RU-TAN! RU-TAN! RU-TAN!
Having now heard a new track from Hate Eternal’s forthcoming Fury and Flames, I’m even more excited than I already was for the latest offering from Erik Rutan – I mean, the song is just fucking BRUTAL. My newly quadrupled enthusiasm works out pretty well, since Vince and I are going to see Hate Eternal’s show with The Black Dahlia Murder and 3 Inches of Blood tonight at BB King’s in Times Square tonight (NY readers – seek us out and buy us a drink… Vince is the dude with the huge beard, I’ll be the guy in the Lamb of God shirt who looks fucking miserable and totally unapproachable)… and, if everything works out, we’ll get to interview the dude sometime in the wee hours of the morning, after the gig.*
ANYWAY, here’s a clip of Hate Eternal playing “I, Monarch” from their DVD, The Perilous Flight. They sound pretty MASSIVE, if you ask me…

*By the way, as I type this, I think Vince is doing a phoner with one of the dudes from Bullet for My Valentine. And, yes, I am aware of the humor in the fact that we may interview Hate Eternal and BFMV in the same 24 hour period, given that those bands’ respective fan bases would probably kill one another if given half a chance.
