Polish Blackened Death Metallers Hate Drop New Single, Sign to Metal Blade Records


Warsaw, Poland’s phantasmic tyrants Hate have been around for nearly three decades, and their legacy of destruction has now earned them a spot on the roster of Metal Blade Records. It’s about damn time, because while this band has been preaching darkness and foreboding longer than I’ve been alive, their existence seems to have been eclipsed by generic band name syndrome + the fact that I’d have thought I was listening to Behemoth if I didn’t know any better.

Still, Hate are pretty good at what they do, which is rupturing eardrums in the name of evil. Vocalist/guitarist ATF Sinner commented on the band’s plans moving forward:

“‘You are judged by the company you keep’, the saying goes – and if that is true, then we shall be judged extremely favourably. We are very proud to announce our signing to Metal Blade Records, a label that is as synonymous with metal as the invention of the distortion pedal. This signing could not have come at a better timing, as it coincides with an opening of a new chapter in the band’s history. Beginning with the release of 2017’s Tremendum, Hate has been on a journey towards new, even darker horizons, and we’re confident that this step will help us in reaching these goals. Our first collaboration is already well underway and plans have already been laid down to enter the studio in December of this year, with a tentative release date for mid-2019. Come, bear witness and join us on this journey.”

Listen to the pre-production of the newest song from Hate, “Path To Arkhen,” below. While not profoundly innovative, it’s still awesome enough that it’ll be time well spent. You can also catch Hate on their world tour happening now, which will be sure to CRUSH, according to Vince’s prior experience. See dates under the video.
