Longtime thrash metal assassins Hirax recently embarked on a mini tour of the Lonestar State; performing for die hard thrashers in Houston, Austin and Corpus Christi, Texas before taking the metal to the masses outside the US where the band will play to large crowds of rabid thrash metal maniacs in Chile, Argentina and Puerto Rico.
On the immediate horizon for the band looms the upcoming "El Rostro De La Muerte" release. An album that you will learn pushed the band to their very limits to produce. I recently had the chance to talk metal with vocalist Katon W. De Pena and guitarist Glenn Rogers about the new album, adventures when touring abroad, and much more. It would be a difficult task to find two more friendly and genuine headbangers than Katon and Glenn. You really get the sense that they are as eager to talk metal with you and learn about your local metal scene as vice-versa. Later that same evening I witnessed firsthand the intensity and breakneck speed of Hirax in concert. If you are lucky enough to have Hirax come to your area; take my word for it and catch them live. You will not be disappointed…You may have to schedule a visit to your chiropractor afterwards from all of the headbanging however…
