(English: "...'Seraphical euphony' is among the best I've heard in the genre. Make sure to get this album now!") [9/10]
Close-Up Magazine #183
"Especially for a debut release, it’s brilliant how effortlessly and fluently Hyperion have expressed what can only be described as a boner-inducing amalgam of approximately 4.8 million notes."
"There is no fluff, there are no fillers, there are only nine songs that show the world that HYPERION are definitely a band to watch out for." [8/10]

We would like to expand our horizons and play for all of you out there, and are grateful for the interest you have shown. It is beyond our expectations and we want to live up to yours. Make yourself heard, on the Facebook post or the Youtube video - where would you like to see us next?
We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience related to the debut album's first issues selling out, and the delayed deliveries for orders made in the last few weeks as a consequence. The reissue is currently being printed, finally, after six month's delay - we wanted to ensure we never ran out and ordered the reissue in May. The reissue should be available by the middle of December. Once again, we will be able to ship new orders immediately.
We would also like to announce that the vinyl is on its way. The interest is very humbling! Vinyl printing is a slow process but it should be available in a few months.
Stay tuned by signing up for the newsletter at the start page, and customize your subscription to your taste.

Hyperion was formed in 2007 in Stockholm, Sweden. The original vision was to create melodic music rich in harmony that was also brutal and epic, thus in the beginning Hyperion were inspired by many Swedish, primarily melodic, death metal bands and still are to this day. The only remaining members from this line-up are Erik Molnar and Anders Peterson.
Later, the band took a move towards incorporating elements of Swedish and Norwegian black metal. Mikael Malm, Efe Guner (former guitarist), Harry Lauraéus and Raul Vicente (former bass guitarist) joined the ranks.
The band released their demo in 2010 and played some gigs in Stockholm for some years. The debut album, ”Seraphical Euphony”, took many years to write and record. It was towards the end of this process that Efe Guner departed, on friendly terms, to be replaced by Joel Hagroth. Due to other priorities, Raul Vicente soon also left the band later in 2016 replaced by Justin Binns as a live stand-in, but later rejoined come the new year.
Hyperion finally released ”Seraphical Euphony” in February 2016, which contains both new material and more professional re-recordings of the songs on the demo "Blood of the Ancients", through Black Lion Records.
Currently, the focus is on growing and promoting, as well as touring as much as possible. New material is on its way.
