Canadian thrash metal band Hyperia make a fantastic feature for Alternative Fruit. Today we listen to a track written by capable musicians that fully utilises their ferocious talents. With a punchy and raucous delivery that entertains crowds of power-music fans around Calgary and beyond, Hyperia are reaching global audiences with their YouTube videos. Adopting the classic horror style of artwork for their music covers and maintaining the theme of disturbing subject matter, their brand of thrash metal fits snugly into the collections of metal-heads around the globe.
The music begins with atmospheric sound effects of nervous yells voices and a voice calling for help. Then, a choppy and rhythmic guitar riff is laid down on a bed of drums. Screaming vocals add another dimension of sound, a franticness that would make Slayer proud combines with female hollering that's more similar to Arch Enemy. Beaty guitar phrases match the thundering drums while verse lines throw their phonics out like high velocity missiles. As the song progresses, the pushing energy remains consistently in overdrive while the guitars run ever-shifting versions of the rhythm. Obliterating licks which make use of scale and virtuoso skills run riot until the very end.
