Editorial Reviews

Since forming in 1994, GRAMMY AWARD-NOMINATED hardcore and metal stalwarts Hatebreed have constantly crushed with every subsequent album. Their six full-length effort and first for Razor & Tie, THE DIVINITY OF PURPOSE, proudly upholds that tradition cast in almost two decades of blood, tears, and flames. It's everything fans have come to expect from the Connecticut-based quintet.
THE DIVINITY OF PURPOSE began to take shape in 2010 when the band welcomed back original guitarist Wayne Lozinak for 2009's covers set, FOR THE LIONS and their self-titled fifth effort the same year. During a two-year touring cycle, they expanded their global stamp through performing crowds in Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and South America. In addition, they destroyed the U.S. and Europe alongside ALL THAT REMAINS, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and LAMB OF GOD as well as on the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL-- twice.
"We were going for a bigger sound," affirms front man, Jamey Jasta. We also tried to do things outside of our comfort zone musically on HATEBREED. This time around, we played to our strengths as a band and gelled incredibly. The riffs had to be really heavy, memorable, and catchy. The rhythms needed to be pounding. I went back into drill sergeant mode vocally. I focused on saying what I had to say and got in and out. The music makes its point and leaves its mark. It's a tight snapshot of the last two years."

After releasing two albums in 2009, their self-titled album and For The Lions, Hatebreed is back with their sixth studio album The Divinity of Purpose. From start to finish Divinity is heavy, it's in your face, and it's just a joy to listen to. If you've ever heard a Hatebreed album in the past then you can expect to hear more of the same on Divinity. However, you do see the band dip their toes in a few new elements which was nice.

For example track six, "Indivisible", has a some nice skate-punk riffs thrown in the mix (think Pennywise). Then track eleven, "Boundless (Time To Murder It)", is home to some of the first breakdowns we've heard from Hatebreed. I might be mistaken, but this is the first instance where I've heard breakdowns like this on a Hatebreed album. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Either way, both of these things flow smoothly with the rest of the album and don't come off as forced.

What I enjoyed more than these technical advances, however, was Jamey Jasta's vocal experimentation. On track seven, "Dead Man Breathing", Jasta's delivery on certain parts of the chorus is very reminiscent of Wayne Static's work with Static-X. Certain areas of track eight, the title-track, sound like they were influenced by Milo Aukerman of Descendents. And the chorus on track nine, "Nothing Scars Me", sounds very similar to Robb Flynn's vocal work for Machine Head.

Lyrically Divinity is your average Hatebreed. There's a lot of self-empowerment. A lot of standing up for what you think is right. Being an individual, standing out from the crowd, etc. The beautiful thing about it is that no one can do this like Hatebreed. Even though they've been basically making the same music for over 15 years, it still sounds good. Why fix what isn't broken, right?

This album is all intensity! It seems like so many bands are so concerned with making their albums attractive to more than just their usual fan base. While thats not always a bad thing,these bands end up alienating many fans by becoming something else entirely. It's not enough that the fan base is mostly guys so bands like Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, etc. lighten up at least half their album, if not all of it, to appeal to the girlfriends of the guy fans. Hatebreed doesn't give a damn about all of that and continues to deliver their trademark sound of relentless and unapologetic hardcore brutality. This is refreshing amongst so many sissy bands. I liken their continuity and consistency to that of Lamb Of God. This is a killer album! Anyone rating this album at anything less than 5 stars is nothing but a metalcore fanboy that wants the growling and yelling interrupted with unnecessary clean vocal harmonies like so many other bands have opted to do. Any true Hatebreed fan will love this album. Don't be cheap and pirate the album! BUY IT! You won't be disappointed.

Hatebreed's 2013 album The Divinity Of Purpose is their sixth full-length studio album of original material. It follows up their 2009 Self Titled album which expanded the band's sound a little and it is the first Hatebreed album to come out after Jasta's self-titled 2011 solo album, which took the core Hatebreed sound and made it a lot more commercial and melodic sounding.

The Divinity Of Purpose at first appearances seems like something of a reaction against both of those records. If you look at the beginning and end of the record it is arguably their fasted, heaviest and most direct album to date. There is a lot less deviation from the established Hatebreed sound, and songs are all pretty brief and straight-forward. There are still chanting backing vocals, crunchy guitars, grooves and breakdowns of course, it is a Hatebreed album after all, but the band seem to be in the mood for the fast, loud and angry side of music this time around. It wouldn't be unreasonable to say that they've taken more of a Slayer influence this time around.

With that being said; the record isn't devoid of absolutely all variety whatsoever, and from about the halfway point the band start changing things up a little. `Dead Man Breathing' for example, sounds like something from their Self Titled album, and is one of the slowest moments here. The title-track is a little reminiscent of `I Will Be Heard' after a fashion and `Indivisible' has a punky feel to it.

Highlights include `The Language' which has some fun lead guitar briefly, as well as the aforementioned `Indivisible' and the very catchy `Nothing Scars Me Anymore' which is sure to become a live favourite.

The album was produced by Zeuss again, and as such sounds fantastic.

I started listening to Hatebreed after seeing a video for "This Is Now." Rise of Brutality totally blew me away. It captured the sentiment of being pissed off about something, and not wanting to say "screw it". Throwdown is the only band that I think comes close to matching their combination of intensity and a sense of voice. After I got Rise of Brutality, I went back and purchased Perseverance, which I think as a song and an album, perfectly captures them as a band with something to say about the world.

With The Divinity of Purpose, they seem to have come full circle. Jasta started out with a message of "Strength through solitude" in Perseverance, and now shouts about the value of not always going it alone with Divinity.

Musically and lyrically, Hatebreed at their best.
