Release: 2017
Genre: Metalcore/Hardcore

Plodding, downtuned hardcore that loses some of its luster
COMMENTS:
'Hatred" features plodding, downtuned hardcore that starts out solidly but then slowly loses steam and appeal as you move through the album. Deviation is not present here and you get 12 tracks of similar sounding hardcore with very little change. The vocals are barked, growled and screamed and to me seem way too low in the overall mix. The guitars are beefy and angry, while the drums have a booming sound that effectively drowns out the bass at times. While the repetitive quality causes a bit of boredom, the album itself is pretty decent. Some variety would be welcome on the next release but this one is worth checking out for fans of the genre.
