HATE: Massive North American Tour Starts Tomorrow

Ladies and gentlemen, the time is nearly upon us. In a little more than twenty-four hours, Poland’s extreme metal deities HATE return to North America in support of their latest offering of blackened death fury, Erebos. Heads will bang, necks will snap and the bones of the weak will be crushed! Prepare to HATE and “Taste My Blood From A Thousand Cuts!” 

. For the first leg of the tour, HATE will team up with Rotting Christ, Melechesh, Abigail Williams and Lecherous Nocturne for 30 shows. For the second tour, which begins on   April 18th, HATE will support Sepultura, Belphegor and, on select shows Nevermore, during a 38-show run covering the US and Canada. The band has also been confirmed to play some extra concerts between the mentioned tours. The HATE North America invasion will contain altogether 76 shows in the period of three months! Bandleader ATF Sinner comments,

“We’ve been looking for such an opportunity for years. It’s going to be the biggest and most presigious tour we’ve taken part in, and we just can’t wait to be there to spew Erebos songs on the crowds! I know such a long tour is a challenge, but I’m sure we’re well prepare for it. It’s gonna be our second tour in North America after last year’s raid with Hypocrisy which was a great experience for us.”

For a taste of the mayhem to come, check out this video of the band performing the song “Luminous Horizon” from Erebos live in Kiev.

May 31 @ Rickshaw Theater – Vancouver, BCHATE frontman ATF Sinner recently hooked up with MetalAssault.com’s Aniruddh “Andrew” Bansal to discuss Erebos, the North American tour and many other things. An audio recording of their conversation can be found here.

Considered by many to be one of Poland’s most extreme musical exports, HATE has been brutalizing listeners with their distinct brand of death metal since the genre’s glory days of the 1990’s. Eventually incorporating elements of black, industrial and ambience into their already intricate and relentless style, HATE quickly became known as one of metal’s great innovators. Keeping that tradition alive, the band recently entered Hertz Studio in Bialystok to record their newest masterpiece, Erebos. Completed in only five weeks’ time, Erebos promises to be the strongest HATE album thus far. Ferocious, challenging, complex, varied, innovative, and extremely well-produced, Erebos is HATE in full-swing! Erebos was released in North America on February 22nd, 2011 and is already being heralded as the band’s most devastating effort to date, with Blistering.com giving the album “two horns up” and Apoch’s Metal Review calling it “one of the more impressive Black and Death Metal efforts to come out in recent years.” 

The American version of Erebos album will contain 4 bonus tracks. Two of them are dark ambient re-mixes of HATE songs made by a French artist named Melek-tha, known for his collaboaration with a German band Secrets Of The Moon. Other bonuses are industrial-ambient compositions by a Polish composer Michał Staczkun, whose ideas also appeared in other songs on the band’s new album.

For those of you who still need convincing, AOL’s Noisecreep.com is streaming the album’s title track at this location.       .
