Hirax Is Nothing But Thrash In “Hellion Rising” [VIDEO]

Formed in 1984, Hirax knows a thing or two about thrash metal, and they prove it in their new video for “Hellion Rising,” which you can watch in the player above. However, the track itself is the real prize here; from its classic intro to the high-pitched vocals to the unrelenting drums to the riffs and to the ripping guitar solo, “Hellion Rising” is the very definition of thrash metal.

“Hellion Rising” comes off Hirax’ fifth studio album, Immortal Legacy, which is available on CD, MP3, and vinyl.

Hirax vocalist Katon W. De Pena comments on the making of their new music video for “Hellion Rising”:

The new Hirax video, ‘Hellion Rising,’ is a visual thrash metal experience. We filmed on location in the historic Battery Bunkers built in 1942, hidden in the hills of San Pedro, California. This is our second video directed and produced by Donovan Vim Crony. The scenery is the perfect backdrop for Hirax’ brand of intense thrash metal. No green scenes, fake production or props were used in the making of this high-definition video/film. The release will coincide with the announcement of our upcoming European tour/concert dates 2015. We are very excited to hit the road again and play our music for all the die-hard European thrash metal maniacs!
