Hedras – Pagans Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising progressive metal band, HEDRAS, from LA, USA. We have reviewed their fantastic song, PAGANS, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.


Hedras is a promising progressive/fusion rock band I discovered two months ago with this epic song, Pagans, released as a single and a long-play album in 2020. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Hedras has started their careers with a long-play album called; Atoms and Space in 2011. Since then, the band released two more albums, The Impressionist (2017) and Pagans (2020), and five singles, The Millenial (2019), Downtown (2019), Innate Behavior (2020), Pagans (2020), Dissipation (2020), and Parallel Dreams (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Hedras is certainly one of the most impressive bands I discovered in 2020, who shows huge potential with their musicianship, songwriting abilities, and understanding of music. When I listened to the song Pagans for the first time, I was quite impressed not only by the technical, but also the musical level of everything. Although I am not a big fan of the modern djent sub-genre, I couldn’t resist and ignore their work of art. They immediately earned their place in Metalhead Community.

Pagans is a badass progressive/fusion track that carries numerous inspirations from Rush, Dream Theater, Animals as Leaders, and Joe Satriani. The composition is mostly based on their guitar track, yet we don’t hear anything typical or usual. They have a specific musical dimension that separates them from the rest of the world. When I think about their ideas, elements, and sentences in this song, it reminds me of Space where there are no boundaries or limitations. Hedras has this fantastic thing about their music.

We live in an era where making a difference with your instrumental music is more challenging than ever been. There are tons of incredible people out there making incredible music, and artists/bands are not only competing in their local or national but in a global scene. In this example, Hedras immediately reminded me of one of the most revolutionary bands of our modern era, Animals as Leaders. However, I have always been a person who is more on the musical side of things, so I don’t believe Hedras and Animals as Leaders have anything in common more than admiration and inspiration. When you look at Hedras’ discography, you’ll understand what I mean.


Technically, Pagans has top class standards and modern-sounding vibes. I enjoyed every second of this song, and I have nothing negative to mention here at all. Everything is very well recorded, balanced, and engineered. It sounds clean, clear, focusing on details, and in great harmony. Specific bands like Hedras need a specific approach when it comes to mixing/post-production of their music. The producer here has done a fantastic job in this example where I can easily hear the guitar players’ picking, in other words, all the necessary details that people would like to hear from a specific band with exceptional technical abilities.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am impressed by the potential of Hedras. After everything that I saw and heard from them, I can say that they simply deserve to be heard and recognized. I don’t see these brilliant young American gentlemen missing success in their professional careers unless they decide to give up. Great band, strongly recommended!
