HIRAX: 'Thrash Til Death' DVD Details Revealed

March 13, 2006

Los Angeles thrashers HIRAX will release their first DVD, "Thrash Til Death", on April 25 through Black Devil Records.

"Thrash Til Death" features over two hours of live footage — the complete set from Minneapolis Mayhem 2, plus bonus footage from shows played in Germany (Bang Your Head Festival and warm-up show),Sweden (Sweden Rock Festival),The Netherlands (Dokk 'Em Open Air Festival),and San Francisco (Tidal Wave Festival and Thrash of the Quintana (KUSF 23rd anniversary show at The Pound SF).

The tracks compiled on this visual anthology span HIRAX's entire career and were filmed using professional cameras, multiple camera angles, and high-quality audio. The DVD also contains an interview with the entire band, "Hostile Territory" promo clip, a full visual discography including liner notes and artwork (by Pushead, "Mad" Marc Rude, and Craig Cummings),and even an Easter egg (hidden concert footage from Fender's Ballroom in 1985).

"We are very excited about the DVD," said singer Katon W. De Pena. "It contains some of the most amazing performances the band has done up until this point. I wanted it to be something that HIRAX diehards as well as any fan of extreme metal would be proud to own. As a matter of fact, this DVD was compiled and edited by a huge metal fan, Eddie Boyd (aka 'Sickthrash'),who has been collecting thrash memorabilia since the beginning."

"Thrash ‘Til Death" will be available through Century Media distribution as well as Black Devil Records. European and South American distribution is in the works.

HIRAX is currently in the preproduction stage for their upcoming album "Assassins Of War". Joining vocalist Katon W. De Pena are original HIRAX drummer Johnny Tabares, lead guitarist Lance Harrison, and bassist Steve Harrison.
