More retro thrash here, from one of the birthplaces of the original
entry into the field, winning the label over after recording a couple
of demos in 2006 and 2007 and debuting in 2008 with Awaiting Evil
By now the formula should be familiar to all, the classic influences
to name two) are on display, and like their many brethren, the guys

The production is a tad on the thin side, especially where the drums
are concerned, though that's a minor quibble and after all, this style
doesn't really need overproduction.
Retro thrash these days is beyond saturated,
so it remains to be seen whether
bands like Hatchet have any real staying power (there's no question
that the genre itself isn't fading any time soon).
Hatchet isn't a frontrunner, but they're capable enough and thus are
a fine addition to the new wave of thrash.
