Hatchet  


More retro thrash here, from one of the birthplaces of the original movement. Hatchet won over Metal Blade after recording a couple of demos in 2006 and 2007 and debuting in 2008 with Awaiting Evil, while it took five years for a followup album (Dawn Of The End) on a new label (The End). Awaiting Evil has all of the trademarks of classic retro thrash, with Exodus and early Slayer influences all over the place like it's 1986 all over again. On the other hand, Dawn is quite a bit more mature, with an improved production, better musicianship, and a tad more modern approach, though there's still plenty of old-style thrash riff goodness on display. The band has done well to stretch beyond the retro tag and this may bode well for the future.
