Since hitting the Bay Area Metal scene in early 2007, Hatchet quickly made a name for itself. They worked hard to gig as often as they could and also not compete with, but group together bands of the like to help strengthen the scene. Focusing on playing with other young starting thrash bands in their area, the fan base grew. Eventually they reached out to the neighboring Los Angeles thrash scene which was also flourishing and invited various bands up to the bay area to diversify their shows, and spread overall thrash metal awareness.
After self-releasing two demos, the band’s debut album, Awaiting Evil, was released in mid-2008. The album was well-received by thrash enthusiasts around the globe and proved a great beginning for Hatchet. Since the release of the debut, the band has completed three full DIY US tours that have helped put them on the map for up and coming thrash metal bands. Unfortunately in this time, the band also saw its share of lineup changes, which stalled overall progress of the group. Throughout the changes, founding member Julz Ramos always had the passion to keep the band going, even moving to take on vocal duties. Now in 2012, the band has never been stronger with its most dedicated, mature, and musically inclined members since its birth.
Their sophomore effort, Dawn Of The End, showcases a much more aggressive and professionally oriented band. The group has stated its hunger to hit the road and prove that thrash metal is still a force to be reckoned with.
"Hatchet is beyond thrilled to announce our signing to The End Records. They have a vast array of genres and styles within the label and it will be very interesting and exciting to see how Hatchet can expand its sonic force within the label. We have been shopping our new full length album to various key labels, however The End's straight forward interest, excitement and approach to the band was a refreshing one for us to see. Further talks have only strengthened this feeling and we are happy to see the label already has some ideas and avenues they are thinking about to help push us in the right direction. Album details and release dates to shortly follow." - Julz
