Biography

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

Format: Audio CD
This record is a must for any hatebreed fans, compleatists and people starting out in their own band. The worst point of this album, is that it was clearly done on a tight budget, the sound is very bad. It is not clear weather it was recorded live at a gig, or done in a studio. You can get really raw albums, but at times it is almost impossible to hear the guitars. HOWEVER, the music is of the highest quality and it is an amazing hardcore album, with good dynamic songs with punch agrression and lots of heavy riffage. There is a real feeling of meaning and menice, the vocals are, as always, brutal but still distuinguishable, the guitars are cutting and precise, and the drums are like a powerfull deisel engine driving head on into a concreate wall. The end product is an album that has dynamic, originality and power. Buy it, Drink some beer, Mosh to F**ksville!

This EP was originally released on November 13th 1996 through Smorgasbord records and re-released several times; in 1998 by Smorgasbord, in 2000 by Smorgasbord and Victory records and in 2006 by Cortex records. The EP contains the band's first release - the song Under the knife and 7 tracks in all. This EP is basically a demo which was released for recognition before they found a decent record label. The year after this they released their debut album Satisfaction is the death of desire on Victory records. 3 out of the 5 members appearing on this EP were replaced for the debut album!

The cover art is a pretty disturbing image of a monkey with a screaming face being held down and a pin stuck into its hand.

Track listing:

1. Smash your enemies
2. Kill an addict
3. Under the knife
4. Filth
5. Not one truth
6. Severed
7. Puritan

Every track except for Under the knife has been re-recorded and included on another Hatebreed album. The newer versions have much better sound quality which is something this EP lacks. It was obviously done on a tight budget with the first 4 songs sounding like they've been recorded live in a basement! Jamie enters Smash your enemies with a huge growl and sounds as vocally rough as I've ever heard him but he still sounds pretty good! The problem with the sound quality is that you have to turn it up pretty loud to hear the vocals and they're quite drowned out by really distorted guitar and live drums with the cymbal crashes very prominent. It's not that bad that it's unlistenable or anything just don't expect album quality! The first 4 tracks are the worst quality and tracks 5 to 7 are better. This must be due to the first 4 being placed on the Vinyl records and the last 3 only featuring on the CD release.

Released in 2000 through Smorgasbord records, this is Hatebreed's second album/EP, and it certainly lives up to the previous albums (Satisfaction is the death of desire) level. Although there is a distinct lack of tracks here, they are longer than on the previous album and with length coems a more complexed song structure and further developments in writing lyrics, which is obvious from vocalist Jamie. The music its self is a hybrid of Biohazard and Blood for Blood, however, at this price its an excellent choice of album and well worth listening to!

Basically this is a great album. I only found out about this band coz i was looking at an american heavy metal t-shirt site. I saw hatebreed up there so i thought i would download some stuff of theirs.Well it was excellent so i got the album straight away containing excellent tracks.If u like heavy music get this. I would put this sort of music in the same category as someone like mudvayne and spineshank.They may be to different bands altogether, but this band hatebreed varies. I think they r cool. GET THE ALBUM NOW!!!!!

Before They Were Rock Stars 28 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
4 of the songs on this cd were on the original release of this album. Victory Records then bought the rights and added two songs that were on some split 7inches.
This is where it all began. Connecticut hardcore. Where every show was a prison riot waiting to happen, and where Slipknot fans were nowhere to be seen.

hardcore at it's finest 10 July 2003
By mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
ok. yes some of these songs were better produced on satisfaction. yes it is short. bottomline is this is an independent release. if all u are looking for is slick production by ross robinson than you are into the wrong kind of music and need to stop looking at this cd. hatebreed is an incredible band. their live show is like none other i have seen. this cd catches hatebreed at theitr rawest. ifu know hatebreed, like hardcore and supportindenedent releases, even if it was rereleased by victory, than get this album. appreciate this album for what it is. life changing hardcore. these guys have paved a road for hardcore in mainstream music. don't forget their roots.

