, Mind Dimension in 2016. The band lineup has been through various changes in the intervening years, but with James Redden joining in 2022 to bash the skins and Daniel Older taking over bass duties in 2023, Hedra are on a mission to bring their music to every corner of the UK and beyond.


With influences ranging from Iron Maiden to Muse to Soundgarden to Mastodon, the unmistakable and individual sound which conjures images of dark dystopian times makes Hedra stand out from the crowd while also appealing to those outside of the metal sphere.The band have a strong work ethic and an insatiable hunger to perform live, entertain, share their music, and help the metal scene become stronger and more open to everyone. Passionate performances captivate audiences, with the camaraderie displayed by the band adding to the overall sense of belonging.


Marten is an assured and commanding frontman who rides the waves created by Korsak and Older’s intricate guitars and Redden’s drums; always leaving a crowd wanting more. Hedra have released numerous singles and two further EPs since Mind Dimension, Polaris in July 2022 and The PeckingOrder in November 2022.


Each EP the band has released has been based on themes that tell a story. The most recent release centres around the handling of the pandemic. Hedra won band of the year for their performance at Mearfest Flame 2nd Sep 2023 which was one of the many highlights of 2023.


The Fear Inside:

This is the first single from the upcoming album “Ruin Everything” which hopefully will be released later this year (planned date December 2024). The track is about letting go of the fears and anxieties we all face in today's society and is lighter in approach to HEDRA’s usual style with a more commercial arrangement in sounds & influence of bands such as Funeral for a Friend of the emo era or even Nickelback for their chart toppers of the early 2000’s.


Everything in the current social climate is such a struggle and it sometimes feels there are more bad days than good days. ‘The Fear Inside’ track points to that and focuses on letting go of the things that you struggle with the fears that hold you back to allow you to contemplate on the important things that matter to us as individuals and music is hope for all right now so the song is attempting to reach you all in its stature” says Daniel who joined HEDRA in 2023. Most things happen in life for a reason and the band want to highlight this with the modern struggles you all face in your minds due the growing financial struggles of individuals and businesses alike affecting many grass root venues. 


Drums were recorded live at Parlour Studios Kettering in September 2023 , famous for working with metal bands of a dystopian nature such as ‘Napalm Death’ completed the home recorded Guitars, Bass & Vocals over a 12 month writing period the track also features guest vocals by Craig Keeling from Essex melodic experimental metal band ‘Junction 28’ as a last minute addition to the song, ‘the imagery is dark but the music is the light’ this song kicks off the concept of what’s yet to come for HEDRA over the next few months!
