The Danish Dukes of thrash & death Metal: enough said? No? Ok: hand-made, old-school, real, in-your-face metal that will for sure make your head bang until the neck snaps. That´s HateSphere!
Formed in Aarhus by guitarist Peter “Pepe” Karmark in 2000, HateSphere is one of a handful of names reigniting the flame of ’80s speed metal by way of the so-called Scandinavian neo-thrash movement. The band quickly overpowered the Danish metal scene, while concurrently setting an immeasurable new standard for thrash metal domestically and abroad. HateSphere’s first three albums, all of them under the leadership of Scarlet Records, upgraded the band’s status from local sensation to Europe’s hottest up and coming thrash quintet.
Even though HateSphere have been undergoing several changes within their line-up over the years, it never stopped them – but quite the contrary motivated them even more to progress both musically and personally, rejoining Scarlet for 2018’s ‘Reduced to Flesh’ and going to a remarkable process of rejuvenation.
HateSphere is back and committed to create absolute havoc through extreme aggression and a unique, sick touch. A perfectly oiled war machine, once again the Danish band has emerged from Antfarm Studio with a beast of an album.
‘Hatred Reborn’ is textbook thrash-death metal eager to be performed live: razor-sharp riffs, some wicked melodic solos, a groovy-thick rhythm section and a truly hysteric and menacing vocal delivery (courtesy of new frontman Mathias Uldall) – not to forget the subtle, brilliant songwriting variety surfacing here and there.
Lyrically, ‘Hatred Reborn’ revolves around the subject of man’s fascination with evil. Every single human being is drawn to some kind of darkness: be it through factual events or fictional scenarios, HateSphere know how to deal with the seasons in the abyss.
