Polish extreme metallers HATE have inked a worldwide deal with Napalm Records.
Commented the band's frontman ATF Sinner: "We are really proud to have found a new partner with Napalm Records for our future endeavors!
"Even though we have been touring intensively in support of our latest album, 'Erebos', we have already started writing new material for a 2012 release. It sounds very promising to my ear, and with this new record deal, I am quite sure it will definitely signify a progress in our career. At the same time, I'd like to show my appreciation for our past record label, Listenable Records, for their dedication and help that we experienced thru years of collaboration. I wish you all the best!"
HATE will embark on a European headlining tour on September 16 with support from VESANIA, NEGURA BUNGET, INFERI and LIVARKAHIL.
HATE recently finished filming a video for the song "Erebos" with the Warsaw-based Agency Moderna and visual art group Suka Off, who are well known for their performances and film art activities. The entire clip, which will make its online debut later this month, was shot at club M25 in Warsaw, famous for its post-industrial atmosphere.
Commented ATF Sinner: "We've managed to gather a great group of people consisting of Moderna Agency and Suka Off to work on this video. It's a dark, apocalyptic vision of humanity showing its downfall, moral and biological degradation. In the script we used lots of metaphors and symbolism; some of it is based on classical Ancient Greek tragedies. We tried to capture the destructive mechanisms of human nature and show the basic instincts in man getting out of control. The main figure in the clip is Erebos embodiment of Darkness dominating the human psyche and actions. Our goal was to make a video on a high artistic level, avoiding clichs and all those accessories usually associated with metal clips."
"Erebos" is the title track of HATE's latest album, which came out last year via Listenable Records. The CD was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (DECAPITATED, VADER).
"Erebos", which comes from ancient Greek and means literally "deep darkness" or shadow, contains ten new songs, which are said to be a fusion of blackened death metal, industrial and ambient sounds, deathcore and heavy metal.
