Immortal Legacy
April 2014
Released: 2004, Steamhammer
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Helias Papadopoulos

I am always happy when a classic (crossover) thrash band is back with a new album release and Hirax is one of them. IMMORTAL LEGACY is their new effort and I am surely sure that many thrash fans will stop underrating them.

This is the fifth raging thrash device by the American legendary thrash metal act and shows off some pretty nice work from these guys. IMMORTAL LEGACY contains probably ‘immortal’ thrash metal tracks like ‘Hellion Rising’, ‘Black Smoke’ and the mid-tempo rhythmical ‘Thunder Roar, The Conquest, La Boca De La Bestia - The Mouth of the Beast’. There are tracks that strongly bear to mind N.W.O.B.H.M. like ‘Tied To The Gallows Pole’. I always enjoy instrumental tracks when there are on metal albums and here we have a couple, ‘S.O.W.’ and a bass solo in ‘Atlantis (Journey To Atlantis)’.

Someone is going to ask if this Hirax release worths something? The answer is simple: YES! Because, this album consists of huge and expansive, as well as some riffs so heavy that they would cave your skull in if you sat near the speakers.

Hirax return with IMMORTAL LEGACY, their best and most vicious album since their reunion. A blistering display of thrash metal, IMMORTAL LEGACY is nothing short of a full-scale thrashing assault. With a relentless vocal onslaught by Katon W. De Pena, bulldozer-heavy riffs that swarm the listener, and close-to-inhuman drumming, the album beats you into submission over its 13-track length (including the bonus track Mephistopheles).

IMMORTAL LEGACY is a synthesis of everything great about thrash metal distilled into what will arguably be one of the genre’s best albums of 2014
