Cody Souza of Hatriot on New Music, Social Media, and Next Gen Thrash Metal


We caught up with Cody Souza of Bay Area thrashers Hatriot! Their new album “The Vale of Shadows” due out July 22nd, 2022! We talked to Cody about the evolution of the band, the decidedly heavier vocals on the new album, the importance of social media, connecting with fans in person – even when there are no shows, being in a band with his brother Nick, their famous dad – Zetro from Exodus, and more!
