The Greatness of the Band Hazzerd Starts With the First Song In the Album Delirium

What band analysis would be complete without analyzing and reviewing the 2020 studio album Delirium by Canadian thrash metal band Hazzerd? It may already be too redundant to say this but here is another Canadian thrash metal album that adds to Canada's expanding thrash metal scene and the melody is well, quite impressive and it tastes good for thrash metal fans. This album begins with the lead guitar filled song called Sacrifice Them (In the Name of God). After that impressive lead guitar display it turns into a thrash metal song that is definitely against religion. The song specifically criticizes the existence of God and calls it an imaginary friend. The song is saying that if God exists why does he not hear what we have to say? The thing is that the Universe doesn't hear words, it speaks in frequency if we go by the Law of Attraction principles. As the song goes on, another neoclassical style lead part comes and it sounds also like Blind Guardian in some respects but THIS is the way to start a thrash metal album! If you though this first song is great, there are several more bright spots in Hazzerd's second studio album.

"Call of the Void" Is One of the Best Instrumental Songs Ever

Your musical soul will be fulfilled by listening to these guys especially with the song called “Call of the Void” an impressive 6 minute plus instrumental song that has touches of an Yngwie Malmsteen style influence in it.

"Call of the Void"

Review of the Songs Dead In the Shed & Illuminated Truth

“Dead in the Shed” has very fast and creative lead guitar work which only enhances that song. Melodic thrash metal would be the most accurate description for this Canadian band and you can hear it in the guitar work if you are a longtime listener of thrash metal. Illuminated Truth is a song about thinking that you know the truth of what is going on in society when you really don't. Too many people are brainwashed into thinking that the world is a certain way when it is not that way.

"The End"

Even More Reasons to Listen to This Album Delirium

Let's give Calgary's Hazzerd credit for this masterpiece of a thrash metal album because THIS is the way that thrash metal should be done and performed. Megadeth was great in its day which was the early 1990's and in the 2000's they rebounded but do far two albums in, Hazzerd should be put on a top 5 list of Canadian thrash metal bands. The slow gradual buildup into thrash metal songs that have great raspy vocals, exciting lead guitars, and great technical skill show that Hazzerd are here and should provide great competition. I'll stop short of saying that Canada is as great as Germany when it comes to thrash metal but they beat a good number of countries and they really dominate over the US's southern neighbor Mexico.

Final Thoughts About the Album Delirium

“The End (Outro)” ends this album and here we have a nice acoustic starting song as the lead guitar kicks in and this is a fine way to end this album as it definitely is a notch up from this Canadian band's debut. Where did they get this kind of creativity from? It makes you wonder because for many metal fans, Canada may still not be a nation that is regarded as a thrash metal hotbed but make no mistake: this Dream of Sanity influenced instrumental song is one more reason that Hazzerd knows how to finish an album that they started.
