Genre-fusing guitar virtuoso Hedras has today released his latest track, "Latin Blood" from his forthcoming album 'Angels', out on May 13 via Blood Blast Distribution. Prior to today's drop, Hedras released the music video for the album title track "Angels". Speaking on the inspiration behind "Latin Blood", Hedras shares: "'Latin Blood' has a humble story. While I was working as a cashier at a music store in Los Angeles, not my most fun days of life but valuable ones for sure, I used to grab the guitars and hide from the managers under the counters and just play a lot. One of those days the main riff of this song came to me, and I knew exactly the sound I was imagining in my head. I was listening to a Merengue piano, trumpets, and some urban Latin electronic beat in the back so went into my computer and produced the beat with those elements from scratch. I produced, composed, mixed, and mastered everything myself. I'm also using my new super versatile Cort Duality II with Fishman Fluence Classic Pickups for the main riffs, clean and distorted solos, and a sick 8-string Abasi Guitar that Tosin (from Animals As Leaders) gave me for the nasty dubstep drop."
