Having joined forces with the French label LISTENABLE RECORDS, Sybreed released their second album ANTARES in October 2007: this new LP was widely praised in the international metal press for its catchy tunes and the original use of melodies, and gave Sybreed the opportunity to open for PAIN for a couple of shows, and then embark with SAMAEL for a European tour in April 2008, to finally lead them to play at the METAL CAMP Festival in Slovenia.
Nevertheless, they soon felt the urge to work on a third album, which would push the limits of their music to an extreme end, and reinvent the Sybreed’s sound and turn it into something the band would describe as “Death Wave”. Drop, Ben and Kevin planned regular session during fall 2008, sessions which gave birth, in the end of the year, to twelve tracks of both sonic aggression and ethereal atmospheres where the organic and the electronic would be finally reconciled in one sole entity. To achieve the coming of this cybernetic monster, it was decided that only one artist could handle the difficult task to give it its final form: thus, Rhys Fulber, known for his work with Front Line Assembly, Fear Factory and Paradise Lost, became the man in charge of the mixing of this new album.
After a North-American Tour with Threat Signal in summer 2009, Sybreed unleashed in October of the same year his new synth-pop/industrial/metal bastard spawn called “THE PULSE OF AWAKENING”, a vicious mix of deadly grooves, furious metallic blast, technological shivers and icy melodies which was widely praised by the critics.
Sybreed disbanded in 2013. Kevin, Ales and Drop started their new band OPHYDIANS in 2014.
