Hate Eternal Enter “The Stygian Deep”
A chance to hear a new Hate Eternal song is like a chance to finally nail your high school crush: you gotta take it, and you gotta take it without hesitation.
And while I can’t help you the high school crush thing, I can help you with the Hate Eternal bit: the band is now streaming “The Stygian Deep,” a new song from their forthcoming album, Infernus. It’s full of clean vocals, harmonious guitars, gorgeous melodies, and introspective lyrics about a lost love…
I’m totally shitting you. The song is more discordant than bombs dropping on other bombs, the lyrics (as far as I can tell) are about death and shit, I’m still not entirely convinced that Erik Rutan isn’t a demon from whatever the fuck is one level below Hell, and (appropriately, given the song’s title) the melody is about as soothing as drowning.
I know there are people who don’t like Hate Eternal. But I do not understand those people. Not one bit.
Stream”The Stygian Deep” below! Infernus is out August 21 on Season of Mist. Pre-order it here.
