HATEBREED kicks off their “10 Years of Perseverance” tour tonight in Clifton Park, NY with direct support from Whitechapel and special guests All Shall Perish and Deez Nuts!

Guitarist Wayne Lozinak states, “I’m very excited that the album is tracked! It was a great experience working with Zeuss and Josh Wilbur on this one. Every song is heavy, straight and to the point, in keeping with the traditional HATEBREED sound. Can’t wait to put some of these songs in the set and start playing them live!”
HATEBREED bassist Chris Beattie went on to say, “This is the album that HATEBREED fans have been waiting for – catchy, ignorant and full of energy!”

HATEBREED released their self titled record in 2009 to plenty of critical accolades. Most notably, Revolver Magazine declared the band “The Biggest Band in Hardcore” in their cover story on the band. HATEBREED released a few music videos supporting this album, most notably for their single “In Ashes They Shall Reap” which can be seen HERE.
HATEBREED “S/T” can be purchased on iTunes HERE.
Normally, I am not a fan of cover albums, finding them lame at best. It’s always been my belief that if a band is going to take the time to go into the studio and record an albums worth of someone else’s material, why can’t they make the extra effort and record their own songs? However, Hatebreed has me rethinking the cover album a little bit.
For The Lions is a slamming disc containing 19 of the hardest covers you’ll ever hear, by bands that are not everyday household names, featuring songs that you do not experience often. That’s what makes this record stand out from the overpopulated crowd of cover albums.
For The Lions opens with a ripping version of Slayer’s Ghosts of War and never lets go from there. Metallica, Suicidal Tendencies, Black Flag, and The Misfits are all covered on this disc as well. Great songs from lesser known bands such as Madball, Obituary, and Bad Brains are included for your listening pleasure.
What is most unique about For The Lions is lead singer Jamey Jasta’s ability to channel the spirit of the frontmen for each of the bands that he is covering. During Metallica’s Escape, there are moments when I could swear that I was listening to the actual Metallica version of the song. The band plays the music note for note and Jasta comes as close as he can to sounding like the original singer. This is more a tribute than a cover, but it works wonderfully.
Other songs are definitely a Hatebreed interpretation as the vocals go more toward the gravelly side that Hatebreed is known for. However, not knowing the original versions of those songs, Jasta could be spot on with those vocal inflections.
The music itself is fast, loud, and raw; music your mother or wife would probably hate. Angry speed and thrash metal with a powerful lead singer belching out the hits. It fills you with a raw energy that makes you want to throw your fist in the air, scream as loud as you can, and shout at that you are alive! Hatebreed channels your inner warrior through the power of music and has a fun time doing it.
Covering 19 of their favorite songs, Hatebreed scores a winner with For The Lions. Incredible guitar work, exceptional vocals, and a ton of raw power and energy highlight this disc as a standout piece that is worthy of adding to your heavy metal collection. If you’ve never heard the original versions of these tunes, then this is an excellent introduction. If you know the songs well, this is a great way to appreciate a new interpretation on these classics. Feel the power that Hatebreed delivers with For The Lions.

Band Welcomes Back Original Guitarist Wayne Lozinak; Splitting With Guitar Player Sean Martin
Hardcore metal pioneers HATEBREED are set to release their long-awaited new covers album, “FOR THE LIONS,” on Tuesday May 5th, 2009 via E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records). This new release is the follow-up to the band’s #1 Billboard charting DVD, “LIVE DOMINANCE” (released September of 2008) which left fans “Picking their teeth up off the floor” and “sounding immense” according to Outburn.
The songs on “FOR THE LIONS” were carefully selected by HATEBREED to represent a panoramic view of some of their favorite artists and greatest musical inspirations. Having completed the album in 2008, the band felt their work wasn’t done yet and just returned to the studio with original guitar player Wayne Lozinak to record additional tracks for the album. The 4 new covers are among the most bludgeoning the band has yet to record. These include, “Ghosts Of War” (Slayer), “Supertouch/Sh**fit” (Bad Brains), “Thirsty” (Black Flag) and “Suicidal Maniac” (Suicidal Tendencies).
“FOR THE LIONS” was produced, engineered and mixed by long-time band associate Zeuss.
For a preview of “Suicidal Maniac,” please click on www.myspace.com/hatebreed.
In additional HATEBREED news, the band announces the departure of guitar player Sean M. Martin, welcoming back to the fold original guitarist Wayne Lozinak.
Front man Jamey Jasta says, “I speak on behalf of all of us and we support Sean’s decision to leave and want him to be happy and successful at everything he does. There are no bad feelings at all and you’ll probably see him hanging on stage at some of our local shows. We’re family and he will be missed but HATEBREED will forge on.”
Sean M. Martin comments, “After 10 years, I’ve decided to leave HATEBREED. This in no way reflects my personal relationship with Jamey, Chris, Matt and Frank; they’re four of my closest friends and I’ll always love them with all my heart. I want to thank all of the fans as well as the guys in the band and crew, past and present, for giving me some of the best times of my life.”
HATEBREED will play a special one-off show on May 1st at Toad’s Place in New-Haven, CT, performing songs from the forthcoming covers album and of course, long-time favorites.
HATEBREED will also be kicking off a short world tour appearing at the following European Festivals:
June 20th / Hellfest, Clisson, France
July 3rd / Vainstream, Munster, Germany

