Hittman was a late-eighties group squarely in the Queensryche camp of classy, melodic, slightly progressive metal. This was a band that seemed on the rise, but never broke through, possibly due in part to not getting their albums readily available in the states. Vocalist Dirk Kennedy has remained in the industry for some time and talked about a new album a few years ago, which may or may not take place in the future.
