Hyne at 48h Wilhelmsburg Festival

That was a great evening! THE Stoner band from Hamburg really rocked the night. HYNE were performing in the frame of 48h Wilhelmsburg, a festival, specifically for Hamburg, and to be more specific: here occur only bands that are related to the Elbe islands.

Hamburg's famous river, the Elbe, is divided into Northern and Southern Elbe, which together form the port area with the Elbe islands. In particular, the district is called Wilhelmsburg. You're not from around here? Then you stay out! So it is true at least for the bands. And HYNE rehearses in Wilhelmsburg. Luckily, because a Hamburg festival has to include these guys absolutely! For one or another, HYNE may be a familiar name also outside of Hamburg. In the past years, HYNE shared the stage with important bands from the stoner scene e. g. FATSO JETSON, LONLEY KAMEL, GRANDLOOM and MONKEY 3. They also played great festivals like STONED FROM THE UNDERGROUND 2013. For 2014 a release tour and also lots of festival shows are planned.


After a great year in 2013, the boys from Hamburg start the year 2014 with a new album, which was presented this night. Nine tracks define the modern stoner sound of the band. The five guys present a mix of blues, rock and heavy 70's riffs. Their new album, ‘Elements’, brings big stoner hymns, groovy songs and even some laidback tunes. So, this was the evening to present a varied package. In addition to the songs from the new album, "old" classics as ‘Poor Man’ were played of course, but also a brand new song that is currently in the development phase and so far only in the rehearsal room. It is indeed not uncommon that a new song is firstly presented to the “family”. And it was played with success, the “family” welcomed it enthusiastically.


HYNE and its audience is very down to earth, not to forget the omnipresent Hamburg humour. No rest without sacrificing fun! It was more than important to mention over and over again: "We're HYNE! We're from Hamburg!" (well, more or less this was clear anyway because of the festival setting...). Stoner Rock from Hamburg is fast, dirty and loud! Stoner Rock from Hamburg is HYNE!

For 2014, a release tour and also lots of Festival shows are planned. Who does not know these guys really missed out! Only the technology could not quite convince. The rock concerts were held somewhere in nowhere in a biker club. (Evil tongues say, everything south of the Northern Elbe no longer belongs to Hamburg.) Accordingly, the implementation of lighting and sound equipment was kind of inexperienced.
