Industrial death/black metal mongers HATE will soon enter Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland to record their new album, tentatively entitled "Katharsis". HATE has been working on the new material for a few months now and is in the process of doing pre-production — creating samples and backgrounds for what is now eight finished songs! The album, which is going to be the follow-up to the highly acclaimed "Anaclasis - A Haunting Gospel of Malice & Hatred", is said to be the most mature and ambitious material from the band thus far, demonstraiting a great step forward in terms of composition and arrangements. Songtitles set to appear on the new record include "Omega", "Katharsis", "Apotheosis", "Threnody", "Slaves To Their Graves" and "Resurrection Machine". A January 2008 release via Listenable Records is expected.
After releasing "Anaclasis", HATE has focused on promoting the record, touring Europe twice with the likes of CARPATHIAN FOREST and DECAPITATED, and headlining the Metal Spirit Resurrection Tour Vol. 4 in Russia, as well as Rebel Angels Tour 2007 in Poland. HATE has also taken part in important festivals such as Party.San Open Air in Germany and Winter Assault in the Czech Republic. The band is going to visit Ukraine and Belarus for a dozen of concerts this year and embark on the second leg of its Polish tour, featuring stops in 10 more cities. They will also take part in Pushkin Drive Open Air in St. Petersburg, Russia on July 7 and headline the fifth edition of Filthrock Festival in Germany in September.
