Editorial Reviews

Almost three years after the brutal extreme metal masterpiece, I, Monarch, Hate Eternal came back to the death metal scene with a new record and a new home on Metal Blade Records. Fury and Flames, the band s fourth studio album, marks the start of a new chapter in Hate Eternal s already illustrious career. Fury and Flames was hailed as a diverse, heavy, chaotic, and emotionally fueled record and saw the band on the road with the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Hatebreed, The Black Dahlia Murder, Decrepit Birth, Soilent Green, Skeletonwitch, Cephalic Carnage, and Toxic Holocaust just to name a few, as well as playing such great European festivals such as Party San, Summer Breeze and Brutal Assault. For the writing and recording of Phoenix Amongst the Ashes, HATE ETERNAL sought out a new bassist and recruited J.J. Hrubovcak who joined the devastating combo of Erik Rutan on guitar and Jade Simonetto on drums. In terms of the writing on Phoenix Amongst the Ashes, Rutan stated "it was my goal to expand upon what the band has done in the past, and add new dynamics and twists to the traditional, dissonant HATE ETERNAL style, yet keep it in the same vein. It took the three of us really pushing ourselves, and digging deep into the essence of who we are as musicians and writers and players to create something very unique and special. We cannot wait for everyone to hear what we have in store." HATE ETERNAL recorded their fifth studio album at frontman Erik Rutan's own Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL with mastering handled by Alan Douches of West West Side. Artwork was once again handled by Paul Romano (Mastodon, Chiodos, The Acacia Strain, Godflesh, Earth Crisis) who has also created cover art for HATE ETERNAL s I, Monarch, The Perilous Fight (DVD), and Fury & Flames. HATE ETERNAL will be hitting the road in support of Phoenix Amongst the Ashes starting things off in Europe in late April and carrying through to the end of May. Joining HATE ETERNAL will be Obscura, Beneath the Massacre, and Defiled. Shortly after HATE ETERNAL returns to the states, the band will hit the road on a headline run out June through July with Origin, Vital Remains, and Abysmal Dawn as support.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Return of Hate Eternal May 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Hate Eternal is real death metal, it doesn't get any better than this. This album is amazing, and was worth the few years wait. Hopefully they stay around. I really like the sound on this album. I've been a fan of theirs since their last album came out. I recommend this album, if you like real death metal. Erik's vocals are amazing. This is a must have death metal album of 2011. This album is everything you could want. This album is really heavy, and brutal, and evil, three things that I like in an album. I've been writing Hate Eternal's name down on paper for months, because I had to remember when this album was being released, I didn't want to miss out on an album this great. This is one of my favorite albums of 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! May 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let's face it. With Death Metal there's no "it's okay in-between-type" of fans. You either like it, or you don't. Probably much the same could be said about the rest of the community of metal fans as well, though Death Metal(and to a degree black metal) seems to draw a certain reaction from people when you tell them that it's your preferred musical genre. With that being said, there are few bands that DEFINE what Death Metal is. For me, Hate Eternal on each album progressively defines just how far out you can take a death metal album without going completely over the edge.

Production on Phoenix Amongst The Ashes is certainly better than their previous release Fury and Flames. It has more to do with I, Monarch's production value. The songs are probably the most controlled-chaos sounding tunes that Erik Rutan and company have yet to unleash. With precision and brutality they push the limits in terms of what is/is not musical. To me the album is worth it alone for the songs Hatesworn, and Haunting Abound. Not a terribly long playing album, but I mean really, do you wanna get blown up for 3 hours or keep it short and sweet? There are other bands out there for things of that nature.

With that being said the new Hate Eternal ranks up there with I, Monarch, Conquering the Throne, and King of All Kings....while I don't hate Fury and Flames, I just wished the production was slightly clearer. If you dig Hate Eternal, then buy the album. Once again they prove that they are one of the best in death metal. Hate Eternal is right up there with Nile, Cannibal Corpse, Aeon and the rest of the crop of tight heavy ballistic bands that are out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars death metal from a founding master June 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Hate Eternal is the band behind Eric Rutan, who keeps quite busy with production work and the occasional work with Morbid Angel, although he hasn't worked with them recently. The comparisons are inevitable because both Rutan and MA's Trey Azagthoth were principle architects of the death metal sound. Rutan is indeed a peer, and shows that he could front that mighty band too if he wanted to. While he may not possess the lead wizardry of Azagthoth, he nonetheless is a fine player in his own right, and his lead style is more melodic. As far as the crushing songs go, you can't help but hear a young version of Morbid Angel - I hear "Domination", which is only logical since Rutan played on that classic album.
"Phoenix Among The Ashes" nevertheless is a great album. The title track has some fine melody, albeit buried deep among the blast beat drums, and the other tracks are all heavily layered complex pieces, the kind of album that takes a while to grasp but lasts that much longer. There is even a tad bit of black metal nuances here - Behemoth fans would be advised to check Hate Eternal out. This is state of the art death metal and will finish high on year end lists. For those who are furious with the direction Morbid Angel has gone with their new album, this will sooth them. But don't count Morbid Angel out, either. That album, for all its industrial experimentation, grows on you and I think it's great, too. Here's a toast to Rutan and Azagthoth, death metal pioneers and musicians extraordinaire.

5.0 out of 5 stars great eternal May 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
with this new Hate Eternal, the new Nader Sadek album , and the new Autopsy album...who needs Morbid Angel and their crappy electronica/ extreme-music ?. Erik Rutan knows what good death metal is all about. Hate Eternal never fails to deliver. Fury and Flames had a muddy production..but this album is mixed much better. If you're a true fan of good death should already own this.

5.0 out of 5 stars (4.5 stars) Bah-roo-ta-hul! November 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Hate Eternal's fifth album, 2011's "Phoenix Amongst The Ashes," sounds like Hate Eternal -- only more so. A quick tagline for the record could be: H.E. on `roids. Easily the heaviest, fastest, and most sonically violent effort of the Floridian extreme metal trio's career thus far, "Phoenix" is a mercilessly brutal death metal record that races by at grind-worthy speeds. And it positively explodes with pummeling drum blasts, monstrous vocals, bludgeoning rhythms, and highly technical guitar work -- including excellent riffage, flesh-filleting leads, and positively air-guitar-able solos. And while it may have a couple of sections that are a bit too shred-happy for their own good, the guitar work of frontman Erik Rutan (ex-Morbid Angel, ex-Ripping Corpse) is nonetheless extremely impressive and instinctively memorable throughout.

The album is bookended by two mid-tempo, even mildly doomy pieces ("Rebirth" and "The Fire Of Resurrection"), which are both terrifically ominous tracks with creeping tempos, rhythmically marching beats, and big, fat, chugging guitars. (The former also features some exceptionally dexterous and inventive drum fills; and the latter makes occasional use of memorable twin-guitar harmonies.) In between these two songs are eight cuts of extremely brutal, completely blown-out, Earth-scorching extreme metal. "The Eternal Ruler," which rips viciously from start to finish, is a top-notch piece of death metal. It is full of insane, crushing, and ridiculously fast drumming -- including gobs of lightning-fast, grindcore-worthy blast beats and feverish double bass pummel that race by underneath blankets of technical and blistering death metal riffs. And the track wraps up with the guitarists trading-off solos (one ripping and melodic, the other shredding and dive-bombing).
