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