HATE ETERNAL's new album, "Fury & Flames" sold 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release, 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's video for the song "Bringer of Storms" can be viewed below.