Great music, very poor sound quality 17 April 2001
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most people who see this would think that it's Hatebreed's new album, but it really isn't. It's just a re-release of their older material from WAY back in their early days. While the first song starts off in the typical Hatebreed fashion, the sound quality is just really bad, it almost sounds as if it were recorded in one of the band member's garages(it probably was, but I'm not too sure). Some of the album's highlights are the title track "Under the Knife" and the first track "Smash Your Enemies". The fifth track "Severed", is probably the slowest Hatebreed song I've ever heard. So if you're a big fan of them, go out and get it, but if you're someone who wants a good-sounding cd, I'd recommend you listen before you buy.

Powerful stuff, people 15 Sept. 2009
By A. Stutheit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hatebreed clearly had just one task in mind when making their debut, 1996's "Under The Knife": To make some of the most powerful music you have ever and will ever hear. And there's no two ways about it -- most bands would probably find that to be a nearly impossible goal, but Jamey Jasta and Co. achieved it without even breaking a sweat. They did so by filling these seven tunes with simplistic yet biting guitar licks, occasional, fiery thrash runs, guttural bass rumbles, pounding drums, venomous vocals, really memorable lyrics, adherent grooves, punishing breakdowns, slamdanceable choruses, basic song structures, short song lengths, gritty-sounding production, and an excellent live energy. (Seriously, this album is so darn raw that its title is very well deserved because it sounds like the band members could have recorded the whole thing like their lives depended on it -- e.g. at knifepoint.) Listeners who are in search of technical, progressive, and thought-provoking music with radio-friendly singles, poppy hooks, guitar solos, or even one trace of melody...well, they should just look elsewhere. But those who crave a batch of extremely potent, brutal, primal, aggressive, viscerally satisfying, and completely unbridled and frills-free old-school hardcore should pay close attention to "Under The Knife." This was a very solid and arresting debut, and a promising precursor of future success and other good things to come from this soon-to-be legendary Connecticut-based quintet. It all begins with "Smash Your Enemies" (geez, even the song titles give you a rush!). It fades in with a wall feedback before giving way to all the usual Hatebreed goodies, like hefty, chugging, downtuned riffs, clangy, cracking skins and cymbals, and foaming at the mouth bellows that make the listener wonder if Jasta emphatically completed every sentence with an exclamation point when writing the lyrics. "Kill An Addict" is a fairly pleasant surprise because it is almost pure thrash, and is propelled by ferocious and positively blistering, Slayer-worthy guitar leads, and fast, beeping bass lines. (Although the lyrics remain of the pure hardcore mentality: "You brought it on yourself!".) Then the band continue to plow through the steamrolling guitars, dirty-sounding bass bottom, and crashing drum beat of the title cut, and "Filth," with its jackhammering drums, breakneck tempo change, and uber-fat, deep, and ominously grumbling bass lines (which often evoke vintage Crowbar) throughout. (In fact, some -- this reviewer included -- might even argue that "Filth" is a bass-driven song.) Next comes "Not One Truth," a booming number, and the first of two tracks on here that was originally found on 1995's rare 7" split EP w/ Neglect, thus making it the first piece of music Hatebreed ever put to wax! And finally, this seething fourteen-minute ball of hiss and vinegar STILL refuses to let up (not even for just one second), thanks to "Severed" and (the album's longest track) "Puritan," which are bonded together by great, muscular, churning riffs and hulking rhythms that are equal to being bludgeoned with a sledgehammer (also make sure to check out the non-stop stream of livid lyrics and catchy gang shouts in "Puritan"); and which bring the album to a suitably strong, vitriolic, and memorable close.

GREAT SONGS, POOR RECORDING 5 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
HATEBREED is incredible -- song structure, lyrical themes, breakdowns. The "Under the Knife" EP captures the aforementioned components well but retains the all-too-familiar overloaded recording associated with bands on the rise. Pick up HATEBREED's "Satisfaction is the Death of Desire" if you don't already have it. If you are a dedicated fan, buy "Under the Knife." In either case, you'll end up bruised. Mark my words.
