Veteran metal singer Steve “Zetro” Souza from such proven bands as Exodus, Legacy (Testament), Dublin Death Patrol, and now, has now stepped into the thrash world with Hatriot.

From the birthplace of thrash metal (Bay area), Hatriot is a contender and has set themselves apart, especially with the help of Steve “Zetro” Souza.

I decided to tackle this one myself this time around, stop handing it over to someone else to review.  What do I think. It’s flat out accelerated, dynamic, and raging, while at the same time musically melodic and pulverizing. Souza’s vocals are powerful and brutal, not many can deliver that. Are they out to destroy, definitely, especially with the help of his two sons, bassist Cody Souza and drummer Nick Souza, plus a 2nd guitarist Miguel Esparza. Not to worry, you will hear that drum blast we expect from thrash, and let’s not forget some good ol’ death metal.

Seems to me, this album has taken a step back in time, to old school metal, but also been  taken and re-invented.

1. From My Cold Dead Hands

This to me is a great step forward for the band, promising and giving that old thrash feel. And has made me glad that I chose to review this album, it’s vintage, and well executed.
