Click to Buy Click to PlayRecorded at Tower of Doom with the guidance of the inimitable Eric Perlas, How Your Influence Betrays You is asprawling reflection of the long, timorous road that Hyper Crush has traveled, harking back to their humble, HyperCrush has once again made their mark by eschewing the familiar, continuing their decade-long tradition of pushingmusical boundaries and daring experimentation. Now, they lay bare ten years’ worth of creativity and emotion,simultaneously honoring their past while hinting towards the sound of things to come. Condensing a decade ofexperience into one album is a challenge, but this new release manages to encapsulate the trials and tribulationsthat have shaped them into the artists they have become. With How Your Influence Betrays You, Hyper Crush hastaken their fearlessness and inventiveness to the zenith, going beyond their influences to create something trulytranscendental. Hyper Crush have staked their claim at the forefront of the scene with their unique brand of aching sincerity andarresting melodies. Through unforgettable live shows, a devoted fan base, and their unrelenting DIY ethic, theband continues to shatter preconceptions of what an underground band can offer, garnering admiration from fansas well as from the bands that inspired them to forge their own path. Hyper Crush began as a three-piece band in1999, when founding members Steve Badiola (guitar, vocals) and Melvin Macatiag (drums) met in high school.Hyper Crush soon headed back into the studio, this time with new member Pacoy Fletchero (guitar) in tow. Theband made their way to Studio 101, in Malaysia, and recorded their second album, Every Moss and Cobweb. Thedistributed nationally by Warner Music Philippines, allowed Hyper Crush to reach even wider audiences; the publicHYPER CRUSHLike grunge in the early 1990s and nu-metal afterwards, emo may have been the mostprominent rock subgenre – or “sound,” if you will – of the past decade. While bothgrunge and nu-metal have offered a number of excellent, timeless acts that arguablytranscended both genres (e.g. Nirvana, Soundgarden, Deftones, System Of A Down),both have sadly been reviled as passing fads years after the fact, mainly because amajority of the bands both scenes left in their wakes offered nothing new in the way ofevolution, and listeners’ ears simply got pummeled by the seemingly endless airplay ofthese bands’ turgid yet unexceptional radio singles. (Most atrocious of all were thegroups that combined the worst elements of both grunge and nu-metal, like Creed andStaind, but let’s not get into that anymore.)Hyper Crush may be considered as the ones who lit the fuse for the local emo explosion,It’s 2011, and Hyper Crush has just released their third record plus-minutes of “As SilentAs Death” showcase Hyper Crush at their most convincing and relentless, as Badiolafuriously laments the fate of the environment and the human race while his bandmatessucceed in matching his sentiments with precision, power, and grace, including a rare,extended guitar solo by guitarist Pakoy Fletchero that doesn’t feel contrived or self-indulgent at all.
Hyper Crush are definitely worthy of kudos if only for sticking to their guns and playingthe kind of music they love, and after almost a decade of going at it, they’re still the bestthere is. And somehow, they’re still getting better.
