Video footage of reactivated California thrashers HIRAX performing at the Metal Forces Night - Part I festival on September 29, 2007 at Altes Wasserwerk in Lörrach, Germany can be viewed below.HIRAX played two successful shows in September in Germany and France with new second lead guitarist Tim Thomas, formerly of STEEL PROPHET and AGENT STEEL, as well as returning drummer Fabricio Ravelli. HIRAX's new EP, "Chaos and Brutality", was recently released throughout Europe on Poland's Selfmadegod Records. The four-song EP was recorded in February 2007 at Shiva Industries in California. It includes the title track along with a re-recorded version of "Walk with Death" from the band's 2001 EP "Barrage of Noise", the instrumental "100,000 Strong" and "Lucifer's Infierno Reprise", an arrangement which HIRAX recently revamped and plays live. HIRAX is currently writing and rehearsing new material for a full-length album titled "El Rostro de la Muerte" / "The Face of Death". The album's cover will feature artwork by Ed Repka, the undisputed king of thrash metal art.
