Hydra

Hydra was created in 1995 as project by A. "Titan" Xanthopoulos on guitars, playing oldschool primitive downtuned death-black metal. Due to some lazy members in the band, Hydra was laid on ice for a couple of years and during this time some reherseal tapes was recorded by Titan...

In 1999, Titan recruited the multi-talented musician Flame (guitars/bass) and the raw vocalist Erebus. Later on Tornado was taken in on drums. With this line-up Hydra recorded four demo cds: "Polemos", "Cursed Battlegrounds", "To Aima Emon" and "Tantalus". The music style had evolved to grim hellenic pagan metal and suited the band perfectly.

Hydra (Ger)

Whirlwind Times
Hydra was formed by Chris Diefenbach and Lisa Rieger in October 2013. The first ten songs, which primarily fall into the category of melodic metal, took shape within a matter of months. One thing was clear to both Lisa and Chris: this was song material with potential that simply had to be released. Both of the Regensburg musicians are old hands in the scene: Chris was a live guitarist for the band Burden on their 2011 Germany tour (to name one example) and Lisa has also seen many different corners of Germany with her former symphonic metal band and other musical projects.
