Special thanks to our beloved friend and master of sounds Julian Rocco of Rocco Recordings for banning our ideas and emotions onto tape, to Ailin Stoyke for the mind-blowing artwork, and to the Immerhin Würzburg for providing us rooms at the venue during the recording sessions in dark pandemic times.

Last but not least, thanks to all our friends and fans out there for your unwavering support. It means the world to us!”

The heavy stoner rock trio Dryad was founded in Würzburg (Germany) in 2016. The band’s name is based on the legendary forest nymphs (dryads) of Greek mythology – a fusion of mankind and nature. In the spirit of this close entanglement, guitarist Alex, drummer Sebastian, and singer/bassist Michael combine their musical skills with well thought-out lyrics and create a mystical atmosphere that is shaped by the influences of Kyuss, Elder, Black Sabbath and MC5. Heavy stoner riffs are tightly interwoven with emotional melodies. Fuzzy psychedelic sounds are pulling the listener into gloomy worlds and the human-critical lyrics are thought-provoking.
