Today, Tuesday, August 9th, the madness begins! That’s right, the North American tour which see the Brazilian power metal band Hibria celebrating their 20th anniversary kicks off at the Upstairs Cabaret in Victoria, BC. The Test Your Metal Records group are SO thrilled to get things underway that today they’ve also taken things a massive step further…. Ladies and Gentlemen, Hibria are now streaming their new XX EP right here!

The Brazilian power metallers came together in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul in 1996 and since then have gone on to become a highly popular and successful band with five full-length albums and a live DVD. Hibria released their fifth and latest self-titled full-length last year via Test Your Metal Records for North America and continues the band’s venture with their very technical playing that’s fast, aggressive and catchy to follow 2013’s Silent Revenge.
