HATE ETERNAL new album details

Tampa, Florida's HATE ETERNAL are back with "Fury and Flames" claiming to be the band's most diverse and emotionally fuelled record to date due mainly in part to the passing of bassist and good friend Jared Anderson. Founder, vocalist/guitarist Erik Rutan recently stated, "Jared was one of my best friends, and his passing away really affected me and influenced this record a lot. It's a very dark and heavy record — not just heavy as in 'heavy metal,' but heavy-hearted as well."

"Fury and Flames" will feature cover art by Paul Romano and features new members Shaune Kelley on second guitar, Jade Simonetto on drums and guest Alex Webster of CANNIBAL CORPSE fame stepped in on bass for the recording.
