September 11, 2020 Hatebreed dropped the lyric video for the title track from the album. Have a listen below!

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.

Lead photographer, art director, sometimes editor, and writer for ZrockR Magazine- I am a mother, wife, photographer and a metalhead. Las Vegas Native. I first picked up a camera at 12 years old and I have been carrying one around ever since. I have an incredibly deep connection and love for my Las Vegas local music scene, this is where I first fell in love with music photography and knew that this is what I wanted to be doing with my time here on this planet. I say I'm a metalhead but I really love all kinds of music, I just connect the most with metal. Concerts are my happy place, and the happiest you'll ever see me is at a show with my camera in hand!
