Hatriot have premiered a lyric video for their new demo track “Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed.” The final version of this song, which is one the first to feature Cody Souza on vocals, who took over for his father Steve “Zetro” Souza (Exodus), will appear on the band’s upcoming new album.
The band said the following:
“The video was done by Mike Sloat, recordings by Abel Torres, and image by Kevin Paterson.
The lyrics are metaphorically driven for heinous people on death row like pedophiles, serial killers, and other monsters of that sort.
In the song, the mid-to-high-level shrieking are the villagers hunting the monster and the low death metal growls are the point of view of the monster.
Now that Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza is full time with Exodus, we wanted to tap more of our death metal influence such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Revocation, Skeletonwitch and Death while still keeping true to Hatriot’s Bay Area roots such as Exodus, Testament, Death Angel and Machine Head.”
