HATRIOT: debut from act with original Testament/Exodus vocalist out now, streaming
Heroes Of Origin, the blazing debut from thrash act HATRIOT — founded by original Exodus and Testament vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza, alongside his sons Cody and Nick and guitarists Kosta Varvatakis and Miguel Esparza — is out today in North America via Massacre Records! Surging with nearly forty-five minutes of old-school Bay Area thrash tradition, yet with a crushing, cutting-edge tone, the ten tracks on Heroes Of Origin were produced by Juan Urteaga at Trident Studios (Testament, Heathen, Exodus, Skinlab), the cover art and booklet designed by Mark Devito (Motörhead, Laaz Rockit, Ruffians, Exodus).

Having proven his metal allegiance by fronting such acts as Exodus, Legacy (Testament), Dublin Death Patrol, Tenet, AC/DZ, and more, Steve “Zetro” Souza has once again steps into the thrash metal world with HATRIOT, taking his musical roots back in time to the 1980s when metal was fast, furious, and yet still melodic. Souza has a vocal style that few singers possess, boasting a powerful sting yet at the same time delivering in a way where fans can fully understand the lyrics, a trademark trait that made him one of the premier singers in the genre. Still residing in the evolutionary birthplace of thrash metal, HATRIOT is out to crush and destroy everything in its path. Unsatisfied with the newer trends in the metal scene, the band produces quality old-school metal with a proven formula with the perfect chemistry and hits the stage light a freight train!
