Hibria Parts Ways With Bassist Marco Panichi

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.

"My special thanks to all the audiences who have been by our side and to all who wrote me to compliment HIBRIA and my work. For those who chose to play bass guitar or play some licks I composed, I salute you with my warmest regards! I believe there´s no greater satisfaction to a musician than inspiring upcoming musicians! Also, I have no words to thank all the Japanese fans for all the great moments we had on the 4 concerts of 2009 and for including me among the best bass players in 2 different years!

"Forever I'll remember the evil reactions, the sweated faces, hand claps and tears we shared together in different concerts! Both you and my band mates are part of the greatest moments of my life and made from Hibria the band I always wanted to be part of. The band is now living a special moment and preparing the album I bet will be the best so far. I´m not sure if Hibria will wish to have any cooperation from my part, but I´m sure you´ll know if this come to happen. I wish to my friends Abel, Diego, Eduardo, Iuri and the member to come, lots of luck! I wish they keep conquering so dedicated fans, always ready to support the band and make from Hibria one of the most recognized Metal bands from Brazil in the latest years!"
