HATEBREED's 'The Divinity Of Purpose' = Explosive Musical Dynamite!

The day has arrived, Connecticut Hardcore Metallers HATEBREED have unleashed 'The Divinity Of Purpose', their most explosive record to date. This is the bands debut album on their NEW label home
Razor & Tie Records. The bands promise of "all pit, no shit" on their seventh studio album, was delivered in style!

Even though HATEBREED have released some excellent music in the past, this time around the chemistry of the band members - Jamey Jasta (vocals), Chris Beattie (bass), Matt Byrne (drums), Wayne Lozinak and
Frank Novinec (guitars) - came across from the first notes on the album opener "Put It To The Torch" all the way until
"Idolized And Vilified" concluded the bands batch of musical dynamite.

One element that really sets 'The
Divinity Of Purpose' is that guitarist Wayne Lozinak was more involved in the writing process from beginning to end. As a result, the guitar parts are significantly more technical this time around. But make no mistake, HATEBREED's NEW album carries the bands globally known signature sound and their musical formula: anthemic lyrics, addictive grooves, crushing riffs. As the wise always say: don't fix what is not broken! We are glad to see and hear that the HATEBREED boys keep getting wiser and stronger than all!
"I just think having the good studio environment and having the good environment on the road has made it easier for everybody to be creative and just do better. When you feel better you do better, and luckily we’ve been on an upswing. And there’s been a resurgence with the band and we have been able to do a little bit less touring and have a little less of a grinding schedule which I think has made everybody happy and more focused on the creative process and on the performance.

"When Wayne came in and did this record and when he did the last record, too, it was a very good working environment and he picked up all the material very quickly and his performances were spot on. He works great with Zeuss and Josh [Wilbur] and all the great ideas Chris brought the table in the pre-production process and all my riffs that I brought to the table he picked up on very quickly. The same thing goes for Matt and Frank, just touring everybody gets along great and it’s just been a really good working environment.

At the end of the day a lot of fans might not understand that it is a job, it is our career, touring, recording, being a fulltime musician and just like a regular job it can be a little bit of a grind. We’ve tried to keep it from becoming that and the last couple years has been really good for that, just being a good work environment and having fun."
