Enigmatic, charming, witty, intelligent, and energizing are just some of the adjectives you hear when people speak of Hyron Fenton of Hyro Da Hero. Often compared to predecessors like Rage Against the Machine and praised by the likes of Korn, Hyro is so much more than an act reminiscent of the glory days of rap and roll.
Straight out of Houston, Hyro now resides in LA when he is not burning up the road with his bandmates. His influences are all over the map- from rap to rock to actors. But it’s all of these ingredients that add to the swagger and sound that is a brand new take on the genre. Hyro comes from the rap end of rock and focuses on the beat. Where many acts have the music in their heads and then try to find the beat and the lyrical content, it seems Fenton works from the opposite end which achieves stunning results.
Hyro has been at the music game since 2007 when he released his first mix tape Gangsta Rock. His debut album Birth, School, Work, Death is produced by none other than Ross Robinson of Korn, At The Drive In, Blood Brothers, Deftones, Soulfly, and Slipknot fame. Obviously, Hyro takes no prisoners when it comes to seeking world domination with his craft. Currently Hyro Da Hero is wowing audiences on The Warped Tour here in the US, but is well seasoned at touring the world. He has stunned audiences in Canada, the UK, Australia, and will be headed to Japan in August. Everyone we spoke with at Warped said ‘you have to check out Hyro’. The audience in Pittsburgh ate up the performance that featured high-flying antics and a super charged set, that left not only the band, but the audience breathless.
Thanks to Nightwire.net and Hyro’s management team, PMM was able to conduct an exclusive interview with Hyro on his tour bus which you can check out here in its entirety.
You owe to yourself to check out Hyro Da Hero (official website) and download Birth, School, Work, Death. Hyro is currently on the Warped Tour and will hit the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan August 18.
