Hexen

Hexen was one of several upstart bands riding the retro thrash wave of the mid-2000's (see Fueled By Fire, Bonded By Blood, Warbringer, et al). They self-released an album, Heal A Million ... Kill A Million in 2005, then essentially re-recorded most of that album and added some new tracks for what they called their proper debut, State Of Insurgency, appropriately released on the Old School Metal label and featuring instantly recognizeable cover art from the infamous Ed Repka. As with the aforementioned bands, progress and innovation take a back street to bashing out 80's thrash riffs, and Hexen do it as well as anyone. They released a second album in 2012 and then went dark for almost a decade, but founder Andre Hartoonian is resurrecting the band name, with a new lineup and a new album planned for 2022.
