Hirax

Hirax band 1984

Hirax

This stuff goes way, WAY back to 1984 but it’s from a very fun chapter of life.  Despite the questionable quality of the audio since the songs were pulled from a 25 years old cassette tape, the music still makes me smile.

The following 4 tracks are from a cassette demo that we released in 1984.  This cassette “went viral” in the underground tape trading scene in Europe and has been released on vinyl a few times over the years.

Born in the Streets

Battle Cry

Stand and be Counted

Believe in the King

The following is the original cassette sleeve.

Hirax 1983-1984 Band Practice

Below are more Hirax songs that were pulled from one of the cassette tapes I have from old band practices.  None of my cassettes are marked with dates but this is in the 1983 to early 1984 range and is the band that played on the 1984 cassette demo.  

The songs are named with a prefix so that they’ll sort in the order that we played them.
