My Dream Band: Hatriot's Steve 'Zetro' Souza

In the last of our latest Q & A series, the former Exodus man relents and picks a couple of rock Gods to tinkle the ivories...

Mr Souza, it's an absolute honour to have one of the absolute legends of thrash here joining us at Metal as Fuck for our My Ideal Band segment.

Arven - Black Is The Colour (Massacre Records)

Rambling folky symphonics...
Release Date: 
22 Aug 2013 - 11:30pm

If you like the folk tinged symphonics of Epica, Nighwish and the like, then I suspect you'll be enamoured with Arven's Black Is The Colour

Darkane - The Sinister Supremacy (Massacre Records)

Welcome back!
Release Date: 
27 Jun 2013 - 11:30pm

Swedes Darkane are undergoing something of a renaissance in 2013.

Six Reasons to Kill - We Are Ghosts (Massacre Records)

It's nearly getting boring how many brilliant bands Massacre Records picks up on. Nearly. Not quite.

For a lot of people, metalcore has become a somewhat stagnant genre (I believe I may have covered this on a previous review).

Deadlands - Evilution (Massacre Records)

Evilution is the debut album from Sacramento band, Deadlands. The members have a pedigree from a variety of previous bands, and some amazing guest musicians on board, and they’ve all come together “to write and produce their own brand of heavy metal….” Sadly, it’s not working.
Release Date: 
22 Feb 2013 (All day)

It should be said from the outset that Deadlands are technically proficient in every aspect of this album.

Damnation Angels – Bringer of Light (Massacre Records)

Never before have I heard an album that makes me want to be a knight...
Release Date: 
22 Feb 2013 (All day)

As we surely all know, different music is designed to make you feel different things. Hardcore music is designed to make you want to beat people up.

Hatriot - Heroes of Origin (Massacre Records)

Release Date: 
24 Jan 2013 - 11:30pm


“Let's give them what I've done for the last thirty years...typical bay area thrash, with just a hint of new school flare.”

Dirt - Rock’N’Roll Accident (Massacre Records)

Call it Southern Groove Rock or Sludge/Doom Metal; Whatever, Rock 'N Roll Accident is both impressive and entertaining.
Release Date: 
23 Nov 2012 (All day)

Dirt - The band was established in 2008 in Germany by singer Sven Zaklikowski soon after leaving the metalcore band he was in with an arsenal of songs he

Kaotik – Starving Death (Massacre Records)

Meaty death metal to sink your teeth into
Release Date: 
25 Oct 2012 - 11:30pm

It takes balls and not a little talent for a new band to come stomping into view with such assured confidence in their sound.
