The Machine is Hibernal’s debut album. Mixed by Mark Healy, mastered by Rowan Salt, and featuring the voice talents of Rowan Michaels, Samantha Béart and Robert Blythe.
The Machine interweaves spoken word with instrumental music pieces to tell a compelling storyline that unfolds throughout the course of the album. Featuring a professional voice talent cast and an original music score, The Machine is an immersive and powerful musical experience that draws the listener in and won’t let go.
This is a unique prog rock journey that explores the themes of ambition, sadness and our choices in life. All of this is told through crunching hard rock riffs, heart-wrenching melodies and soaring guitar.
The Machine is about the choices that we make in our lives, the directions in which these decisions take us, and the influences we have on the people around us as we choose our paths. The Machine is about identity, and about being true to oneself.
Synopsis: A man climbs the corporate ladder inside a powerful company, but finds that with each promotion he must sacrifice a part of himself.
