Prepare yourself for   “Silhouettes of Horror” , the new album from Canada's   HYPERIA , formerly of Calgary, AB, and now residing in Vancouver, BC. The sophomore full-length will be unleashed on March 18th, and before it officially drops, the band has teamed up with   Exclaim!   for its exclusive full stream premiere   HERE .

"'Silhouettes of Horror' has pushed the whole band to new limits, from its songwriting to our performance, to its overall production value. This album is a huge step up from our previous releases. We can't wait to share it with you all!"   adds guitarist Colin Ryley.

“Silhouettes of Horror”   follows   Hyperia 's 2020 “Insanitorium” unleashed via Sliptrick Records and the 2019 EP “Fish Creek Frenzy”. A fast, melodic, and heavy-hitting thrasher, it lyrically explores parapsychology, night terror hallucinations, and inhumane government experiments.

"The album is mostly about government experiments, greed, and conspiracies', but also about sleep disorders because I have suffered from them since childhood and because of that it was an easy theme to write about."   says vocalist Marlee Ryley.

“Silhouettes of Horror”   contains 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.

“Silhouettes of Horror”   also sees guitarist Colin Ryley behind the soundboard again producing and mixing the record with mastering done by   Mika Jussila   at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland (Children of Bodom, Nightwish, Battle Beast). They also recruited good friend and session drummer Gord Alexander (Tessitura, Tides of Kharon, Immunize) for its recording. For the album's artwork, they enlisted once more Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Toxic Holocaust etc.).

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.
