Hexthrower

 


The new album Mythos Tragoedia is finally unleashed in 2015. Los Angeles-based proto-metal rockers Hexthrower morph the mystical and subversive spirit of ‘60s psychedelia (ala Cream, Iron Butterfly, Canned Heat) with the raw heavy metal and blues rock madness of the early 70s (Mountain, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Black Oak Arkansas, Uriah Heep, Captain Beyond, Hawkwind, Judas Priest). Hexthrower has embarked on a zealous mission to baptize the current riff-hungry generation of listeners with a massive dose of the true rock ’n’ roll sacrament.
 

Multi-platinum producer and underground music legend Geza X (Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, The Germs, Meredith Brooks, Primus) recorded and co-produced the Mythos Tragoedia album at the Vortex and Ultrasound Studios in Downtown LA. A satirical and absurdist music video spoof on Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 1973 cult film masterpiece The Holy Mountain, directed by Kevin Schofield and starring Ron Jeremy, was filmed in 2015 to accompany the album. 

 

BIO INFO: Band founder Rahne Pistor started out in the late ‘90s backing up Misfits guitarist Bobby Steele in his band The Undead gigging at CBGBs and around the NY/NJ area. He then moved to California and started The Sixth Chamber (2002-2009), a band that was mentored and managed by Mountain/Jack Bruce/Megadeth manager Bud Prager (R.I.P.) up until his death.

 

NOTES ON THE COVER: Cover artwork for Mythos Tragoedia is by the late Frank Frazetta, considered by many to be the greatest fantasy illustrator of all time and known in the rock world for designing classic ‘70s rock covers for bands such as Nazareth, Dust, Molly Hatchett, Yngwie Malmsteen, Ringo Starr, Herman's Hermits, Wolfmother and others. He is also the artist best known for bringing the image of Robert Howard's Conan the Barbarian character to the masses.
