4.0 out of 5 stars I was surprised! June 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Erik Rutan has outdone himself again. This is by far the best HATE ETERNAL album. The riffs are much more memorable than the lst two and this album seems to have more direction which lacked in the last two releases. The album has violent riffs and melodies through out the album with technical but good guitar solos (Erik's solos contrast the music in a great way). I hate to admit it but the addition of Randy on Bass/Vocals is a much-needed improvement in the band. The songs are all heavy and fast (as you would already predict). The only thing that will really surprise you is how quickly the songwriting has matured from previous albums. Erik's vocals only get better on each release. I recommend this release over the new NILE or KRISIUN. The album will keep your attention and was worth the price. Solid effort all around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feverishly heavy January 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Since so much death metal was released in 2005, it's would only be natural if one band's album sounded like another's. Hate Eternal have all of the characteristics of a trademark death metal band--a monstrous sound with hefty, spiteful riffing and an insane drummer who turns out one deft blast beat after another. (His bass drum must be in splinters by the time this album is over!) But this Floridian group aren't a complete rip off of every other band, because a) the vocals are growled, so the lyrics are somewhat discernable and b) "I, Monarch" has a somewhat more groove-oriented sound than the rest of the death metal albums that were released last year. But just because this record is groovier doesn't mean it is at all commercially accessible or melodic. On the contrary, "I, Monarch" strikes a balance which is about as heavy and fast as you can get. It is brutal and uncompromising; as heavy as a sledgehammer and as tight as a coffin lid. All of the songs on here are kind of the same, but, when they make for such an exhilarating listen, that's a small flaw. "Two Demons" opens the album with thunderous drumming and blowtorch riffs. This song leads into track two, "Behold Judas," which puts searing guitars on top of a cascading, lightning fast blast beat. "Victorious Reign" has brain scrambling drum work and jackhammer riffs, and the title track is maybe the catchiest song on here, with rhythmically pounding guitars. The last two highlights are the ultra-evil sounding "Sons of Darkness," and the scorching instrumental, "Faceless One," which closes out the album. All in all, this is a solid effort all around, and if you're a death metalhead and enjoy bands like Morbid Angel and Cryptopsy, you'll definitely want to add this to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent album (4.5 stars) September 17, 2005
By 2C
Format:Audio CD
With "I, Monarch" Hate Eternal has managed to release an impressive album that will satiate even the most rabid metal fan's appetite. The advertisement sticker placed on the cover states that "'I, Monarch' is the next crucial album in extreme metal." The album is brutal indeed, and manages to live up to the lofty expectations of the sticker, by employing the following:

First, "I, Monarch" manages to be extremely brutal and aggressive without sacrificing quality musicanship that one would expect from a band as technically proficient as Hate Eternal. "I, Monarch" showcases the band's affinity for technicality and brutal stylings, while managing to display an amazing degree of creative song writing. For example, on the title track, blast beats are used as the primary rhythm core of the song which consists of a guitar riff where one would not normally expect to hear such fast drumming. This type of contrast is not limited to just this one song, rather, much of the album is produced this way, creating a style of death metal that is uniquely their own.

Second, as mentioned earlier, "I, Monarch" does not lack brutality. The album is EXTREMELY heavy! Blast beats make up the primary drumming core of the album, and Erik Rutan's death vocals are INTENSE! Rutan is one of those rare vocalists who posesses a voice that is brutal without sounding forced (i.e., he does not appear to be 'trying too hard'), rather the sheer brutality of his vocals sound natural and somewhat effortless. After listening to this album it will be obvious to any listener who is familiar with extreme music, that Hate Eternal stands alongside Behemoth, Nile, Suffocation, and Cryptopsy as death metal's elite. In and of itself, this is an enormous accomplishment for any extreme metal band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Hellbent, I hope you get kneed in the balls! July 26, 2005
By Kilug
Format:Audio CD
"Hate enternal is horrible death metal band. The druming is horrible, the riffs suck, The screamers sound like there vomiting up there instines. Stay away from this (...)"

Way to be descriptive there, tough guy.

"The druming is horrible..." Are you kidding? Derek Roddy is one of the best metal drummers out there. His blast beats are fast and consistent (very important to have consistency), his double bass is awesome, and his cymbal work is a thing of beauty.

"...the riffs suck..." This is also wrong. This is very wrong, in fact. The guitars are all over the place, but they manage to stay on top of things and sound great. The bass is huge, and the guy has some serious talent.

"The screamers sound like there vomiting up there instines." I am not going to get into the "there vs. their" argument, and your dubious spelling errors overall. It would just be a big waste. Anyways, how man how in hell do you expect the dudes to sound? I wouldn't say "vomiting up there instines," but they sound hell of evil. In this kind of music, evil is goodness.

In short, Hellbent is a numbnut goofball who is probably spanking it to the new As I Lay Dying. For people who enjoy talented and crushingly mega-awesome metal: you should pick this up.
