Hatchet Releases “Fall From Grace Single”
Announces New Album Details
Dawn Of The End Out March 5th On The End Records
March 5th, 2013 marks the release date of the latest album from the Bay Area’s Hatchet. The quartet’s sophomore work is a huge step forward in precise aggression, performance, songwriting and production. Having recently confirmed The End Records as the band’s new home the band and label want to share a new song from the album, “Fall From Grace”, in addition to Dawn of the End’s cover, as illustrated by All Things Rotten (Children of Bodom, Eluvetie, Amon Amarth).
“Fall From Grace” was chosen as the first preview track off Dawn of the End. This song is about the fall of Lucifer from heaven as the fable goes. Lucifer was struck down by God for taking a stand against him leading to what we now know as Satan and Hell; that is if you believe in that sort of thing.
The cover art of Dawn of the End was meant to depict and signify the title of the album in one picture. It’s the end of all mankind — a total apocalypse. This could be depicted in many ways, but to us this might be a scene from the end of the world with Death summoning demons to rise from their slumber and ascend unto our world and destroy it completely. I’ve just always been a fan of apocalyptic scenes. Very metal!” laughs Julz.
