'Malachite Skies' is a superb debut album, lighter and darker elements combine with outstanding vocals, musicianship and orchestrations to provide ten tracks of quality Symphonic/Melodic Metal music with a diversity that is refreshing. Highly Recommended Listening.
By Vethorm
And there is this special song which is quite epic and 8:30 minutes long: Harvest Neptune - this song is simply great and one of my highlights! My personal number one is the song CC-Swath of Destruction“, because in this track you can hear a duet with the guest singer LIV KRISTINE (LEAVES' EYES).

Everything here comes from the top drawer driving this band towards the premier league of female fronted metal.

...definitely a very promising newcomer and it will be exciting to look forward to next releases
By Thomas Becker
Hydra has everything a band in this metal genre needs. Lots of symphonic elements and keyboards, nice sounding, not too cheesy melodies, catchy power-choruses (…) Definitely, Malachite Skies is a very good alternative to the new NIGHTWISH album (...)
