Hate Force One
Wave of Destruction
Style: Death Metal
Release date: 21 June, 2013
Playing time: 32:55

A five piece from Germany recorded their debut and it is now ready for you. The band succeeded in creating a rather variable album with influences of old school death metal with groove, black metal parts and modern blast beats.

Take for example the third track "Voices", where they combine the groove of Six Feet Under with fast black metal and Cannibal Corpse kind of riffs. Sure you hear the triggered drums, but that doesn't make their music less interesting. "Face the Mirror" has again a nice groove, but at that moment I lost my attention. Why? Because of the vocals of Alex. His growling becomes boring after a while. There is no variation and it sounds a bit monotone. That is too bad, otherwise the rating would at least be 10 points higher. These Germans write catchy songs with groove and variety and surely are a gain for the death metal scene.

If they are able to bring this live as well, this music will find its way to the death metal fans. Fans of Misery Index have to check out this album also.
