Death metal’s speed obsessed sons of darkness Hate Eternal don’t ever fuck around in their quest to represent metal to the fullest. Their newest song is a real scorcher, one of the more listenable (some people can’t take this band’s intensity) songs they’ve done yet still truly punishing. Love these dudes. There are some riffs in here you will want embedded into your face/skull. The track titled “The Stygian Deep”, is streaming now at Stereogum.
Regarding the new track, HATE ETERNAL founder Erik Rutan comments: “”The Stygian Deep” has a very compelling and intriguing energy to it, dynamic and expanded yet aggressively rooted in the tradition of Hate Eternal. A very black mysterious journey that develops through many passages as you listen. A musical landscape of much depth and darkness…”
Infernus will be released worldwide by Season of Mist on August 21. Pre-orders for the album across multiple CD and LP bundles are available at the Season of Mist E-Shop. HATE ETERNAL previously released the first track from ‘Infernus’, “Pathogenic Apathy”, here.
New album Infernus is sure to be a thrill ride if other tracks are half this good and I’m loving the snare attack. Between this, Gutter Instinct and the mindfuck of the recent Alkaloid record, this is an awesome death metal year even if this is only a “halftime report”.
