Hyperion is a Swedish Extreme Metal band from Stockholm. Formed in 2007, the bands main ambition has always been to create a unique fusion of melody and brutality in order to convey an epic and heroic atmosphere. In the early days of the band, this ambition manifested itself through the influence of melodic death metal bands and thrash metal acts.

As time passed, however, the band quickly drew towards a darker and more extreme sound, while still staying true to the original concept. This became more evident on their latest demo “Blood of the Ancients” released in 2010. Now adding influences from Black Metal acts and also adding elements of epic movie soundtracks, classical gaming soundtracks and numerous other sources of inspiration, the goal was not by any means fully achieved, but the vision was broadened and the result was a stronger musical outlet than the earlier demos released prior to Blood of the Ancients.

This musical vision is also represented in the lyrical side of the band. Themes ranging from Greek mythology, astronomy, tales of ancient warlords and general philosophy and outlooks upon the meaning of life became the new norm. This lyrical and musical concept that developed through years of incubation and hard work resulted in the band’s first full length album which is now completely recorded. It's currently being mixed and mastered by none other than Sverker Widgren, the owner of Wing Studios.

Hyperion stands now at the threshold of unleashing their greatest work to date in cooperation with Black Lion Productions. The artwork and the title have been finalized, and now the band is ready to share the single "Novus Ordo Seclorum" from the upcoming album Seraphical Euphony.
