Hatriot

Needs no Introduction - Steve Souza of Hatriot

By now, you know who he is. Steve Zetro Souza, the outspoken and never shy frontman and one-man hype machine for Hatriot. Now releasing his second album with this band, we talk to Souza again about the new music, the old music, the really old music, and the Oakland Raiders
M.DREW: You told me originally that we would see three Hatriot records in two calendar years. Is that still the plan?
STEVE ‘ZETRO’ SOUZA: I’ll tell you this: “Dawn” isn’t even released yet, and I already have two new songs for the next record.
M.D: That’s unbelievable, you know that, right?

Album Review: Hatriot - "Dawn of the New Centurion"

The common album cycle these days tends to run two or three years. A band composes a selection of music, rehearses it, perfects it, records it, masters it, markets it, releases it, tours on it. Probably twice. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Launching the Hatriot Missile: A Conversation with Steve 'Zetro' Souza

So here we are again. Steve Souza, singer, songwriter, band leader, legend, metalhead, sports fan, father and horror aficionado extraordinaire, is back with another record. Not content to rest on the laurels of Hatriot's recent debut "Heroes of Origin," the man known as Zetro is determined to take the nearly unprecedented step of releasing two records inside a calendar year. The always outspoken and never shy Souza sat down with me again to talk about the new record, the present stage of metal, the latest Slayer developments, the rumors surrounding Dublin Death Patrol, the quandary of Hatriot, the Oakland Raiders and as ever, horror. It was, as you might imagine, a long conversation. In an interviewing first for me, Zetro started the conversation off without prompting. Read on and enjoy! _____________________________________________________________________________________
STEVE ‘ZETRO’ SOUZA: Have you seen “The Conjuring?” That is a good one, man. That is a fucking good one. Good story, creepy. Creepy and scary. I liked it, a lot. These guys are like paranormals and they’re couple, they do all these kinds of paranormal exercises, and the guy keeps a trinket from every one that he does and he’s got them in this room. Then he has to go and deal with this house and the house is totally fucking haunted. It’s cool. It’s one of the best horror flicks I’ve seen probably in ten years. Really good.

An Exodus Through the Mind of Steve Souza

Steve 'Zetro' Souza remains one of the biggest names in the annals of thrash, a person without whom the story of the genre's rise to fame cannot be told. Most famously the singer for Exodus, Souza has also been part of several other successful bands, including most recently Dublin Death Patrol. His unique, high-speed vocal style has become his calling card, and it will ring again as he ushers forth his new band, Hatriot. The man and I sat down and talked about...well, damn near anything. Horror, music, the state of the business, concert promotion, retirement and a bunch of other stuff. Read on for an engaging conversation.
