Hirax Enlists Philip Lawvere For Its Upcoming 2013 Album

Philip Lawvere, the artist behind such classic album covers as Kreator's "Pleasure to Kill" and Celtic Frost's "Emperor's Return," has come out of retirement and will design the as-yet-untitled new Hirax album, which is scheduled for a Spring 2013 release. Visit Philip Lawvere's Facebook page to check out his work at this location.

Lawvere had done stunning illustrations for numerous albums and is best known for a slew of thrash metal offerings released on Noise Records. Hirax frontman Katon W. De Pena commented: "We couldn't be happier to have Philip Lawvere illustrating the cover of our new album. After getting Bill Metoyer to produce it, this is truly the icing on the thrash metal cake!"

In other news, Hirax is pleased to announce that new single "La Boca de la Bestia (The Mouth of the Beast)" is now the most downloaded song from the band in its storied history.
