Solarflesh is the 8th observation from the Polish death/black outfit of Hate and captures the band going upward again after the low flight of Erebos. Their sense in arranging their blast beat driven death/black metal (second (?) only to their fellow country men Behemoth) has shown some progress in here. The band has managed to successfully infuse melody within the blast beat chaos and amplify the majestic feeling that made albums such as Morphosis so great in the first place. That being said, their attempts in exploring the area outside their comfort zone are a hit or miss. The 3.5 rating is about the limited edition of the album. Excluding the bonus tracks, the album is much more solid, close to a 4/5.
