Tour-de-force crossover/thrash grand slam from underground mainstay Katon W. DePena's band, Hirax. Chugging riffs, lightspeed drums, and pit-inducing breakdowns, constantly highlighted by Mr. DePena's soaring falsetto. The perfect compromise between corny and awesome, and those "Hey, maybe you should think about giving Christianity a shot" lyrics don't hurt, either.
PS: Katon, the middle initial isn't really neccessary with a name like that (see also: Yngwie J. Malmsteen).
