  • This doesn’t mean its bad, its simply mainstream. I mean, they dont bother tagging those on unless it is a widely known band. Hatebreed are not fanpleasers, great live, and have strangely undertstandable vox on this album. They’ve got the emotion many bands with the same formula lack, and thats what set them apart from others. They’ve got the feeling of hxc and the temps of mxc. It’s not so much a blend of the two, but their own interpretation of both. This is beyond mediocre, but its not going to blow you away. They have more talent but this is the sound they like and their slight maturing of their sound is what keeps them going strong. This is what people see as a defining album, but its nothing of the sort, it simply excels at what its set out for. Breakdowns designed for the mosh it seems, if you get into it.

  • “Satisfaction…” is one of the finest Hardcore albums ever produced, and it IS Hardcore. Not metal, not metal-core…you can get away with calling it Thrash if you’re REALLY high, but when you get right down to the nitty gritty, its Hardcore, full of piss and vinegar. Bands like this and Blood for Blood, Strife, etc, get a bad rap for writing too mufch about what they hate. I guess using music as an outlet for what concerns you, and what things in life bring you and those you love down should only be left to pre-Vietnam era Blues and late 80s-early 90s era Rap then, because alot of those artists do the same thing, just in a different medium. None are all that bright and smiley, and often they tend to consit of alot of negative views, but sometimes the world just isn’t that bright. Hatebreed just so happens to deliver this style of Hate Edge Hardcore faster, louder, and in many ways better than most of their peers. This is one of the greatest Hardcore albums I’ve ever heard.

  • [...]. Hatebreed isn’t death metal. They’re straight in your face hardcore mixed with the brutality of metal, a winning combination. Come on, who could not love the brutality Jamey Jasta and gang deliver straight towards your face? I’m sure you’ve never heard of Hatebreed in 1997, unless you’re a hardcore fan. I was only 9 years old at that time, so I have an excuse. “Before Dishonor” brings the guitar work of Sepultura mixed in with the hardcore tinges of Warzone and Earth Crisis, without the straight edge stuff (I think drugs are wicked. They took the lives of such great people, like Chris Farley, Brad Nowell and Layne Staley). “Before Dishonor” has Jamey’s vocals a tad bit deeper than on his new stuff, but it’s still great. Slightly better. (I still love Hatebreed.) “Last Breath” is another classic, even though it’s only a minute and a half long. It still delivers right to your ears. It’s just that great. The whole freakin’ CD is awesome. What are you waiting for? Get off you ass and buy it!

  • Hatebreed’s first semi-major label full length release, “Satisfaction is the Death of Desire” is one of the most fulfilling hardcore albums in recent memory. The songs are simple and the lyrics are straightforward; no one could consider Hatebreed to musically or lyrically profound. But the content of the album showcases a strong sense of rhythmic power and dead-on aggressive styling. There can be little doubt as to the emotions conveyed through the lyrics or the music: discontent has bred in this group some of the best heavy music in the world today. Songs such as “Puritan,” “Conceived Through an Act of Violence,” and “Before Dishonor” belay a theme of strength through adversity. But while the heavily distorted, de-tuned guitars, the heavy double-bass drumming, and the brutal vocals are inspired seemingly by feelings of frustration and rage, the emotion most likely to be evoked by this album is one accompanied by a smile.

  • After listening to Hatebreed I thought that they were just another metal band manufacturing riffs but after listening to this and the other albums they lyrically talented i even got the chance to see them live and their stage presence blew me away everyone in the room went crazy and such a great atmosphere. As for this album its definatly my favourite.

    From literally no promotion they sold over 200,000 copies of their album so they gotta be doing something right. This band is anything but mainstream.
