7) Eliminate
8) Weep
In a time where heavy metal is no longer just Heavy Metal, we have witnessed genre bending for the past decade or so with varied results. We've seen the merger of Punk & Heavy Metal, Hardcore & Speed Metal, Industrial & Metal, and even the washed-up, has-been Rap & Metal. The Project Hate bring a new mix to the plate with there mind bending (and boggling) Death Metal and Techno hybrid. Don't draw your conclusions yet! The primary course of action is Death Metal first and then touches of techno here and there to keep things interesting.

To be honest, before listening to "Hate, Dominate, Congregate, Eliminate", I didn't think that it could be pulled off. Personally, there are three things that I do not like when listening to Death Metal and they are: Clean female vocals, the overuse of keyboards, and TECHNO. To my dismay, The Project Hate have found a way to incorporate the three elements previously mentioned with neck snapping Death Metal to create a new sound that is just as evil and horrific as some of the most honored death metal bands in the genre.

I was left with my jaw hanging to the floor on such tracks as "Nailed", "Deviate", and "Burn". The Project Hate crush through the albums eight cuts with an all-out assault of doom filled metal, hateful vocals, and just about everything else in between. The shortest song on the album, "Nailed", still rings in at a hefty 7 minutes and 10 seconds. You will definitely be banging your heads in slow motions as the word "NAILED!!" is guterally spewed from your speakers.

"Deviate", one of my favorite songs on the CD, is pure genius, and a true testament to Death Metal in general. The first verse alone will have your evil fists in the air banging to armageddon: "Body covered with blood and sperm, as I shut the angel eyes. Memory's failing, but I am sure it was God that told me They have to die!" How much more evil does it get than that?

The Project Hate deliver with pure hate on their 3rd studio opus, "Hate, Dominate, Congregate, Eliminate". If you like your death metal with a twist, then experience the beautiful and threating sound of The Project Hate!

About this Writer:
David Loveless // Dave's early introduction to Metal was listening to records by Black Sabbath and Kiss. Discovering Metallica's Master of Puppets on record at the local public library turned his world upside down. After spending nearly 24 years in Japan and expanding his love for the International underground metal scene, Dave (and family) now resides in the US. The savage brutality of Extreme Metal brings out the "Grim Gaijin" in him.

Maximum Metal Rating Legend - Click for Full Details
5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
