Dec. 16 — Independent thrash metal outfit Hyperia premiered the video for its latest single this week.
The band premiered the video for its new single, ‘Operation Midnight’ Thursday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album, Silhouettes of Horror which is expected for release in March 2022. The album’s exact release date is under consideration.
The video for ‘Operation Midnight’ plays out like a sequence from a horror movie. A woman lays in bed, terrorized by hooded figures and visions of worms in her bed. meanwhile the band performs its single in footage spliced into the video.
The band talked about the song’s video and how it connects to the song’s lyrical content in a prepared statement.
“’Operation Midnight’ was a song that we wanted to be fast, punchy, and hard-hitting the whole way through,” the statement reads. “It is accompanied by a music video filmed by City Zero Films that was shot a few hours northeast of Vancouver in a secluded foresty area. The song is a good song to set the pace of the album, lyrically and musically. The lyrics focus around nightmarish hallucinations and terrors and 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 musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single is a vintage thrash style composition. The powerhouse vocals alongside the instrumentation immediately lends the song to comparison to works from the likes of Anthrax, Annihilator, and even Megadeth to a lesser degree.
