Band Biographies: Hazzerd


Hazzerd was initially formed by drummer/lead vocalist Dylan Westendorp and guitarist Brendan Malycky, two Calgary teens who were inspired by the early work of thrash legends such as Overkill, Metallica and Anthrax. The group self-released their debut EP, “Victimize The Innocent,” in 2014. The following year, the band recruited then-18-year-old lead guitarist Toryin Schadlich.

In 2017, soon after solidifying the group's lineup with the addition of bassist David Sprague, Hazzerd recorded their full-length debut, “Misleading Evil,” which was released via Canada's World War Now Records. Featuring cover art by Andrei Bouzikov (Skeletonwitch, Municipal Waste), the record was praised by Metal-Temple.com as “one of the strongest thrash releases of 2017,” while Dead Rhetoric called the album “an exhilarating aural ride” with a “Maiden/Priest-meets-early Metallica vibe.”

Currently putting the finishing touches on the new album “Delirium,” which was recorded at Calgary's MCC Recording Studio and mixed and mastered by Johnny Gasparic (Into Eternity). Bouzikov will once again provide the cover artwork. Look for it early 2020!
