Steve Zetro Souza has once again stepped into the thrash metal world, and has made an immediate impact on the thrash metal scene. The veteran metal singer from such proven bands, i.e., Exodus, Legacy (Testament), Dublin Death Patrol, Tenet, AC/DZ and now with his newest band Hatirot takes his musical roots back in time to the 1980’s when metal was fast, furious, yet still melodic. Still from the Bay Area (which happens to be the evolutionary birthplace of thrash metal) is what sets Hatriot apart from today’s metal world. Not many bands have been able to establish themselves as contenders in this genre since the biggest bands emerged from this time period, but few bands have the musical direction of Steve Zetro Souza, who have been there and done it with global success.
Steve Zetro Souza has a vocal style that few singers possess. He has the power and sting, yet at the same time, his fans can understand what lyric’s he’s actually singing. Not many singers in thrash metal can give you that. Most of all, Zetro delivers! He has his own style that has made him one of the premier singers in all of metal. As when he was with Legacy (now Testament), Steve Zetro Souza writes all of his own twisted lyrics, and with the help of his young guitar wizard, Kosta “V”, the two of them collaborate to bring you the music of Hatriot. Few bands can be fast, loud, powerful and ferocious, while staying musical, melodical and crushing. Hatriot gives you that, along with the pure intensity of a hungry band that wants nothing more than to tour and play live music to fans.
Hatriot, never satisfied with the newer trends in the metal scene, has re-discovered that going back in time, making quality “old school” metal with a proven formula that only Steve Zetro Souza could form and re-invent for this modern era, has put together a band who understands this direction, has perfect chemistry and hits the stage light a freight train! Hatriot, faster than you’ll ever live to be!!!
In 2010 Hatriot Released Their Self-Released, Self Titled, Acclaimed EP:
1) The Fear Within
2) Weapons Of Class Destruction
4) The Mechanics Of Annihilation
Already, the band has earned worldwide respect having supported Testament and Forbidden. While only playing three live shows, Hatriot has broken out of the Bay Area metal scene with a vengeance. The band is currently receiving a lot of record label attention. They have written enough strong material to release a debut album that will crush and elevate them to the next level.
You’ve wanted something new and you’ve wanted something heavy. Look out! Hatriot will hit the road and destroy a city near you very soon. Impact is Imminent!!!
