What does 激ギレ mean?

It is not on ALC and Google has nothing for 激ギレとは.
Is it a particular form of frustration/angriness? Does it always have to include the act of venting out, or can it be 100% inside the head with no externally visible behavior modification?

  • This is the first time I saw the verb vent was used in a figurative way. That said, I guess 激ギレ is a slang for "fury", "rage", So probably the action included extremely emotional behaviours.

It's for 激しい・非常に and the ギレ comes from 切れる・キレる, so it means "to snap", "to lose one's temper" in an extensive manner. Maybe you could say "to freak out" in terms of anger. Because it's , you're good to think of an externally visible behavior.
