I told you back in November that Hatebreed had put out a new track that I didn’t hate. I’ve listened to that track quite a few times and it have come to like it a lot. I have been wondering how the rest of Hatebreed‘s new album The Divinity Of Purpose was going to sound, hoping to myself that “Put It To The Torch” wasn’t going to be the only good track. Well, it’s not the only good track, take my word for it. Continue reading »
In celebration of their 10th anniversary, legendary metallic hardcore group, First Blood, are set to release a free covers album as a tribute to the many bands that have paved the way and inspired them. With the promise of even more covers to come, the following bands have been confirmed to be covered: Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, Earth Crisis, Agnostic Front, Madball, All Out War, Biohazard, and Suicidal Tendencies. The album is set to debut sometime during “the holidays” which I’m guessing is most logically, Christmas. Till then, bedmosh to these songs below. Continue reading »
I haven’t been a fan of Hatebreed for a long, long time, but the bands new track that they’ve just released is nothing to sneeze at. I went into expecting 100% suck but what I took from it was this: this might be the best that Hatebreed has sounded in a long time. It’s fast, it’s heavy and Jamey doesn’t sound like a douche. It’s the Hatebreed that I remember! Check out “Put It To The Torch” after the jump. The Divinity Of Purpose will be released on January 29th. Continue reading »
House of Blow ( a hip-hop project featuring Glassjaw’s Daryl Palumbo and ex-Hatebreed guitarist Sean Martin) have been working on new material as of late. They are apparently working with rapper, Cage, who posted the following message on twitter that was then re-tweeted by House of Blow:
I’ve heard of this band before, but I never actually listened to them and I probably wouldn’t have if Metal Underground hadn’t posted that they had released a new music video. I thought to myself, “should I actually listen to this? Fuck it.” and I hit the play button. What immediately poured out over my speakers was obvious Hatebreed worship with 100 Demons-esque vocals (the scream-y ones. Not the sing-y ones). This kind of shit is still called “hardcore” isn’t it? Or is there another name I can call this? Much like Hatebreed, Lionheart seem to have that jock mentality about them. I’m not into it, man. I gave it a listen and I just don’t dig. Unlike most bullshit posts, I want to rate this band.
Musical ability: C
Overall rating: D
Sorry, but this is no bueno for Gnarly. If you like it though, spread the bro love.

Is the term “jock rock” still floating around? I only ask because I just listened to the new Jamey Jasta solo single featuring Mr. Zakk Wylde and… Wow. What a doozy. Not in a good way, either. “Jock rock” is a terrible thing and I thought it died off years ago. I suppose it’s making a comeback with Jasta’s new album. Check out audacity that is Jasta and Wylde.
What did you think? Jasta’s new album Jasta comes out July 26.
Today, I recollect on Ozzfest 2006. Great year for me. I saw Hatebreed (for the third time, still amazing), The Red Chord, Black Label Society, Bad Acid Trip, Between The Buried and Me and Bleeding Through (for the second time). On top of that amazing line up, I saw Walls of Jericho. I had heard of WoJ before, but hadn’t heard much of their music. Seeing them play, I was blown away by Candace Kucsulain’s vocals (and she is beautiful on top of that) and the musicianship of the entire band. Their whole show went awesome. By the time “Trigger Full of Promises” ended their set, I was a fan. I wanted to meet Candace and tell her how awesome I thought the band was. I saw her leave the stage with a man (I guessed her significant other?) and head into to the crowded merch stands area. I followed behind her for quite a while, Sharpie in hand. I wanted to at least get her autograph. About the time she ducked into the bathroom, I figured it was a lost cause. I went back and watched the rest of the show. I still wish I would have caught Candace, just to let her know how gnarly she was. But, oh well.
