HATE ETERNAL performed at The Marquee in Sydney, Australia on June 10 as part of their headlining tour Down Under. A review and over 50 photos taken at the gig can be found at HailMetal.com.
As previously reported, HATE ETERNAL's video for the title track of their upcoming third album, "I, Monarch", will premiere on Fuse TV's new daily metal show, "Metal Asylum", on Monday, June 27. Directed by Shane Drake (FALLOUT BOY, SNAPCASE, THE AGONY SCENE), the "I, Monarch" video is said to be "an amazing clip that matches the intensity of HATE ETERNAL's extreme metal note for note." Shot in California and Florida, "I, Monarch" was inspired by the work of avant-garde composer Zero Kama (samples of which can be heard on the song!). "I, Monarch" intersperses blistering HATE ETERNAL performance footage with scenes of a mysterious man's quest to build instruments out of human bones. Frontman Erik Rutan, drummer Derek Roddy, and bassist Randy Piro attack their instruments with reckless abandon and perfect precision while the mysterious man's work takes its unholy shape. HATE ETERNAL will be also taking time out of their U.S. tour to stop by the Fuse studios in New York City to film an exclusive interview for "Metal Asylum" that will air the week of July 4.
HATE ETERNAL's new album, "I, Monarch", hits U.S. stores June 28 (on day earlier internationally).
