“Sylvia” is a 1972 instrumental song by Dutch progressive rock band Focus. It was released on their 1972 album ‘Focus 3’ and as a single became the band’s biggest international hit. The song has been covered by many bands worldwide but a performance that deserves to be taken into account is that of the Russian metal band The IRBIS whose covering perfectly peers the original version.
The IRBIS is a metal band from Moscow, Russia, one of the few bands in the basis of creativity which is a classic heavy music in a contemporary context, who decided to prove that music is still alive and will live forever in an era of dominance of grinding, screams and noise from the heavy-metal music scene today.
The IRBIS consists of three charismatic musicians, Max Levushkin (guitar), Max Ivkov (drums, synthesizers, sound recording) and Valery Morgunov (bass).
