Hatriot-4 Song Demo


For those of you who don't know the name Steve "Zetro" Souza let me fill you in a little. This one time vocalist of Exodus has been around the block a few times. With a resume that includes stints in Legacy, F-Bomb, Testament, Dublin Death Patrol and Tenet (as well as his two stints in Exodus) Steve Souza is a true thrash metal legend. Having spent time recently in an AC/DC tribute band called AC/DZ it looks as if Steve is turning his attention back to his true calling. With a one of a kind voice Souza is now fronting the new thrash project Hatriot. While I'm not so sure how I feel about the name (either it is cooler than cool or lame...can't make up my mind) the band is pure Exodus style thrash and I've been enjoying this demo quite a bit. While Steve has said he is happy for the direction Exodus has gone recently he is not interested in reliving the past. Now, nothing brings a smile to my face like old school thrash and Souza sounds in fine form here. Featuring the songs "The Fear Within","Weapons Of Class Destruction","Globacidal" and "The Mechanics OF Annihilation" this demo features top notch production and is easily in league with the current thrash metal scene. You can check it out for yourself as Hatriot is offering their four song demo as a free download!

I've listened to "Hat Riot" a few times and I think it's awful. Maybe awful is a strong word, but it's boring to me. And lyrically? C'mon.

Thanks for your input! Your welcome to your opinion even if it differs from mine. Not all of us will like the same things...the same bands or whatever. I'm just happy to see someone who dosn't agree at least acting cival. It is a nice change of pace from the regular weirdos we have had visit us lately!

It's decent. Nothing new, but solid enough old style thrash.

Hey Andy, you know me, I think it is a very good thrash release, as Mark says it's nothing new, but it is solid. Why re invent the thrash wheel? Keep it oldschool....This does it....
