Some more news to share about the band here:

Vancouver, BC based Test Your Metal Records is proud to announce its entry into the mosh pit on the international metal scene with its first signing of Brazilian power metallers HIBRIA for the North American release of their fifth and upcoming self-titled full length due out on August 7th, 2015 with album pre-order available here.

“I am very excited to announce the launch of my new record label ‘Test Your Metal Records’.  After playing in bands and touring for the past 15 years I’ve developed the relationships and connections to be able to help others in the Canadian and worldwide music scene.  I hope to bring more international acts into Canada and spread the Canadian metal internationally to show the world what we have to offer.  I have some amazing bands and an amazing team to work with me, so I just want to thank you all in advance and together we will keep Heavy Metal alive!” comments Test Your Metal Records owner Grant Truesdell.

This is a very strong debut from a band that has a history of playing the scene in Brazil and other parts of the world as you would have read above, debut with Test Your Metal Records is what I was referring too. Clean singing throughout and some tight musicianship as well.

The above video "Life" is very powerful and has some great vocals and some sounds of Bon Jovi & Queensryche in certain parts of the song.

The album starts off with a song called "Pain" the album ends with the same song , however the difference here is this is not a remix, instead the karaoke version.

The band will be embarking on  a North American tour with Unleash The Archers with who Grant Truesdale is a member of the band and the owner of Test Your Metal Records they will be here together October 31, 2015

I find it a thrill to have been added to be able to review for this exciting venture and will do my best to help promote the bands on the label and the label itself as it has a great idea to help promote Heavy Metal worldwide.

Overall those that like tight musicianship and clean singing I think you will enjoy this--this has something for everyone as there is one song which is heavier than the rest and that is "Legacy" some heavier singing , the chorus gets lighter in the vocal approach --shows a good range.

Thank you for reading this
