H8TEBALL Set to Unleash the Undead
Scottish masked thrash-deathsters H8TEBALL are proud to announce the signature with The Metallist PR agency for the worldwide promotion of their Undead EP, released on February, 22nd.

With tasty solos, meaty riffs, and heart-stopping bass notes, Undead represents a transitional period from the band’s old version to the new one. Guitarist and original member Scot Duff stated:
“The two tracks Undead and Black Mamba had already been included in a previous EP three years ago. After two members departed, we started the band again with two new brothers and we entered the studio to re-record everything from scratch with our new drummer Liam, while the new vocalist Daniel wrote new lyrics. Nearly two years later the result is the Undead EP.”
Vocalist Daniel Shannon added:
“H8TEBALL does not hate anything except hate itself. The lyrics are written about things in this world that bring people down, and that life is meant to be lived in an easier, better, and happier way. With the lyrics of the Undead EP we aimed to motivate or enlighten people without being preachy and depressing but instead through fun and passion.”

H8TEBALL is a five-piece masked metal band from Kirkcaldy, Scotland. The band was formed in early 2017 with one goal in mind: to make as much mayhem as possible and sounding heavy doing it!
With tasty solos, meaty riffs and heart-stopping bass notes from original members Scot “Rayne” Duff (rhythm guitar), Atholl “Störm” Wood (lead guitar) and Jahren “Nailz” Sherris (bass), the guys were taking steps towards becoming the Monsters of Masked Mayhem, unfortunately being unable to find any stable singer and drummer for any length of time, which put the breaks on things for a short time.
The band has come on leaps and bounds since the addition of Liam “Qlown” McDaid on drums in 2018 and Daniel “Shaggy” Shannon on vocals in early 2019. In little over a year, H8TEBALL have gone from a relatively unknown entity in the Kirkcaldy area to release the Undead EP in February 2020 and fighting through to the Scottish Finals of the very high caliber Bloodstock Open Air’s “Metal 2 the Masses” battle of the bands.
The band continues to aim higher and higher, working hard to create the Mayhem that the World Metal Scene deserves!
