Is it a polyrhythm? No, it’s polyposmic!”

"..Polyposmic is a fun experience when it comes to math metal. In its run time the album offers quite a lot to hear. It’s math technicality isn’t overbearing or extreme, but makes for a great gateway to explore the genre even further. As a debut record, Hibagon have demonstrated a promising treat that is both very enjoyable, and continues to keep the listener guessing..."

"..Italian experimental progressive rock outfit Hibagọn just released their debut album, after two previous EPs in which they solidified their sound and personality. At forty minutes long, Polyposmic brings us a healthy dose of the mathematic prog duo. Focusing on fast-paced odd-time signatures, polyrhythms, and dissonant intervals, the creature by the name of Hibagọn is able to outdo its previous achievements. With the help of various effect pedals, guitarist Dowi is able to make us forget the fact that there is no bassist or complementary guitarist or keyboardist (except on ‘Orogenesis’ and ‘Zero’). Polyposmic is a fun time and a worthy challenge, all at once, and I didn’t expect any less from this cryptid. Do yourself a favour, and press play already!.."
