HATCHETS FOR HANDS Streaming Debut – ‘Convulsions Of A Dying Empire’ EP


(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist, RiffRelevant.com)

Meet the duo of guitarist / bassist Brian Parks and vocalist / drummer Cullen Poythress, the pair better known as the Bay Area-based HATCHETS FOR HANDS.

You should be interested in more than meeting them as they will independently issue their debut EP, “Convulsions Of A Dying Empire“, on May 11. Keeping things simple and to the point, the EP is an astounding melding of melodic death metal, thrash and classic metal elements.


It’s somewhat mind-boggling that this is a two-man entity creating such powerful sonic output. Submit yourself to HATCHETS FOR HANDS now via our stream of the “Convulsions Of A Dying Empire” EP… a most excellent introduction to a band that is just getting started, hopefully.

The EP will arrive through all the standard digital outlets today, May 11, with a limited edition vinyl pressing expected this summer.
