HATE ETERNAL arbeiten in Erik Rutans eigenen Mana Recording Studios an ihrem fünften Studioalbum (ihre zweite Scheibe für Metal Blade) und dem Nachfolger zu Fury & Flames. JJ Hrubovcak wurde als Bassist neu in die Band aufgenommen und das Duo Erik Rutan (Gitarre) und Jade Simonetto (Drums) ist wieder bei der Arbeit.
Frontmann Erik Rutan: "The band has been locked up in Mana Recording Studios doing pre-production for the past 2 months, finishing up songs that we have been writing over the last year in between tours and albums that I've produced, and we feel we have come up with one of Hate Eternal's heaviest, most twisted, evil, melodic, and insane albums yet.
It was my goal to expand upon what the band has done in the past, and add new dynamics and twists to the traditional, dissonant Hate Eternal style, yet keep it in the same vein. It took the three of us really pushing ourselves, and digging deep into the essence of who we are as musicians and writers and players to create something very unique and special. We cannot wait for everyone to hear what we have in store. Look out for updates from the studio over the next few months."
