RISE, HATE ETERNAL! RISE LIKE A PHOENIX AMONGST THE ASHES!!!

You are reading this on Wednesday morning (or maybe some other time, depending on various circumstances), but I am writing it on Tuesday night. And as I write it, I am about halfway through listening to Hate Eternal’s new album, Phoenix Amongst the Ashes, for the first time.

And it is glorious.

There are very few albums I entered 2011 being more excited about than this one, and I’m overjoyed to learn that not only has Erik Rutan not disappointed his fans (as though he could), but that he absolutely met and possibly exceeded my expectations, impaling aardvark baby after aardvark baby after aardvark baby. This album rules so hard, I can pretty much tell I’m not going to be listening to anything for a couple of weeks.

FUCK. YES.

Phoenix Amongst the Ashes has a release date now — May 10, via Metal Blade — and cover artwork, which you can see above. Yes, the cover artwork is friggin’ awesome. It’s by Paul Romano, in case you couldn’t tell.

May 10. Mark it in your calendars or fail at life.
