The idea of mixing hip-hop with rock is not a new one. However, there have been very few artists that have made it work. Beastie Boys and Rage Against The Machine took elements of both to create something fresh and unique that was wildly successful. However, for every success case, there have to be at least 100 failed attempts. So, when I got a copy of ‘Birth, School, Work, Death‘ from Hyro Da Hero, I admit that I was very skeptical. Could Hyro pull it off? Find out after the jump.
Bloody-Disgusting has scored an exclusive interview with up and coming LA hip-hop artist Hyro Da Hero. Hyro stands out by spitting fast and furious rhymes with a full rock band behind him. This band consists of Daniel Anderson (Idiot Pilot), Paul Hinojos (At The Drive In, Sparta, The Mars Volta), Cody Votolato and Mark Gajadhar (both from The Blood Brothers). His upcoming album, ‘Blood, School, Work, Death’, was produced by Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot, At The Drive In).
