5.0 out of 5 stars King of All Metal November 28, 2002
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
Hate Eternal is amazing, if for nothing else than their pedigree. It was started by Erik Rutan, of Morbid Angel fame, and he quickly recruited Doug Ceritto of Suffocation. They got a blaster of a drummer and a killer bassist and grinded away on "Conquering the Throne." This album features a more stripped down, tighter band. Derek Roddy is on drums, and he is simply a machine. Erik Rutan does lead vocals (his vocals have imroved 10 fold over the last album) and lead guitar. Jared Anderson plays bass and backing vocals. He has his own side-project called Internecine, which is in the same vein as this, and defintley worth checking out. The tracks do have a tendency to flow together, but the all rock, so no problems. If you like fast, technical, BRUTAL death metal then look no further. RIYL Krisiun, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc. Check out Internecine as well! Stay Metal Erik, and you will go far!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a ride..... October 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Erik Rutan, now ex-Morbid Angel guitarist/keyboardist, now makes his side project, Hate Eternal, a full time project. Of course, like many others, I was dissapointed upon hearing about Rutan's departure from MB. Yet, it seems for the most part that his leave was not in vain. The guitars on this album are quite hard to describe, a plus in my book, thanks to Rutan's style. One giant complaint this album is that the guitars become so multi-layered that the music becomes jumbled, unorganized, weird; just a plain wall of noise...But for the most part, there are incredible guitar solos, great rhythms, and some great double guitar combos (ie. Servants of the Gods). The bass, through adds a heaviness, is kinda hard to point out. The drums are incredibly fast, have some great percussion and sound great thanks to production. One of my other complaints though is the blastbeats on this album. Of course, it's death metal album, and blast beats are expected, but come on man; coupled with the sometimes white noise-ish guitars and screeched vocals (ie. The Title Track), this is on the edge of just being white noise or a really messed up grindcore band (no offense, Hate Eternal). Those are the reasons I gave the CD 4 stars and not five, because this album is an insanely awesome death metal-ripping chaos ride from start to finish other than those things. Oh, and Morbid Angel fans, this does NOT sound like MB AT ALL. Just so you know.
The Band-
Jared Anderson, bass- Browny points should be given first hand to Jared for helping MB with their recent tour with bass and vocal duties. Jared I believe is the one that does the screeching vocals, which, when well placed, really add to the death metal vibe.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... go ahead and run ... run home and cry to mama! March 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I tend to go with the hardest, fastest and angriest metal ... no compromise ... music that takes no prisoners ...
It should be emblazoned with a government health warning - every track comprises of a merciless, hate-filled attack on the senses!
This album is an extremely technical and brutal statement ... is this the beast that metal's evolving into? Am I getting too old? Where did I put my old Suffocation and Morbid Angel CDs?
I'm giving this CD 4 stars instead of 5 'cos I've been too scared to play it ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying, if not entirely memorable January 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After donating seven long years of his life to Morbid Angel and Ripping Corpse, guitarist Erik Rutan decided to leave those groups to focus, full-time, on his side project, Hate Eternal. The group's second album, "King Of All Kings," was released in 2002, and pretty much just picks up where Rutan left off with his previous two bands.

There are only two speeds represented on "King of All Kings": very fast and lightning fast -- it's all about speed, speed, and more speed. Well okay, and crushing heaviness, too. Plus, every second of every rhythm of every song here heaps on gobs of ferocious energy, blinding tempos, scalding guitar leads, grumbling riffs, driving rhythms, ridiculously fast, carnage-inducing blast beat bonanzas (seriously, is drummer even Derek Roddy human?), and deep, "who dares disturb my slumber?"-esque bellows from Erik.

If you're an experienced metalhead and you listen extremely closely to these songs, you might remember one or two of them come album's end. For example, the opening title track is a great representation of "King Of All Kings," as a whole. Between the storming, jackhammer persistence of the smashing drums and the wall-of-sound guitar noise, there is absolutely no room for subtly, here. The music only breathes when a nice, melodic, ascending guitar solo crops up a ways into the song. The rhythmically pounding, thunderous, headbanging power chords which open up the seventh track, "Chants In Declaration," and the walloping, circular, almost buzzsaw blast beats during "Powers That Be" might also engrave themselves to your mind. But 99% of this album is just one long, ultra loud and speedy blur.

There are some advantages and disadvantages to making an album like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...that's fast!!! March 17, 2003
By Dave
Format:Audio CD
Have you ever had one of "those" cds in your collection? You know the ones. You hold them in such high regard that you tell yourself you won't play it too much because you love it so much that you don't want to wear it out and get tired of it, but then you cave in and play it a thousand times a day anyway. This is that cd (for me anyway.) Listen to this when you need to get totally and completely amped up for something, because that is how you will feel after listening to this cd, and if you're at work or sitting around the house or something at the time, you won't know what to do with yourself after you're done listening. You're going to want to punch something or go mess somebody up. It's THAT aggressive. Then again, maybe I just need some help or something. Anyway, you get the point. No finesse here. Just pure, raw, pulverizing, brutal death metal from the word "go". Has some really catchy and addictive riffs too. I'll go for hours at a time with rhythms from "Born by Fire" and "Rising Legions of Black" in my head. But like I said, I might need some help. Don't take my word for it. Just listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal Death Metal
This band is like morbid angel meets suffocation. However, its darker than morbid angel and more brutal than suffocation, IMO. I cant wait to hear how they top this album.
