Fueled By Hate

Rated 2.89/5 (57.78%) (9 Votes)

For some odd reason I always thought this was a grindcore band so I never bothered checking them out. Hailing from the good ol' USA (Chicago to be precise) this is the bands fourth full-length release in the nine years they have been together.

The band plays a groove oriented style of death metal which also has some thrash influences mainly due to the breakdown sections. This certainly is not the most original thing I have heard but it is actually pretty well done. The main problem I had with this album is simply its repetitive nature. Every song on the album follows the same recipe….fast start, breakdown section, more speed, another breakdown section just like the last one, end of song. Now I will admit there are some pretty cool riffs and breakdown sections but listening through the album it gets hard to tell when the CD player has switched to the next track without looking. This is one of those albums that you don't want to try and let grow on you because the more you hear it the more you notice the repetitive nature. I actually liked this album a lot more the first couple of times I listened to it but after that it got old pretty quick. At least with the album length being just under 30 minutes in length it will be over before you know it.

For fans of the band this might be something to check out (it will be available June 29th) but for the majority you really wont be missing much by passing on this one. If you are at least slightly interested at least listen to a sample or two (at that rate you will pretty much hear every song on the album) before laying down the cash.
