Polish extreme metallers HATE have entered Sound Division Studio in Warsaw with Filip "Heinrich" Halucha (VESANIA, DECAPITATED) and Arek "Malta" Malczewski (BEHEMOTH's sound guy) to begin recording their new album, "Solarflesh", for a January 2013 release via Napalm Records.
Commented HATE guitarist/vocalist Adam "ATF Sinner" Buszko: "We are aware that 'Solarflesh' is going to be our sickest, most hypnotic and diverse album up to date — the biggest challenge and definitely new chapter in our career. It’s not just like recording another album… it's a real transition!
"On this album we definitely explore new territories and push the boundaries of this beautiful and sick genre to its absolute limits! The material contains 12 collages. Most of them are insanely fast (270 bpm). Others are groovy, trance-like mantras that seem to haunt you forever. They all have rich background of samples and other elements that make them sound multidimensional. We also have several dark, ambient compositions that seem like complete avantgarde. I've been working on them with Michal Staczkun, the guy who did excellent job on our previous album, 'Erebos'. We are also working on a few songs with Androniki Skoula, a singer from Greece, known for her involvement in the band CHAOSTAR, as well as collaboration with SEPTICFLESH and ROTTING CHRIST. She's adding some 'Hellenic' flair to the songs that makes them even more elaborate."

"Solarflesh" will be mixed next month at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (DECAPITATED, VADER).
