Hate Eternal

New Jersey native Erik Rutan started his death metal career in the now legendary Ripping Corpse. The band featured a very young Rutan and Shaune Kelley on guitars. If you got to witness them live, their brutality and intensity was more than a little overwhelming. They recorded one full length album, Dreaming with the Dead in 1991. Less than a year later, Ripping Corpse broke up and Rutan went on to join Morbid Angel as a second guitarist. Rutan left Morbid Angel in 2002 to focus fulltime on his side project, Hate Eternal, which he had started in 1997 during a break from Morbid Angel. Hate Eter ...read more

New Jersey native Erik Rutan started his death metal career in the now legendary Ripping Corpse. The band featured a very young Rutan and Shaune Kelley on guitars. If you got to witness them live, their brutality and intensity was more than a little overwhelming. They recorded one full length album, Dreaming with the Dead in 1991. Less than a year later, Ripping Corpse broke up and Rutan went on to join Morbid Angel as a second guitarist. Rutan left Morbid Angel in 2002 to focus fulltime on his side project, Hate Eternal, which he had started in 1997 during a break from Morbid Angel. Hate Eternal’s original line-up consisted of Rutan on guitar and vocals, bassist and co-vocalist Jared Anderson (Morbid Angel), drummer Tim Yueng (Vital Remains, Decrepit Birth) and guitarist Doug Cerrito (Suffocation). Cerrito left after recording the band’s debut, Conquering the Throne. As the band set forth to record their second album, King of All Kings, in 2002, Derek Roddy (Nile, Malevolent Creation) replaced Yeung on drums with Hate Eternal continuing on as a power trio. Soon after Jared Anderson left the band due to personal issues and was replaced by Randy Piro (Gigan). In 2005 the band released their highly acclaimed third album, I, Monarch. In 2006 drummer Derek Roddy announced his departure from Hate Eternal. The band continued on with scheduled tour plans with the help of temporary drummers Kevin Talley (Dying Fetus, Misery Index and Chimaira) and Reno Killerich (Dimmu Borgir, Old Man’s Child and Vile), who was with the band during the filming of their first DVD, The Perilous Fight. The band then went on hiatus and Rutan went to work on producing several highly acclaimed metal albums by bands such as Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, Vital Remains, Demiricous and Through the Eyes of the Dead at his own Mana Recording Studios in Tampa, Florida. During the band’s period of inactivity, Randy Piro decided to leave the band. In mid-2006 Rutan began thinking about the next Hate Eternal project. He had been talking to his close friend and former Hate Eternal bassist Jared Anderson about possibly rejoining the band. Then Rutan’s world was shaken to its core with the untimely passing of Anderson in October 2006. After contemplating the future of Hate Eternal, Rutan decided to deal with his grief by honoring the wishes and memory of his long time friend and continue on with the band. At the onset of writing for the new album Rutan worked alone, but it wasn’t long before he needed to start putting together a new line-up. Rutan brought in long time friend, ex-Ripping Corpse bandmate and Dim Mak guitarist, Shaune Kelley on second guitar and they worked on writing music together for the first time in more than twenty years. Canadian drummer Jade Simonetto (Camilla Rhodes) actually contacted Rutan via Myspace in the summer of 2007. After posting videos on YouTube of himself playing Hate Eternal songs for Rutan to check out, he got the opportunity to audition for the band and landed the spot as permanent drummer. Lastly Rutan filled the bass position by recruiting another old friend, Cannibal Corpse bassist, Alex Webster. With a line-up intact Hate Eternal hunkered down and got to the business of making some new music. The passing of Anderson had a profound affect on Rutan and was coming through the music the band was making, influencing the overall vibe of the project was taking on. « hide
