Genre-fusing guitar virtuoso Hedras has today released a new single and music video “Angels“ (out via Blood Blast Distribution). The song is the title track from his newly announced forthcoming album ‘Angels’, out on Friday, May 13. With intricate fretwork laid over urban beats, Hedras showcases his unique style on his Cort Mutility guitar as seen in today’s music video (available later this year). Speaking on the release, mastermind Hedras Ramos shares:
“I’m a big fan of urban Latin music, Trap, and EDM. I always imagined combining those styles with prog Metal, so I had to dive deeply into electronic production and learn how to cohesively put all those elements in synergy with my own guitar ideas and create songs that have a meaning and a vibe. “Angels” is the result of that and part of a full album in that vein.”
Established in Dallas, TX, multi-instrumentalist Hedras Ramos began his musical career at age 6 by learning to play the drums. It wasn’t until 2005 however (at age 13) when Hedras became interested in learning guitar.
