Los Angeles thrashers HEXEN have inked a deal with Singapore's Pulverised Records. The band is preparing to enter the studio to begin recording its second full-length album for a 2011 release.

According to a press release, HEXEN's brand of blistering thrash metal caught the metal community by storm with their intellectual and thought-out songwriting, and showcasing the fretboard virtuoso twin-axe attack of Ronny Dorian and Tak Arayan; very much reminiscent of MEGADETH during their heyday. Having already proven that they are not your average thrash band, their upcoming sophomore release will promise that the border is going to be pushed once again."

Having recently wrapped up a massive 30-day "Thrash & Detoured 2010" tour trekking across USA with RATTLEHEAD and MANTIC RITUAL, the band is now preparing another extensive tour in support of Bay Area thrash legends DEATH ANGEL on their "North American Retribution 2011" tour, alongside BONDED BY BLOOD, LAZARUS A.D. and EARLY MAN.

States HEXEN singer/bass player Andre Hartoonian: "We have a lot of plans, the first order of business being entering the studio in a few short weeks. We cannot wait to unleash the album we have been working on for a long time and even though we usually don't like to over-hype, the fact that it will blow you all away is still an understatement. Another thing is going on tour January-February with our friends BONDED BY BLOOD, EARLY MAN, LAZARUS A.D., and the outstanding... DEATH ANGEL. 2011 is going to be an extravagant year for us. We cannot wait."

Comments Pulverised Records A&R manager Calvin: "HEXEN's mighty debut, 'State Of Insurgency', along with some of their demo tracks were sent to the Pulverised's office sometime ago and we were jaw-dropped by HEXEN's sound, and we knew in an instant that we had to pick these guys up. I had the pleasure of meeting former Century Media Records president Marco Barbieri when he was in Singapore with WARBRINGER as their tour manager, who also highly recommended HEXEN during our previous discussions a few months back. Needless to say, signing the HEXEN deal became a hell lot quicker with Marco representing the band! We are very confident that HEXEN has gathered enough demons for the upcoming new album, and the HEXEN boys definitely know their thrash metal inside out!"
