As Blabbermouth revealed earlier, the band singer Sharon Del Adel and her husband guitarist Robert Westerholt praised Howard Jones, Taria Turunen and Xzibit
for their contributions to the record. "Xzibit is amazing,"
said Robert, just for Sharon to chip in, "'And We Run' song is about how you've got to live your life now. He's rapping at full force on this song, it's really heavy.
"Xzibit brings a new element to our music that we've never had before!"
she adds. "It's a new cross-over and we love it!"
Den Adel also shared her thoughts on other guest musicians, giving massive props to Tarja and Howard Jones. "The way
[Tarja] delivers those high melody lines left us all speechless. We had a great time, and the fans responded beyond our expectations,"
the vocalist said, just to focus on Jones.
"I always loved Howard's voice,"
she says. "He makes the song even heavier than it already is. That song is one of my favorite songs on the record and one of the fastest we've ever written. It has the most bass drums we've ever used, too, and a very fast riff which we doubled with synths."
Discussing the overall record, Westerholt added: "It's like us - undefinable! What's more, 'Hydra' is a perfect title for our new album, because like the monster itself, the record represents the many different sides of our music."
The band's sixth album is scheduled to drop on January 31 through Nuclear Blast Records.
