Quality video footage of HATE‘s March 31 performance at Effenaar in Eindhoven, The Netherlands can be seen below (courtesy of “letthedeathmetalflow”).
As previously reported, HATE bassist Slawomir “Mortifer” Archangielskij was found the night of April 5-6 near the German town of Munchberg. The remaining members of the band said: “After the show in Stuttgart, he went to sleep and never woke up. We found him lifeless early in the morning and immediately called an ambulance. He was reanimated, but to no avail. Results of Slawek‘s autopsy should be known soon. In this situation, we decided to cancel the remaining shows and return home. We gave detailed testimonies to the German police. We are shocked and shattered by his sudden, unexpected death. We mourn together with Slawek‘s family and friends.”
Archangielskij joined HATE in January 2007 and appeared on 2010’s “Erebos” and 2013’s “Solarflesh” albums.
HATE‘s “Solarflesh” CD was released in North America on February 5 via Napalm Records. The follow-up to 2010’s “Erebos” was recorded at Sound Division Studio in Warsaw with Filip “Heinrich” Halucha (VESANIA, DECAPITATED) and Arek “Malta” Malczewski (BEHEMOTH‘s sound guy). The effort was mixed at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (DECAPITATED, VADER).
