CANADIAN THRASHERS HYPERIA POST NEW MUSIC VIDEO “OPERATION MIDNIGHT”
Canadian thrashers Hyperia, formerly of Calgary, AB, now residing in Vancouver, BC will be self-releasing their new album, Silhouettes Of Horrorm in March 2022. The full-length follows 2020's Insanitorium (Sliptrick Records) and their 2019 EP, Fish Creek Frenzy.
Silhouettes Of Horror sees guitarist Colin Ryley behind the soundboard, producing and mixing the record, with mastering done by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland (Children Of Bodom, Nightwish, Battle Beast). Album artwork was created by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Toxic Holocaust).
“We think that we have polished our sound and pushed ourselves to create what we believe is a newly refined vision. This record has pushed the whole band to their limits, and the songwriting, performance, and the production value is a huge step up. We feel the fans will enjoy this new album even more than our first full-length,” adds guitarist Colin Ryley.
The band even included a cover of Abba's “Gimme Gimme Gimme”. For the recording of Silhouettes Of Horror, Hyperia also recruited good friend and session drummer Gord Alexander (Tessitura, Tides Of Kharon, Immunize).
Most of the lyrical themes on Silhouettes Of Horror revolve around inhumane government experiments, sleep disorders, and night terrors.
In the lead-up to the release of Silhouettes Of Horror, Hyperia is sharing their new music video for the first single “Operation Midnight”, a hard-hitting track with melodic vocal lines and sporadic guitar riffs. It's a catchy and memorable song that portrays what the whole new album is about.
“'Operation Midnight' was a song that we wanted to be fast, punchy, and hard-hitting the whole way through. It's accompanied by a music video filmed by City Zero Films that was shot a few hours northeast of Vancouver in a secluded foresty area. It's a good song to set the pace of the album, lyrically and musically. The lyrics focus around nightmarish hallucinations and terrors; seeing black hooded figures at the side of your bed. It has melodic and heavy parts that showcase the diversity of our new album,” the band comments.
Silhouettes Of Horror is due out on March 18, 2022 and is recommended for fans of Exmortus, Arch Enemy, Unleash The Archers, and Havok.