If you were one of the people that wanted to check out the Punisher War Zone movie, but missed it in the short span that it was at the box office, never fear! The movie will be released on DVD and Blue ray on March 17th.
The soundtrack for this movie is a pretty impressive mix of hard rock and metal. It features the first new Rob Zombie song in quite some time, as well as some great tracks by Slipknot, Slayer, Seether, and Static-X.
I have never been a big fan of movie soundtracks, but I found myself headbanging quite a bit to this disc. Some of the songs are extremely heavy and are not for the feint of heart.
If you haven’t picked up Slipknot’s new CD yet, this soundtrack features their new song “Psychosocial”. This is easily the best song off of their new CD “All Hope is Gone”. To my ears, this one of the coolest new heavy metal tracks to be released in recent years.
Not every song falls in the hard rock & metal genre. “Genesis” from Justice is a pop/dance music tune. “Showdown” from Pendulum falls closer to the techno side of the fence. It has a harder edge to it, which makes it quite listenable. These songs seem like an odd fit amongst so many hard rock and metal acts, but they do sound good when played loudly, and offers a good breaking point amongst the heavier tracks.
I can honestly say that I haven’t listened to Hatebreed or Rammallah before. Hatebreed’s style of metal reminds me a lot of Slipknot. The singer has an extremely coarse voice. The guitars are heavy and the percussion is very good.
Ramallah reminds me of a cross between Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails. It is interesting, but not essential.
If you are a fan of today’s metal acts, you will likely enjoy this soundtrack. To me, the first three songs on this disc are worth the price of admission. This is the only place you will find Rob Zombie’s “War Zone” making this a must own CD. You can listen to Rob Zombie’s War Zone at this link.
1. War Zone – Rob Zombie
2. Final Six – Slayer
3. Psychosocial – Slipknot
4. Historia Calamitatum – Rise Against
5. Fallen – Seether
6. Bulletproof – Kerli
7. Take Me Away – 7 Days Away
8. The Past Is Proof – Senses Fail
9. Butterfly Wings – Machines Of Loving Grace
10. Genesis – Justice
11. Showdown – Pendulum
12. Refuse/Resist – Hatebreed
13. Lunatic – Static-X
14. Days of Revenge – Ramallah
LIONSGATE RELEASES PUNISHER: WAR ZONE SOUNDTRACK WITH NEW SINGLE “WAR ZONE” FROM ROB ZOMBIE
Lionsgate is pleased to announce the upcoming soundtrack release to PUNISHER: WAR ZONE, from Marvel Comics’ latest film adaptation of fictional vigilante and deadly antihero Frank Castle. The lethal motion picture soundtrack features a powerful collection of A-list rockers including the first new music in 3 years from Rob Zombie in addition to heart-pounding songs from rock icons such as Seether, Slayer, Slipknot and Rise Against. The fifteen-track album attacks stores on 11/25/08. The film opens nationwide on December 5th, 2008.
The original track “War Zone”, written for and inspired by the film, contains the kind of raw, throttling energy that has made Rob Zombie a platinum selling artist. The song will also serve as the first single from the soundtrack. About his contribution, Rob Zombie said: “I love writing music for films, rather than just throwing them an unwanted B side or remix. This track was written exclusively for Punisher War Zone. A punishing track for a punishing movie.”
The record also features Slayer’s 2008 Grammy winning “Final Six” and current chart-topping singles from Slipknot “Psychosocial” and SeetherFallen”. The beatdown doesn’t stop there, with a broad mix of new and unreleased music that spans every niche of the rock genre, including unreleased songs by premiere punk group Rise Against and emo scenesters Senses Fail. Dan Trapp of Senses Fail had this to say: “We are super excited to be a part of the Punisher legacy… when we heard we were going to be involved, we all threw up in our hands out of excitement.”
Adding to the epic soundscape of PUNISHER: WAR ZONE is one lucky winner from the Lionsgate/Clear Channel “Unsigned Artist Contest” that was hosted last month. The contest attracted over 5,000 bands and millions of listeners. The winner will be announced on 10/24/08 at www.punisherwarzonemusic.com. Lionsgate Music President, Jay Faires adds, “teaming up with Clear Channel has been a phenomenal experience. The response to the Punisher contest has been incredible, and we are absolutely thrilled about introducing one of these talented unsigned bands to the world”
Providing extra ammunition to round out the album are emerging artists Kerli, and highly praised electronica duo Justice. This all adds up to make the PUNISHER: WAR ZONE soundtrack one of the most anticipated of the season.
The PUNISHER: WAR ZONE track listing is as follows:
* indicates new/unreleased track
Rob Zombie “War Zone”*
Slayer “Final Six”
Rise Against “Historia Calamitatum”*
Contest Winner- TBD
