HATEFX: New Album Title, Cover Artwork Revealed

HATEFX, the Fresno/Livermore, California-based metal band featuring guitarist Glen Alvelais (FORBIDDEN, TESTAMENT, LD/50), has set "Under Destruction" as the title of its new album. The cover artwork for the CD was created by Chilean/Italian digital artist- photographer Claudio Bergamin, who has previously worked with HALFORD, Arjen Lucassen, RATA BLANCA, CRIMINAL, DOGMA and other bands from Europe and America. Bergamin's style could be described as "fantasy illustration/photo manipulation."

"Under Destruction" was recorded at Green Bird studios in Fresno, California with remote supervision of Chilean producer Javier Bassino (Estudios Bassino). Javier engineered and is in the process of mixing and mastering the CD, which marks Alvelais' recording debut with the band.

"The road to this new recording has been very organic," HATEFX frontman G says. "This is the strongest lineup of the band and has given us a fresh outlook and a powerful edge to the music itself. Javier is doing a great job in capturing our vision through the sound." Glen comments: "I can't say enough how excited I am to bring this sound and show to people. We're hoping to get the right distribution deal and get our asses touring. I'm pretty sure that radio will love this and we're ready to tour!"

HATEFX is currently lining up shows in support of the new release and will be playing a number of events this year, including release parties in Fresno and the San Francisco Bay Area.
