Fan-Filmed Hirax Footage Posted Online

Fan-filmed video footage of veteran California thrashers HIRAX performing the song "Hostile Territory" on November 3, 2007 at the Keep It True IX festival in Dittigheim, Germany can be viewed below.

The California thrashers played two successful shows in September in Germany and France with new second lead guitarist Tim Thomas, formerly of STEEL PROPHET and AGENT STEEL, as well as returning drummer Fabricio Ravelli.

HIRAX's new EP, "Chaos and Brutality", was released in October throughout Europe on Poland's Selfmadegod Records. The four-song EP was recorded in February 2007 at Shiva Industries in California. It includes the title track along with a re-recorded version of "Walk with Death" from the band's 2001 EP "Barrage of Noise", the instrumental "100,000 Strong" and "Lucifer's Infierno Reprise", an arrangement which HIRAX recently revamped and plays live.

HIRAX's "Assassins of War" CD/12” vinyl is now released in five countries — Holland, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, and the U.S. and is available worldwide through all major distributors including Century Media, Relapse, Ebullition, and The End Records.

HIRAX is currently writing and rehearsing new material for a full-length album titled "El Rostro de la Muerte" / "The Face of Death". The album's cover will feature artwork by Ed Repka, the undisputed king of thrash metal art. A 10-country European tour is also in the works for May 2008, including a headlining appearance at Long Live Metal!!! festival Chaptire 2 in Wattrelos, France.
