Hatebreed are natives of New Haven, CT. In 1993, the members started playing together for the first time. Their aim was to return to the foundations of hardcore, and they subsequently created fiery 30-second tracks with hard, metallic guitar work and screamed lyrics. The band was comprised of Jamey Jasta (vocals), Lou Richards (guitar), Sean Martin (guitar), Chris Beattie (bass), and Rigg Ross (drums). The band got the chance to gig up and down the East Coast, sharing a stage with such legendary acts as Entombed, Deftones, Slayer, and Napalm Death. In 1997, this ferocious five-piece issued their debut album, titled Satisfaction Is the Death of Desire, via Victory Records. Five years later, they finally landed a major label contract, and they released Perseverance through Universal/Stillborn/Republic. This label also released Hatebreed's 2003 album, The Rise of Brutality. The band's fourth LP, Supremacy, arrived through Roadrunner Records in 2006. Supremacy was the band's first album to feature Frank Novinec, their new guitarist. Earlier, Novinec had honed his skills with such groups as Ringworm, Terror, and Integrity. In 2003, Wayne Lozinak added his considerable guitar chops to the band. The following year, Hatebreed released an LP of covers, For the Lions. They followed up with their latest, self-titled studio set in September. In 2013, Hatebreed released their sixth studio full-length, The Divinity of Purpose.
Hatebreed have experienced a considerable amount of critical acclaim and commercial success. They have landed no fewer than five LPs on Billboard's mainstream album rankings since they debuted in 1993. 2002's Perseverance, 2003's The Rise of Brutality, 2006's Supremacy, 2009's Hatebreed, 2009's For the Lions, and (most recently) 2013's The Divinity of Purpose have all found their way onto the Billboard 200, in addition to making the Hard Rock Albums and Rock Albums charts. By far the most triumphant of these is The Divinity of Purpose. The LP would crack the Billboard 200's Top 20, and it was a Top 10 independent album and rock album. It was a number one entry on the hard rock chart.
The Divinity of Purpose is the sixth studio album by Hatebreed, and it is the successor to their 2009 releases, the For the Lions covers album and the eponymous studio album. This 2013 album is as reliable as duct tape, and its electricity is palpable. It is meatier and more hardcore than the band's preceding efforts, and its 12 songs remain loyal to the group's aim to create energetic, punkish slices of inspiring metal that falls somewhere after the "institutional" offerings of Suicidal Tendencies, Converge, and Pantera. Jamey Jasta's vocals are as relentless as ever. He follows incendiary, Henry Rollins-esque phrasings that briefly court a melody before tossing it to the curb. Jasta is less of a ringmaster than a drill sergeant, and he alternately commands and motivates with his unvarnished charm. This results in a sort of pummelling sonic relentlessness that guarantees listeners an impending and deserved rush of endorphins. On The Divinity of Purpose, Hatebreed use the musical formulas that made their first LPs so successful, but their songcraft has markedly improved in its allegiance to intuitive heavy metal. This album is unyielding, and it may be a difficult introduction for newcomers, but its lyrical and musical insistence delivers great returns with new highlights such as "Honor Never Dies," "Own Your World," "Bitter Truth," and the searing title cut. On this latest LP, the band outpace most of their less determined peers.
Hatebreed's first three demo songs were eventually issued in 1995 as a split 7" with Neglect.
