"HEROES OF ORIGIN"
"HEROES OF ORIGIN" is the debut release from the Bay Area Thrash Metal band
HATRIOT. After one listen you will wonder why the band sounds a little familiar. This is
because it features original EXODUS vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza! HATRIOT is a dream
come true for fans who were either there or grew up on the Thrash Metal movement in the
80's. These guys have been pull right from that time and brought to the present. All I kept
thinking as I was listening to these guys is that it's as if EXODUS & OVERKILL merged
together to create a massive Thrash attack. They have the classic Thrash Metal sound with
lots of grooves, shredding and fast paced guitar solos. I loved the pulse pounding drum beats
that sounded like Charlie Benante from ANTHRAX. The vocals are exactly like EXODUS,
with no surprise. These guys sound like they came from that time in music, but they are a
better version of all those great bands from that time. If you think of OVERKILL "HELLO
FROM THE GUTTER" & EXODUS "FABULOUS DISASTER" & "BONDED BY
BLOOD" era then you'll know exactly what HATRIOT is all about. These guys are by far
one of the best new Thrash Metal bands I have heard in a very long time! All I can say is buy
this, buy this, buy this! Thrash til Death!!!!
