Heavy Metal News from Metal Blade records

by on Nov.04, 2007, under Metal Music News

Metal Blade Records has just inked a deal with Bay Area thrashers HATCHET!

HATCHET is an onslaught of 5 thrash metal fanatics from the San Francisco Bay Area; a starting point for infamous thrash bands like METALLICA, EXODUS, TESTAMENT, and VIO-LENCE just to name a few. Formed by Julz on guitar and Slave behind the drum kit in January 2005, HATCHET was started as the two were fed up with the stale metal scene in their home town. Their desire to create music filled with substance and driving aggression would be enough to help revive a genre that had slowly began to fade away over the years in their hometown.

HATCHET will be playing various one off dates until they release their new album in spring/summer 2008 and will then be on a heavy touring schedule. Head over to the band’s MySpace page to check out some tracks to get a taste of what’s to come!

“It is an honor to be working with Metal Blade, and to be a part of the legacy of amazing artists they have worked with over the years! Together we will help bring Thrash Metal back to the top where it belongs!” – Hatchet

“In a time where thrash is making an awesome comeback, we are stoked to be working with bands that are a part of the rebirth. These guys are young, ruthless and talented and we can’t wait till they rock you like its 1984!” Metal Blade

HATCHET is:
Marcus (Tormentor) – Vocal Assault
Julz – Lead Guitars
Sterling (McFly) – Guitars
Slave – Drums
