Specialists/collaborators reviews

As a fan, you come to expect a certain level of quality from Hatebreed and Supremacy does not disappoint in the slightest. From start to finish Supremacy is a vital and energetic album capturing the sharper and harder aspects of the bands sound.

The album as a whole is very strong and never suffers from any dip in quality, there are no weak tracks and the album overall is just the right length to feel complete without dragging on.

Compared to the previous two albums Supremacy seems to be exploring the band's heavier influences more, with a stronger focus on that part of the band's sound than other aspects, for example their are fewer sections that could be described as punk influenced and the songs are less straightforward in composition and use notes and patterns in places more traditionally associated with much more extreme bands. The album is by no means a departure, the lion's share pf the music sounds the way you would expect but it does concentrate more one side of their sound than others in places. Songs like the furious opener 'Defeatist,' and the crowd favourite 'Destroy Everything,' a bursting with power and swagger and luckily contain the usual Jasta lyrical content about overcoming of odds, self realization and self actualization, overall very positive and empowering messages to deliver.

After the deeper and harsher production of Th Rise of Brutality the band decided to hand the production over to metal production expert Zeuss who was able to create a perfectly cutting and forceful style that perfectly suited the bands faster moments.

Standout moments include 'Spitting Venom,' which contains some unusually catchy guitar parts and 'As Diehard As They Come,' which is almost impossible not to sing along to.

Overall Supremacy is a great Hatebreed album, definitely worth checking out if you are think you might like the band and utterly essential if you already do like the band.
Supremacy is the 4th full-length studio album by American hardcore/ metal act Hatebreed. The band switched labels from Universal to Roadrunner Records for this release. The 3 years between the release of The Rise of Brutality (2003) and Supremacy were more or less spend constantly touring. Hatebreed are one of the most busy and hard working touring acts in metal.

The music on the album is a mix of hardcore and metal. Hard hitting and relentlessly aggressive. Jamey Jasta´s vocals are some of the most convinsingly aggressive vocals I´ve heard in a while. you´ll of course also experience the trademark hardcore riot gang/ bully choir backing vocals on several of the songs. The music varies from mid- to fast paced metallic hardcore to brick heavy breakdowns. There are 13 tracks on the album. All are 3 minutes or less in playing time. These are short, simple and powerful tracks. Made to work in a live environment. Acts like Pro-Pain and Sick of it All are valid references.

While the album certainly is very enjoyable, the production by Zeuss is powerful and professional and the musicianship is excellent, the songs are a bit too formulaic in the end for my taste. Of course with songs like Defeatist, Mind Over all and Destroy Everything the band kick so much ass that my taste is blown to bits and I´m sure others won´t find the lack of adventurous ideas much of a problem. I can´t quite give the 4 but it´s a big 3.5 star rating.
