The cover artwork for “Blind Ride” was created by Gustavo Sazes (ARCH ENEMY, FIREWIND, SONIC SYNDICATE, GOD FORBID) of Abstrata Art, while the 3D modeling was handled by HIBRIA guitarist Diego Kasper.
Commented Kasper: “We’re sure this is the most intense and raging album in our career so far. Besides keeping the speed, dense arrangements, and melodic lines of the heavy metal we’ve played until now, we allowed influences from thrash to progressive to permeate our music. We can’t wait to hear the feedback from our audience, live and through the web. Also, we have recently inked a deal with Base 2 Productions, in charge of the management of SEPULTURA and ANGRA, and for sure all these new partnerships [label/management] would take us to another level in a worldwide basis.”
