This is no-frills, classic thrash metal, right down to the album cover. Fear Beyond Lunacy has 10 songs and clocks in around 45 minutes. If you need your thrash fix, and I know I do, then you can’t go wrong with Fear Beyond Lunacy. In my opinion, it is easily the band’s best work to date.
There isn’t a bad song on the entire album." -KNAC
"Fear Beyond Lunacy is explosive in terms of musicianship and production, and modern thrash fans will rejoice upon first listen, while old school fans will appreciate the Bay Area thrash worship within every second of the record... intense and menacing...
slays most of the competition with ease." -Outburn Magazine
"9/10... bigger, badder, and better than they have ever sounded." -Metal Observer
"Hatchet sound as fresh as ever with 45 minutes of neck-wrecking fury." -Loudwire

After self-releasing two demos, Hatchet's debut album, Awaiting Evil, was released in mid-2008 via Metal Blade Records. The album was well-received by thrash enthusiasts around the globe and proved a great beginning for the band. In 2013 Hatchet signed with The End Records releasing Dawn of the End and in October 2015 their latest, Fear Beyond Lunacy. Over the years the band has criss-crossed the US several times touring with Soilwork, Jeff Loomis, Threat Signal, Black Tide, Cellador, Exmortus, Flotsam & Jetsam, Doyle and Kobra and the Lotus. Plans are underway to continue their live assault throughout 2016.
