The band’s approach to music is based around fun and release. Fun in the context of their motto “If it’s not fun, there’s no point on doing it”. Release in the context where every member in this band find here a place and environment to release all the stress, anger, sadness, etc.
Their music style is wedged between the crevices of rock, grunge, metal with almost unintentional pop choruses. Yet, they have been told many times that we have a “nice, heavy sound”. This came from the mix of influences of every member of the band, which can be from progressive to punk rock, from alternative indie to metal.
In essence, all of this revolves around one simple factor, they love to play live. they like to rattle the inflammatory issue of the moment with their lyrics. Pick their topics very carefully, and they like music to relate not only to them, but everybody’s daily lives and current times, and therefore our lyrics relate to the importance of the moment in history are going through.
Their main drive is ultimately to entertain their fans, and to stick together like family and keep creating beautiful, noisy and aggressive Rock N’ Roll and have fun on stage, and that can be seen quite effectively when they play live.
Hadrian started out being a 5-piece band in 2012, this became a difficult line-up to keep, since every member has a full-time job. From the original line-up, only 2 members are still present today and became a 4-piece band, and it was all worth it to find the perfect combination to create the Hadrian.
After the big shuffle around the members, Hadrian hadn’t yet played live. The baptism of fire that welded the band together ended up being Hard Rock Café Piccadilly London, to a full room (about 200 people) we played Hard Rock Rising (band competition).
From that point they kept rehearsing, writing new material and playing live every chance they had, and even got to play in some really iconic venues, for example Cargo or The 100 Club.
Presently they are recording of their next album, which will reveal a darker, heavier and more aggressive side of Hadrian and it is the road they are intending to take right now, since they have found “their sound”.
In the future, Hadrian intend to record an album every year, taking advantage of the prolific period of the band, since we have a lot of song ideas for the future and how we should approach the next stages.
