Regarding the musical direction of the new HATEBREED material, singerJamey Jasta told “Maximum Threshold”, “We did enough experimenting, I think, on the last record… A lot of people really liked that record and itdid gain us a lot of new fans, but on this record, with the 10-year anniversary of [HATEBREED‘s 2002 album] ‘Perseverance’ and withWayne [Lozinak, guitar] being back in the band — this will be his second record with us — it’s just fun to kind of keep with the old-school influences. I hear more CRO-MAGS and KILLING TIME and SHEER TERROR and OBITUARY and BOLT THROWER and SLAYER andENTOMBED and those kind of ’80s and ’90s influences in there. Which is fun for us, because we emulate the bands that we love. We try to make it our own sound and make it our own style, but at the end of the day, we’re just fans of those styles of bands.”
“The Divinity Of Purpose” will be supported by extensive global touring that will stretch well into 2014.
HATEBREED is currently on the road with LAMB OF GOD, IN FLAMES andSYLOSIS and will headline the Persistence Tour 2013 in Europe in January.

San Francisco Bay Area metallers DEATH ANGEL have completed recording the lead vocals for the follow-up to 2010’s “Relentless Retribution” for an October release via Nuclear Blast Records. The band’s seventh CD is being tracked at AudioHammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, AUGUST BURNS RED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, ALL THAT REMAINS, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER) and DEATH ANGEL guitarist Rob Cavestany handling production duties. The cover artwork is being created by Brent Elliot White (JOB FOR A COWBOY, CARNIFEX, WHITECHAPEL), who also worked on “Relentless Retribution”.
Cavestany previously stated about DEATH ANGEL’s upcoming album: “‘Relentless’ turned out the way we wanted, so we we’re taking it to the next level with the same team… We had a blast doing the last record [atAudioHammer] and now we know each other better and how well we work together.
“It was our idea all along to go directly into the studio following the end of [DEATH ANGEL’s most recent] tour, without taking time off.
