Legendary vocalist Steve “Zetro” Sousa who continues to be a prominent force on the metal scene has formed a new band called Hatriot. The band who released their 4 song demo last year is taking off and on the path to world domination. The band includes Zetro’s 21 year old son Cody Souza on bass, Andrew Gage and Kosta Varvatakis on guitars and Alex Bent on drums.
Hatriot takes us on a trip back in time to create a thrash sound that fans will be excited to hear. Zetro says of his new band:
“I know a lot of people have been wondering what I was doing musically. Basically, last year I was working with these kids, putting songs together and getting to know them. I didn’t want to say much because talk is cheap, although a lot of my close friends knew that I was doing this. I don’t think they realized the magnitude of it, because in the meantime, I was writing lyrics and recording new songs for Dublin Death Patrol and also in the last year, I started my own AC/DC tribute band (AC/DZ) and so for me to just come out of left field with a new original thrash metal project was probably not expected by anyone… Good, that’s what I wanted.”
The self-released, self-titled demo includes the following songs:
1) The Fear Within
2) Weapons Of Class Destruction
4) The Mechanics Of Annihilation
Check out the track The Fear Within below. You won’t be disappointed.
