New Stuff

hatebreedselftitledAt this point, I don’t know what to expect from Hatebreed’s upcoming, self-titled album. The first song the band released, “In the Ashes They Shall Reap,” really did nothing for me – but I actually quite liked the second song the band put out, “Merciless Tide.” So much so that I’ve been listening to it off and on for the past week.

Now the band has posted yet another track on their MySpace page, entitled “Everyone Bleeds Now.” And in terms of the quality scale, I’d place it somewhere in-between “Ashes” and “Tide.” I mean, it’s pretty heavy, but it’s also just another variation on the same song the band has been putting out over and over and over again since Perseverance. Whereas “Tide” suggested there might be some fight left in the old boys yet, this song just makes me feel…  meh.

Still, the album has fifteen songs on it, so there’s still twelve more tracks to win me over. I guess I’ll find out when Hatebreed drops September 29 on E1.
