Canada’s HYPERIA, formerly of Calgary, AB, and now residing in Vancouver, BC recently unleashed their second full-length album “Silhouettes of Horror” on March 18th. The record is a fast, melodic, and heavy-hitting thrasher that lyrically explores parapsychology, night terror hallucinations, and inhumane government experiments.

Today, in support of the album, Hyperia premiere their latest shredtastic guitar playthrough video for the track “Experiment 77″ along with an interview with husband and wife members Colin and Marlee Ryley via Decibel Magazine.

“Silhouettes of Horror” was produced by guitarist Colin Ryley with mastering done by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland (Children of Bodom, Nightwish, Battle Beast). The album features ten original songs and a cover of ABBA’s classic hit “Gimme Gimme Gimme”. Old and new fans of thrash, NWOBHM, and power metal will appreciate this 50-minute mosher. From its relentless opening track “Hypnagogia” to the super melodic and anthemic “Prisoner of The Mind” to the punchy and hard-hitting “Operation Midnight”, there’s something for every denim patch wearing metalhead to enjoy.

They also recruited good friend and session drummer Gord Alexander (Tessitura, Tides of Kharon, Immunize) for its recording, and for the album’s artwork, they enlisted once more Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Toxic Holocaust).

HYPERIA (originally from Calgary, AB now based in Vancouver, BC) is a Melodic Thrash Metal band known for their wailing vocals, shredding guitars, and fast, heavy music. Formed by Colin and Marlee Ryley in September 2018, they found 3 members from the local metal community and hit the ground running. Since the release of their debut EP “FISH CREEK FRENZY” in 2019, HYPERIA has been thrashing venues and taking the Western Canadian metal community by storm.
In April 2019, HYPERIA announced their signing SLIPTRICK RECORDS, who released their debut full-length album “INSANITORIUM” in January 2020. The band celebrated their release to a 300 person sold-out show in their hometown of Calgary, Canada.
Later that year, the band announced the departure of their previous drummer Jordan Maguire, while at the same time revealing the commencement of their second record “SILHOUETTES OF HORROR” with session drummer Gord Alexander (Tessitura, Tides of Kharon, Immunize). The album was completed in June 2021 and is due out in March 2022.
