What should we expect?

With this release, I predict that Hatebreed will continue with their obvious aggressive sound, and matching that aggression with our current state of existence as a society. Without going too into detail, I’m hoping to hear messages and thought provoking lyrics that directly relate to our reliance and constant need for immediate satisfaction. For years I’ve seen this band as a positive piece of the metal scene. (I have ‘In Ashes they Shall Reap’ tattooed on my thigh, so to say I’m a big fan is an understatement.) I’ve always loved the fact that although their name is HATEBREED, they’ve written some of the most positive and encouraging lyrics, which completely contrasts their name.
