Next review: » Hatebreed - Supremacy
Released: 2009, E1
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
After last years excellent DVD release I was anticipating the release of a new album from them. That time is finally here and immediately upon its arrival I put the disc in the player and hit play.
Almost instantly you are hit with some of the most intense energy that you�d expect from the band. They pull no surprises on the listeners as just about every song is similar but with a few exceptions. There are a couple of tracks that do stand out amongst the pack. The first of these is �In Ashes They Shall Reap� which is heavy, anathematic and extremely catchy. The other one, believe it or not is a cover of the Metallica song; �Escape�. Being a fan of the first three Metallica albums I found Hatebreed�s version quite interesting. Musically it is slightly heavier and vocals are rougher than Hetfield�s but this is quite good. They do it justice.
A decent release of hardcore style metal. Some may argue where Hatebreed fall genre-wise but we can all agree it is intense and quite enjoyable.
