Grammy-nominated. Respected by peers. Revered by fans. An unstoppable force. Tougher than a prison yard. Architects of positive, uplifting anthems that require and demand crowd participation. That’s Hatebreed, top to bottom, back to front.

This Connecticut hardcore/metal institution has been demolishing its way around the globe since 1994. Not many bands can enjoy that kind of ... Read more in Amazon's Hatebreed Store

Product Description


On Perseverance, Hatebreed's major-label debut, the underground favourites have not sacrificed any musical or lyrical principles--or any aggression--turning in 16 tracks of unrelenting force and unrepentant heaviness, with most tunes clocking in at under three minutes. The quintet combines elements of old-school hardcore with death-metal intensity for a metal-core sound that has both melodic guitar moments and double-kick drums.

In "You're Never Alone", vocalist Jamey Jasta cuts to the chase in engaging his audience: "This is for the kids who have nowhere to turn, who have nothing to live for," he barks, encouraging fans to use "hatred to do the right thing". Especially anthemic is the shout-along "I Will Be Heard", while the speedy punk-mosh mania of "We Still Fight" is enough to raise blood pressures. If Slayer and Pantera are your idea of ear candy, Perseverance is just what the doctor ordered. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars Woah 10 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
I gotta respond to the guy who says listen to Mudvayne. Don't be fooled. The gap between these 2 bands is HUGE - in attitude & musical direction, in appearance and substance.
First, this album is BRUTAL. The first time you spin it you are left winded. They have no equal in the hardcore scene.
But what is incredible in this genre is that the album gets better and better. You don't get bored. The more you listen the more you love. You'll start to see and appreciate the talent, the songwriting, the variation. And yes the vocal delivery, which is more rap than thrash, and comes over great.
But you will never get used to the AGGRESSION. This album ROCKS in a way you just can't express.
The Mudvayne thing. What?
Hatebreed deliver from the heart, with might and feel.
Mudvayne deliver from somewhere else altogether, and you true believers out there know what I mean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 26 April 2010
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Within seconds of album opener `Proven,' bursting out of the speakers at speed, you will have already fallen in love with this album. Perseverance is certainly a classic record and Hatebreed themselves exemplify everything that is right with both Hardcore and Metal, their sound is excellent and they know how to write great songs.
Some listeners may be put off by Jamie Jasta's lyrics or his reliance on sing along moments, but the vast majority of listeners will find the man captivating. Sometimes it is possible to write about vengeance or violence without sounding childish and Jasta has a knack for it.
On 2002's Perserance; their major label, debut the band were still relatively fresh and were able to write a set of short, straightforward and similarly structured songs without having to worry about diversifying their sound or distinguishing one album from another, as such this is possibly their purest, most streamlined and focused album, no song feels out of place and the pace never lets up.
Title track and single `Perseverance,' is still about the greatest Hatebreed song out there and tracks like `A Call For Blood,' and `Hollow Ground,' still appear in the Hatebreed live show to this day, Perseverance is no throw away album.
The album has a really great guitar tone, very deep, very heavy but with a lot of definition, there is no trade off, this album retains all the heaviness but is never muddy or unclear. In fact; as a whole the entire production job on Perserance is excellent, almost ahead of its time in many respects. The album doesn't seem to have aged at all.
If you want a straight forward, brutal listening experience you can't go wrong with Perseverance.

4.0 out of 5 stars FEROCIOUS!!! 1 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a 40 minute blast of Hardcore fury, laced with a Metallic sheen!
Songs that are nothing much over 2 or 3 mins, in your face, raw guitar, thumping drums (the drummer is very proficient technically for the H/C genre) fat bass work and throaty vocals. And you can forget anything like samples or scratching/hip hop ala Biohazard (who are often likened to Hatebreed).
Production is good but perhaps is more raw than 2003's Rise Of Brutality which has a stronger Death Metal influence in it's guitar tone, bass drumming and vocals. Jasta is angry & hoarse but his vocals sound a little less 'Death' than the growls on ROB. More shouting than the low grunting of that later album.
As usual, life in the street, urban issues/personal struggle style lyrics pervade and this is best described as angry, working class music (which is what Hardcore basically is).

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance 21 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have waited along time for a band to make an album like this. This release envelopes all the greatness of true US hardcore in 16 brutal songs. What bands like Biohazrd, Sick Of It All & Pro-Pain started (and long may they continue), Hatebreed are taking to a new level. Simply brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their back badder then ever 29 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
FINALLY. Five years is a long time between albums, especially if your a metallic hardcore band, but the waiting is over, Hatebreed are back ready to kick the living daylights out of conventional music and reclaim their crowns as kings of metallic hardcore. "Satisfaction," was a classic, its simplicity was its strength, but now Hatebreed have increased their scope, this album is just shy of 40 minutes, the riffs are heavier and more gutwrenching, the beatdowns bigger, the drumming harder and Jamies vocals surpassing any level of intensity he reached on "Satisfaction," this along with Poison The Well's "Tear From The Red," Burnt By The Sun's "Soundtrack," and Underoath's "Changing Of Times," are THE best hXc releases so far this year lets see if Europe's best (Arkganel, Length Of Time, Stampin Ground) can respond with the same intensity and scope.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hard hitter 17 Oct 2012
By Matt182
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hatebreed's 1997 debut album really impressed me - it's beauty was in its simplicity and the sound of the album lyrically and musically really hit the spot. By the time the band had released this album (5 years later) in 2002 a lot had changed not just in music but with the world. Out of the band's original line-up 3 out of the 5 members remained, with 2 new band members for this album. The band signed with major label Universal records this time. The debut album had quite a mix of sound in my opinion but managed to be a very consistent, flowing record. This album retains the aggression and intensity of SITDOD but doubles it! This album is much more powerful and beats you into submission with its powerhouse sound. The lyrical content about dissatisfaction and frustration remain but this time seem more focused. The music side of things has improved in my opinion and even though the overall sound seems more consistent than on the debut album there are some quite different sounding tracks throughout the record. The album is 10 minutes longer than the last album but the songs are still pretty short (not a negative).

The album pretty much literally kick-starts with the headbanging anthem Proven. With no intro Jamey comes in screaming (with vocals as great as ever) "You wanna see me fail; you won't get your chance!". The sound is fantastic and its one of the best tracks on the album. The title track is another of the best - strengthening the theme of persevering through tough times. The chorus is somewhat simple but very strong and effective. Lyrically I feel more drawn in as a listener on this album like I can relate to the issues more and it's pretty hard to ignore Jamey's screamed vocals; each word with conviction. It's easy to believe that Jamey is serious about what he's talking about.
