DIAMOND HYDE (Ex-Primer 55, Ex-Downthesun)

With a sonic assault as jagged as their moniker DIAMOND HYDE aim to deliver the heavy. Hailing from Kansas City, Diamond Hyde features seasoned veterans of the midwest scene, pulling heavy influence from bands such as High On Fire, Clutch, Corrosion of Conformity, Orange Goblin, Night Stalker, and Mastodon. Live, the band is firing on all cylinders and are known for their ferocious stage performances where they carve out their own aggressive sound; as tough as rusty nails.

Diamond Hyde have released 3 singles – Paid For In Blood, Children Bathed In Gold, and Crushed Under Foot; recorded by Andrew Nagorski (Marasmus) at Sand Man Audio. With a doomy, groove-metal edge, Diamond Hyde wield a hellacious and rugged tone, rougher than an armadillo’s ass. All tracks are available for streaming and download at https://diamondhyde.bandcamp.com/.

Adam Vinck (ex-Dogs of Delphi, ex-Reverse Evolution) deals a lethal dose of audible fury on-stage as vocalist and guitarist. The group is rounded out by beasts, Zakk Locksley (ex-Lysteria, ex-Aphos), Michael Christopher (ex-Dogs of Delphi, ex-Primer 55), and JD Brothers (ex-Kahlema, ex-Aphos, ex-Downthesun).
