Commented Zetro: "It looks like everyone is excited about HATRIOT just as we are.

"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 called 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.

"As I'm not as computer-literate as I would like to be, I do read what's on the Internet, but not necessarily chime in, and I know from all my friends and fans from all over the world, they were all wondering if I was going to do another project or quite possibly join EXODUS again and this whole time.

"I knew I was doing this HATRIOT project. I know all the EXODUS fans wanted me back in EXODUS, that is very flattering. For as great as it would be, EXODUS is doing fine right now, and I'm very happy for them.

"So now our plans are to find a record deal, and get this thing off to an amazing start.

"Thanks again to everyone, I'm just as excited as all of you are, as you should be, because I know what I have here, and let me tell you this right now, the best is yet to come.

"See all of you soon… I'M FUCKING BACK!!!"

HATRIOT is planning to make its live debut in the spring.
