HATE ETERNAL Announces New Drummer

Florida-based band extreme metal act HATE ETERNAL has announced the addition of drummer Jade Simonetto to the group's ranks.

Commented guitarist/vocalist Erik Rutan (ex-MORBID ANGEL), "Jade and I have been working together for six months or so, and his incredible skill and dedication to extreme drumming and groove has made him the perfect drummer for HATE ETERNAL. We gel on everything from all the old songs to the new and the creativity process has been amazing.

"Working with Jade on the new songs, there is so much diversity and signature drumming to the melodies and riffs.

"We have been in the middle of pre-production right now for weeks and will doing pre-production till the end of August. We will then start recording the drum tracks for our album!

"I am super-excited about the new material and Alex [Webster, CANNIBAL CORPSE] is coming up with some incredible bass lines!

"This album is covering a lot more ground than we have previously and I am excited about jamming with Jade and Alex, and a suprise in the works! A lot more groove and diversity in an extreme way.

"We will record and mix between now and October, with an early 2008 release on Metal Blade."

CANNIBAL CORPSE's Alex Webster was recruited to play bass on HATE ETERNAL's new album following the departure of Randy Piro Jr.

Webster and Rutan have had a close working relationship prior to collaborating on HATE ETERNAL's new album. Rutan produced CANNIBAL CORPSE's latest CD, "Kill" (2006)

HATE ETERNAL signed a new record deal with Metal Blade Records in January 2007.

Formed in 1997, HATE ETERNAL's goal has always been to challenge musical limitations and create new boundaries with no compromise; to obtain goals aimed at by many yet reached by only a select few; to create music that not only defies all clichés, but that creates a true sense of power, dissonance and consonance, heaviness and speed, melody and brutality, simply put horrific hymns. Rutan has crafted an impressive career by attaining that goal consistently for well over a decade with his legendary work in RIPPING CORPSE and MORBID ANGEL, not to mention his other career as engineer/ producer for bands such as CANNIBAL CORPSE, SOILENT GREEN, SIX FEET UNDER, CELLADOR, VITAL REMAINS, PREMONITIONS OF WAR, GOATWHORE and INTO THE MOAT, just to name a few.
