HIRAX Guitarist LANCE HARRISON: New Album Will Be Another Truly Old-School Classic

D-Day's Revenge recently conducted an interview with HIRAX guitarist Lance Harrison. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

D-Day: You've just pretty recently joined HIRAX along with your brother, Steve. How did the opportunity come about? Was there alot of auditioning or did they already know you and simply ask?

Lance: I've known Katon for a few years. We are pretty much like brothers and hang out all the time. I actually worked for the band as their stage manager last year. Katon has come out and seen me play before so I guess that could have been my audition.

Katon made some changes in the line up... we started working on new material together with my brother Steve on the bass. Glenn came back the day before we auditioned Fabricio. It just all happened so quick...

The new HIRAX is born!

D-Day: How does it feel having your brother on stage as well?

Lance: It is both a pleasure and an honor to play with my brother. We both have been playing for over twenty years each, in different bands always supporting each other over the years. Last year we played at The Metal Jam 2005 in Southern California... together on stage for the first time ever. It was the best experience. Now I get to jam with this crazy fucker all the time. What else can I say?! He's my brother and if you've ever jammed with your own brother you'd know. There is a connection on a different level. It's great and Steve KICKS ASS!!

D-Day: What is in the works as far as a new album is concerned? Any plans?

Lance: It is called "Assassins of War" it is another truly old-school classic... from the heart, KICK-ASS THRASH METAL album with NO filler tracks. It will come with some extra surprises. We are working our ASSES OFF to come up with the HEAVIEST AND FASTEST MUSIC POSSIBLE!!! GUARANTEED to Rip POSERS' faces off!! This album will make all TRUE REAL METALHEADS PROUD!

D-Day: Do you have any input in new material as far as writing?

Lance: Yes, on the new stuff, Katon and I have already worked on some songs together. Glenn and I come up with riffs... If it catches Katon's ear.....we hammer out a song. We have already started to do four-track demos and the material that we are coming up with is KILLER!! WAIT TILL YOU HEAR IT!
