Dangerous Days is the debut full-length from Italy's Hyperion, this being a new band from Bologna, not the band of the same name from the 90s that was also from Italy (specifically Bergamo) but is listed as split-up on Metal-Archives. This Hyperion plays a heavily 80s-flavored brand of heavy/power metal led by sharp riffs and high, powerful vocals. The songwriting is quite mature for a young band and there is not one weak track here. The singer sounds a bit like OZ's Ape DiMartini while the sci-fi lyrics and generally speedy tempos bring early Scanner to mind. A cross between Fire in the Brain and Hypertrace? Yeah, that sounds like a winner to me. Hyperion is definitely a band to watch, if Dangerous Days is any indication of what these guys are capable of.
