HATE ETERNAL's ERIK RUTAN Featured In New Podcast

Metal Blade Records has posted a brand new podcast featuring HATE ETERNAL's Erik Rutan talking about the group's new album, "Fury & Flames". Check it out at this location.

"Fury & Flames" sold 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release,e according to Nielsen SoundScan. The follow-up to 2005's "I, Monarch" is said to be the band's most diverse and emotionally fuelled record to date, due mainly in part to the passing of bassist and good friend Jared Anderson.

HATE ETERNAL founder and vocalist/guitarist Erik Rutan recently did an interview with MTV.com where he stated, "Jared was one of my best friends, and his passing away really affected me and influenced this record a lot. It's a very dark and heavy record — not just heavy as in 'heavy metal,' but heavy-hearted as well."

"Fury and Flames" features new members Shaune Kelley on second guitar and Jade Simonetto on drums. The addition of Shaune means that this will be the first time HATE ETERNAL are able to perform as a four-piece live. Alex Webster of CANNIBAL CORPSE fame stepped in on bass for the recording, but due to his hectic schedule with CANNIBAL will not be able to tour with the band.

HATE ETERNAL's video for the song "Bringer of Storms" can be viewed below.
