“Moving Ground” is the 6th work of HIBRIA’s discography, with a concept revolving around the Buddhist idea of impermanence, in a precise dialogue with the situation that the band found itself after two decades where they accumulated in their luggage a legacy of excellence within the metal world.
A legacy that cannot be transferred and reworked in these nine compositions, which irreproachably homogenized melodic power metal with progressive aspects, through the constant friction of technique and feeling.
The production of “Moving Ground” is organic and dry, sure to highlight the technical aggressiveness and the melodic potential of Hibria, right from the opening, with the title track. A fast track, with something different in the arrangements and killer chorus!
Smart and well-made transitions from intricate passages to melodic or climactic ones, also help to energize and oxygenate the sound. And at least in the first three compositions, the weight and the furious determination are what rule.
Following the title track, “A Life for Yourself” arrives as modern heavy metal with a rock n’ roll verve, while “The Shapeshifter” explodes in a more traditional power metal direction, even slipping into thrash metal in certain parts. instrumental.
An opening set that already brings you to your knees for the accurate attack!
