All Shall Perish
Hate.Malice.Revenge
May 2005
Released: 2005, Nuclear Blast
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

HATE.MALICE.REVENGE is the band’s debut album and it seems to be their first album overall, so maybe some background info is needed.



All Shall Perish did a lot of playing wherever they could in the Bay Area scene during 2002, and then recorded a two track demo and was discovered by a Japanese label which originally released this debut album at the end of ‘03. This 8 track debut became a success within the underground scene during that year and they continued to tour with a lot of different acts. Now comes the difficult part, as I don’t know if this is a re-release or if they have done a re-recording of HATE. MALICE. REVENGE.



All Shall Perish is all about the love for metal and hardcore and the band has a general distaste for all the crap coming out nowadays. However, in December 04 the band signed with Nuclear Blast, and a world wide deal was made.



The bio says that the band, “never get tied down to death metal or metalcore, they simply have become metal that breaks down genres and gets EVERYONE moving”.



All Shall Perish lands in the category metal/hardcore but I’d like to add death metal to that description as well but we can also find influences of grind too. The music contains numerous changes in the tempo as well as heavy grinding in a raging speed. Like many other hardcore bands, All Shall Perish has two singers in Craig and Caysen, Caysen also plays the guitar. One sings with regular voice and the other one sings with more death metal like vocals, though which of them who sings what, I don’t know.



This is a fairly short album, about 40 minutes, but that feels pretty much anyway and I can strongly recommend the album to anyone who’s into brutal/grinding death metal combined with hardcore/grind influences. I have nothing major to object to regarding HATE.MALICE.REVENGE. On the contrary feels this album like a really strong debut with well structured material and skilled musicians.



During 2005 the band plans to do as much touring as possible but also start to work on material to album number two that will be released sometimes during 2006.



Killer tracks “Deconstruction”, “Laid to rest”, “For far too long” and “Never ending”.

All Shall Perish
Hate.Malice.Revenge
June 2005
Released: 2005, Nuclear Blast
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Waspman

Orignally released by Japan’s Amputated Vein Records in 2003, HATE.MALICE.REVENGE is Oakland, California’s All Shall Perish’s debut CD. Partially influenced by those new-fangled metalcore sounds (though not half as much as some would have you believe), but mostly by good old-fashioned death metal (of both the Floridian and Swedish variety), All Shall Perish are a new punishing force to be reckoned with.

When the first strains of “Deconstruction” blast through the speakers, you’re immediately transported back to the heyday of 1991 when albums like LIKE AN EVER-FLOWING STREAM and LEFT HAND PATH reigned supreme. Craig Betit’s vocals are pure death aggression and the rest of the band grinds like the gods of yore. Right away, it’s obvious that All Shall Perish easily decimates metalcore bands like Shadows Fall and As I Lay Dying, not to mention the fact that they obliterate whiners like Atreyu. Sure, some metalcore creeps into Betit’s vocals, but it is always the shouted portions – there is no melodic crooning to be found here. As well, there are riffs and breakdowns here that are ripped straight from the metalcore playbook, but they are quickly swept away in a flurry of Dismembered riffs.

There is nothing groundbreaking in HATE.MALICE.REVENGE’S churn, but it certainly is ground-shaking! This album will beat the living hell out of you for all of its brief 36 minutes and leave you craving for more. Leave the pretenders behind – All Shall Perish are the real thing.
