Darkness and solitude

Straight Edge!?!??!?!?

I love you for having this on here, but straight edge?!?!?!? How can you do so little homework on so much music? This is a music based business. You can not include straight edge in the description of a band who could not be any further from straight edge. Wow!


Easily hatebreed's best

This album will absolutely change the way you look at people, and most importantly, yourself. Buy it.


the last hurrah

Unfortunately this was the last Hatebreed album worthy of your ear. It captures their days as Connecticuts hardcore-punk scene flag band. Subsequently they tried to reimagine themselves as a straight ahead metal unit for sales purposes and were never completely at home in that genre. But yes, absolutely purchase this album and play it often.

About Hatebreed

The New Haven, Connecticut-based Hatebreed got together in 1993 for the purpose of creating a "back to basics" hardcore band with heavy metallic guitars, screaming vocals, and 30-second songs. Consisting of Jamey Jasta (vocals), Lou "Boulder" Richards (guitar), Chris Beattie (bass), Sean Martin (guitar), and Rigg Ross (drums), Hatebreed had the chance to play throughout the East Coast while sharing the stage with the likes of Entombed, the Deftones, Slayer, and Napalm Death. By 1997, Victory Records released the quintet's debut full-length, entitled Satisfaction Is the Death of Desire. The group signed with Stillborn/Republic/Universal for 2002's Perseverance and 2003's Rise of Brutality. Supremacy arrived on Roadrunner Records in 2006, featuring new guitarist Frank Novinec (who'd previously spent time playing with Ringworm, Terror, and Integrity). Guitarist Wayne Lozinak joined the band in 2008. The band released For the Lions, a covers album, in May of 2009, followed by a new self-titled studio album in September. The group's sixth studio outing, The Divinity of Purpose, dropped in 2013 and peaked at the number 20 slot on Billboard's Top 200 albums of the year, and number one on the Hard Rock albums chart. The band spent the next few years on the road before heading back into the studio for album number seven. The resulting Concrete Confessional dropped via Nuclear Blast in May 2016, and was followed by an ambitious world tour. ~ Mike DaRonco
