Hirax To Release New Album In August

Thrash metal veterans Hirax has announced that they will release their brand new studio album, "El Rostro de la Muerte (The Face Of Death)" in August through Black Devil Records. The album will feature ten new tracks along with a bonus track from the bands "Chaos And Brutality" EP.

“The combination of Haddad and Rozen’s recording and production are perfect for the vision that we had for the sound of this album,” said Hirax vocalist Katon W. De Pena. “We worked with Haddad on the last 2 Hirax EPs, Assassins of War and Chaos And Brutality. He has a great understanding of the power and speed of Hirax, and he knows how to bring the best of our talents to the surface. We have a lot of respect for him. Hirax first worked with Michael Rozen back in 2004 on The New Age of Terror album and it’s great to be working with him again. His experience in mixing and production are what we need to complete the mega-epic sound that we are striving for. It’s the first time Hirax has ever brought two of our producers together, but it seemed like the logical thing to do since they both have an ear for detail and a certain work ethic which brings out the best in the band. Musically, it combines everything that Hirax is known for and much, much more! True thrash metal!!”

I've never been a fan of Katon's ultra high-pitched vocals. Hirax has got some great riffs and all but the vocals ruin it for me. Don't get me wrong, Katon is a really cool dude! But yeah...he tends to hit sharps from time to time.
