One of the most consistent hardcore bands of the last 20 years, Hatebreed are possibly the angriest band in the business. Jamey Jasta's throat-tearing roar is as terrifying as ever, and the rest of the band lay down meaty riffs, chunky bass lines and pummeling drums that all send off the 'fuck you' attitude that they have always had. The lyrics, on the other hand, deal not only with aggression and hatred but with unity and standing in the face of adversity (themes the band have always drawn from in order to present themselves as a band that truly care about their fans. This can wear a bit as the album chugs onward, but it's hard to see the band as 'nice guys' when they talk about burning shit and well and truly 'fucking the world, such is the rage they feel in behalf of all those who have been wronged. The fact that every single song essentially sounds the same (featuring some angry hooks, crushing breakdowns and riffs upon riffs upon riffs) means that you can listen to any song from this record and essentially experience everything the album has to offer. In other words, this is a typical hardcore record.
