Hirax
The New Age of Terror (Mausoleum)

By: Mike SOS

Emanating from the same scene that spawned Slayer, Testament, and Exodus, veteran metal troupe Hirax have been through quite a bit in the band's career, yet The New Age of Terror finds the quintet in fine headbanging form. The 11-track old school sojourn has all of the blistering solos, pure metallic vocals, and bone-crushing rhythms you'd expect from a band that started back in the infant stages of the thrash metal movement, but without sounding overblown or cheesy like so many comebacks do. Instead, tracks like "El Diablo Negro" and "The New Age of Terror" may date the band a bit, but finds Hirax in the kind of fighting shape that makes you proud to wear your denim jacket and delightfully bang your head.
