It’s amazing how many different genre titles this hybrid music from HATEBREED takes on. Whether you call it hardcore punk, metallic hardcore, crossover thrash, hardcore and crust, beatdown hardcore or simply metal core, one thing is for sure…. this is for the mosh pit lovers. I have to admit that this kind of hybrid music may not be of my all time favorites but how can i resist it when it is done so well as is the case on the debut album SATISFACTION IS THE DEATH OF DESIRE. On this album we don’t get any pretension of this and then giving you that. It is all pretty clear from note one that aggression is the theme and that is exactly what is delivered and delivered quite well may i add.

The tracks are all short and to the point. In fact the fourteen tracks with the longest being a whopping 2:38 only amount to 25:45 in duration. There is no time for anything even remotely slow and sentimental here. This is 100% pure adrenaline for the entire duration. Jamey Jasta has the perfect mosh vocals for this music and although the thrashiness has a Pantera-esque feel to it at times, the band never goes too far in any direction where they feel like a clone of any other. Punk and metal form a perfect marriage on this short but sweet recording and although i’m not super familiar with this band’s output, i have become enamored enough from this debut to check out more. Headbanging with no mercy is what you will get and if you’re in the right mood it will scratch that itch like a nimble claw on your favorite pet.

I've saw them live twice and can confirm it is a lot of fun.

yes they are indeed one of the most moshpit friendly acts around. Personally I think their material are often a bit too same sounding throughout a full album, but I´ve heard they kill it live.
