Romania's Metalhead.ro recently conducted an interview with guitarist Frank Novinec of the Connecticut-based hardcore/metal band HATEBREED. The chat is now available for streaming at this location.
HATEBREED will release its long-awaited new covers album, "For The Lions", in Europe on May 11, 2009 via Century Media Records. Due in the U.S. on Tuesday, May 5 via E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records), this new release is the follow-up to the band's #1 Billboard-charting DVD "Live Dominance", which came out last September.
The songs on "For The Lions" were carefully selected by HATEBREED to represent a panoramic view of some of their favorite artists and greatest musical inspirations. Having completed the album in 2008, the band felt their work wasn't done yet and just returned to the studio with original guitar player Wayne Lozinak to record additional tracks for the album. The four new covers are among the most bludgeoning the band has yet to record. They are "Ghosts Of War" (SLAYER), "Supertouch/Shitfit" (BAD BRAINS), "Thirsty" (BLACK FLAG) and "Suicidal Maniac" (SUICIDAL TENDENCIES).
"For The Lions" was produced, engineered and mixed by long-time band associate Chris "Zeuss" Harris.
