Polish Death Metal squadron Hate is preparing to head to the studio in December to record the follow-up to 2017’s Tremendum. The new opus, bearing the working title Salve Ignis, is tentatively slated for summer 2019 and will be the band’s debut collaboration with the legendary Metal Blade Records. Details are still surfacing, but the band has so far released two raw pre-production tracks: “Path to Arkhen” and “In The Shrine Of Veles”, and have confirmed that production on the finished record will be handled by the talented Wiesławski brothers at Hertz Studio, Poland (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated, and others). Stay tuned for more info coming soon!

Check out the pre-production for the new Hate song “Path To Arken” at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nc6xztTHK5M.

Hate have been praised by press and fans alike for years for creating lacerating and dark music, proven best on their current album Tremendum (2017). The album saw ATF Sinner (vocals, guitars) utilize the dark aspects of the mystic and arcane Slavonic folklore to explore themes both personal and impersonal. It is an album that is relatable at first listen, but that is hard to fully know.

Vomitory: ‘Raped In Their Own Blood’ and ‘Redemption’ now available as vinyl and digipak CD re-issues with bonus tracks!

Metal Blade Records will re-issue the first two albums by Swedish Death Metal legends Vomitory on January 11th, 2019. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the band – expect more releases and live shows next year!

Both albums will be re-mastered and released on spinesleeve vinyl in the best quality possible – as well as on digipak CD with bonus tracks!

Vomitory comments: “Originally released on a small underground label in 1996, ‘Raped in Their Own Blood’ marked the end of the demo years and the start of a new era of Vomitory. And ‘Redemption‘ (1999) showed a remarkable increase in brutality and progress towards what was about to come. It feels great to have these two death metal classics released by our long-time partner, Metal Blade Records, in time for our 30th Anniversary Reunion in 2019!”
