Polish extreme metallers HATE have completed work on their new album, "Erebos", for a November 2010 European release via Listenable Records. The CD, which will be made available in North America in January 2011 as an "extended version" featuring bonus live material, was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (DECAPITATED, VADER).
"Erebos", which comes from ancient Greek and means literally "deep darkness" or shadow, will contain ten new songs, which are said to be a fusion of blackened death metal, industrial and ambient sounds, deathcore and heavy metal.
"Erebos" track listing:
02. Lux Aeterna
04. Quintessence Of Higher Suffering
05. Trinity Moons
06. Hero Cults
10. Luminous Horizon

ATF Sinner previously stated about the band's new material: "Since the premiere of 'Morphosis' we have toured different parts of the world and faced a ton of challenges over the course of the last two years. All of the hard work that we have put in the band and everything that we have experienced is reflected in our new songs, which we know are our best yet.
"'Erebos' is going to contain extreme metal to the full with different musical styles incorporated. We explore areas that have not been associated with HATE before, and what we have created is a mixture of styles all packed in an extreme and vicious form. It is still 100 percent HATE, but more elaborate, sophisticated and, in a way, redefined.
"We have titled the material 'Erebos', which basically means darkness of human soul — and is full of analogies to condition of the human living in today's world who is a slave to his anger, weaknesses and complexes. Existing in a fictitious, virtual world, he is a slave to his dreams and does not really live but dreams that he lives."

HATE released its last album, "Morphosis", in Europe in February 2008 via Listenable Records. The CD was mixed in July/August 2007 at Hertz Studio in Poland by Wieslawski Bros. (VADER, DECAPITATED).
