HAIL THE HORNS Feat. STATIC-X Bassist, Ex-SOULFLY Guitarist: 'H.T.H.' Lyric Video Available
May 12, 2022
HAIL THE HORNS, the newly formed trip featuring Tony Campos (bassist of STATIC-X and FEAR FACTORY),Marc Rizzo (guitarist of ILL NIÑO and formerly of SOUFLY),and Opus (drummer of DEAD BY WEDNESDAY),will release a new original single "H.T.H.", on June 3 via Mindsnap Music, distributed by Von Artists, Ltd. (The Orchard).
The lyric video for "H.T.H." can be seen below.
Opus states: "'H.T.H.', which are simply abbreviations for our self-titled track, is a nod and an 'ode to' some of the classic heavy metal songs and bands that we grew up on that influenced us all. Tony, who is singing leads on this track, took some songtitles, words and lines from obvious metal songs and made them work writing them into song complete lyrics. Our idea was to have that same 'Metal Militia'-type vibe. I believe we accomplished that."
"H.T.H." was produced, mixed and mastered by Nicky Bellmore, who has previously worked with TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider (and also plays drums for Dee's solo band),George" Corpsegrinder" Fisher (CANNIBAL CORPSE),Jamey Jasta (HATEBREED),DEAD BY WEDNESDAY, GENERATION KILL, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, and many more.
