Brazilian metallers Hibria have checked in with the following update about recruiting a new bass player:
"Benhur Lima is the newest member of Hibria! Since the invitation to the audition, Benhur told us how excited he was with the possibility of joining Hibria, a band he already knew and respected since the first time he watched a concert many years ago. He learned the songs very fast and, in the audition, despite all of the expectable anxiety, he played even the most difficult parts very well. Besides being a talented and versatile bass player, he also will reinforce the backing vocals on live performances, and showed something that is fundamental for us: attitude. Immediately, we have great plans for the new CD and we trust Benhur will overcome all the new challenges. Welcome aboard!"
Benhur also commented: "It has been a great surprise when I got a call from the band inviting me to an audition. Of course I accepted immediately! I got a little worried, but damn excited! It is not a secret to anyone who has ever talked to me about Hibria it was the first band that really impressed me when I saw them live, not just musically but also because of their metal attitude on stage. When I met the guys, I realized that besides being excellent musicians, they are really cool! The vibe was the best and playing with them was wild! A true privilege, for real! It is a great honor to become part of one of the best Heavy Metal bands Brazil has ever produced, and I will do my best to be sooner than soon headbanging live with you guys!"
Brazil's Hibria has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with their bassist:
"This is something we've never thought we would communicate our audience someday, but we regret to tell you our great friend Marco Panichi has left Hibria. Marco told the band he left the group to dedicate himself to his personal projects. Due to the great pride we have for our career path and for all we have accomplished together since the beginning of the band, we respect his decision. As friends, we know we can count on Marco as well as he knows he can count on us in the present and in the future. To those Who follow our music, be sure that the four of us have been working harder and harder to release a killer, intense and heavier third album by the end of 2010. See you soon!"
Marco Panichi also commented: " I'm writing to share I'm leaving the band on the following days after 17 years dedicated to playing bass-guitar and 14 as part of Hibria, in which I'm one of the founding fathers. After all this time it will be hard not being part of a band and feel your heat after launching a CD or playing in a concert. However, lately, I feel more attracted to produce bands than playing in one. I'm aiming to work with different bands and for that reason I started a partnership with Final Pro Music in Los Angeles to launch Brazilian bands in the USA. More...
