Hyperion are a band from Sweden that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Seraphical Euphony" which was released by Black Lion Productions.
Classical guitar playing starts off the album and after a few seconds the music gets more heavy and melodic along with some atmospheric synths which also gives the music more of an epic feeling and after the intro melodic guitar leads, blast beats and high pitched black metal screams make t heir presence known on the recording.
You can hear a lot of influences from both the more melodic sides of the Swedish black and death metal scenes in the bands musical style and all of the instruments have a very powerful sound to them and classical guitars also make their return in certain sections of the recording while some songs also bring in a brief use of spoken word parts and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some songs also add in symphonic elements and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and on the last track clean singing vocals are added into the music.
Hyperion plays a musical style that mixes the melodic sides of black and death metal together to create some very dark and heavy sounding music, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Occultism and Legends.
In my opinion Hyperion are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Novus Ordo Seclorum" "Moral Evasion" and "Blood Of the Ancients". 8 out of 10.
