Canadian thrashers Hazzerd have unleashed a new music video for their song “Waking Nightmare.”
The announcement says:
“Waking Nightmare” is a standout track from HAZZERD’s sophomore recording, “Delirium,” which has received extensive praise since its January release, including Sonic Perspectives calling it “an album that embodies the best of thrash and heavy metal,” while Metal Injection wrote “rip-roaring… leaves absolutely no survivors in its wake.” The album – which is available on CD, digital and limited-edition colored vinyl – was mixed and mastered by Johnny Gasparic (Into Eternity) and features cover artwork by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust, Skeletonwitch).
Drummer/vocalist Dylan Westendorp adds:
Waking Nightmare is one of our favorites off the new album, as it is super-aggressive and fast with a melodic build-up intro. The song itself was written about sleep paralysis and how scary that situation can be. A number of people have reported waking up in the middle of the night unable to move and seeing things that aren’t actually there, like monsters, demons, and other apparitions. The video was shot by a local production company called Russman Productions. We were going for that underground/thrash feeling for the video, and we think we got it.
