Interview by Luxi Lahtinen
August 5th (for US) – and August 8th (for worldwide) are two meaningful dates for those of you who have been expecting from these L.A. based thrashers, HeXeN´s debut album, titled STATE OF INSURGENCY, to come out through Old School Metal Records. The album will feature 13 songs of geniously made, technical speed – and thrash metal, an eye-catching album cover artwork made by Ed Repka (Death, Megadeth, Solstice, etc.) – and lots of sweat and bled blood, of course.
