On October 16, Cleopatra Records will release a live CD/DVD set from acclaimed Brazilian metallers Hibria.  BLINDED BY TOKYO – LIVE IN JAPAN was recorded at the Shinagawa Prince Stellar Ball in Tokyo in May 2011, is the first professionally captured live Hibria concert to be released.

With speed, power, and technicality, Hibria burst into the scene with a highly-regarded demo, METAL HEART, in 1996.  The band’s influences – Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Manowar, Metallica, Dream Theater – were properly given due and the band started to make its name in Europe.  Hibria has since released three full-length records and toured internationally, supporting Ozzy, Metallica, and Megadeth.  The band is making its second appearance at Loud Park where it has shared a stage with Slayer, Anthrax, Judas Priest, and more.

BLINDED BY TOKYO – LIVE IN JAPAN includes all the fan favorites, from the guitar assault of “Shoot Me Down” and the fist-pumping anthem “Welcome to the Horror Show.” Hibria’s rhythm section flexes its muscle on “Blinded By Faith,” while vocals elevate “The Shelter’s On Fire.”  Says guitarist and original member Abel Camargo,  “Blinded By Tokyo summarizes Hibria’s story, showcasing three successful albums, and a killing live performance in Japan.  Hibria’s home is the stage!

BLINDED BY TOKYO – LIVE IN JAPAN also marks the final release with Hibria founding member, guitarist, and producer Diego Kasper.  The current band line-up is: Iuri Sanson (vocals), Abel Camargo (guitars), Renato Osorio (guitars), Benhur Lima (bass), and Eduardo Baldo (drums).
