HIRAX To Release “Hellion Rising” SingleFriday, 11th October 2013
Veteran California thrashers HIRAX will release a new digital single worldwide on November 22nd, titled “Hellion Rising.” The single was produced by Bill Metoyer and recorded at Skull Seven Studio in North Hollywood. This 3:55 minute thrash attack with a cover drawn by Maggot Meister (All Things Rotten) will give you the first hint what you can expect from the new studio album Immortal Legacy.
Immortal Legacy contains “14 new raging thrash metal songs that will make you bang your head,” according to HIRAX singer Katon W. De Pena. He adds: “This is our most epic-sounding record to date, sonically powerful and over the top.” The CD features guest appearances by Jim Durkin (DARK ANGEL), Juan Garcia (AGENT STEEL, EVILDEAD) and Rocky George (SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, FISHBONE).
Philip Lawvere, the artist behind such classic album covers as KREATOR’s Pleasure to Kill and CELTIC FROST’s Emperor’s Return has designed the new Immortal Legacy album. Lawvere had done stunning illustrations for numerous albums and is best known for a slew of thrash metal offerings released on Noise Records.
Katon 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!”
