A hardcore classic!,
This review is from: Supremacy (Audio CD)
Hatebreed are not only veterans of the hardcore punk scene but long-time flag-bearers for the genre.
Over the years bands of this ilk have come and gone - some in the blink of an eye. Yet in the ever changing face of hardcore this is a band which has not only stood strong & proud but have improved in leaps and bounds with each successive release. Supremacy is no change in that pattern...
From the out & out hardcore riffs of 'Spitting Venom' & 'Destroy Everything' through to the metal undercurrents of 'To The Threshold' this album is every inch the classic in the making. Sheer primal emotion is harnessed by technical musicianship and combines with some of the most positive, uplifting lyrics ever commited to record. Every track is a defiant roar in the name of anyone who has faced adversity.
I understand that many of the reviews on sites such as this can be far too praiseworthy to be fully reliable. I often find myself questioning any sign of obvious fan worship. But quite simply this is one of those rare albums that deserves all of the praise I can give and probably more.
