Awakening of the Liar Reviews

Reviewer :  level 2   (92/100)

Effectively, the only way I even found out Hate existed was basically due to seeing a picture of Decapitated frontman Sauron wearing a band t-shirt of theirs whilst milling about at a live gig a year or so ago. Of course, with the size of my respect for Decapitated, I took the approach of what's good enough for him, I've got to at least give it a shot.

Now regardless of whatever label you want to stick on this band, there is no doubting whatsoever that this band is without a shadow of a doubt a death metal band. Both technical and brutal, possibly brutal through technicality, Hate manage to bludgeon you senseless with a big stick but at the same time amaze you by the intricate nature of the riffs and how all the instruments come together in the musical equivalent of a Communist ideal and work together toward the common goal.

Some songs on here verge more towards the emphasis on either technicality or brutality, but some songs - ie the slightly humourously (till you read the lyrics) titled opener 'Flagellation' - manage to blend the two seamlessly together.

Quite frankly, whilst some people have no doubt already written off Hate, simply because the measure of good Polish Death Metal has already been set and moved up by the likes of Decapitated & Vader, if you like your death metal with not just brutal and technical but also with stellar musicianship, then you have to at least give Hate a blast.

Not give Hate a listen, give them a blast... then you'll truly apprecia
