This album is furiously angry and full of the hate and aggression we have learned to love TAIM for. Its more polished and professional, tighter and cleaner, yet still as barbaric and vile as their earlier albums.
Hate starts in a meanacing and atmospheric way with "Reign of Darkness". The drum sound alone is worth listening to this album for. Once it gets going, it doesn't stop. Purest Strain of Hate, Immolation, gates of Misery all smash along at ungodly speeds.
Expect breakdowns and blast beats. Expect viscious vocals and brutal riffs. Expect frantic solos. This isn't a walk in the park, this is setting the park on fire, to a modern death-metal soundtrack.
This is Hate.
