Hatriot are a band from San Francisco, California that consists of both veterans and younger musicians with a musical style that I would describe as being Bay Area thrash metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Heroes Of Origin" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school thrash metal riffs that go back to the sound of the 80's as well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly thrash style screams that have a melodic tone to them at times as well as some gang back up vocals, while the lyrics cover violent and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Hatriot are a very great sounding old school thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical style, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Suicide Run" "Murder American Style" "And Your Children To Be Damned" and "Heroes Of Origin". RECOMMENDED BUY.
