HATE ETERNAL - Bassist Releasing Death Metal Christmas Album2013-11-14
Just in time for the holiday season, Hate Eternal bassist J.J. Hrubovcak will bring forth Death Metal Christmas - Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics, a twisted rendition of some of the season's darkest hymns. It was composed and produced by J.J. with vocals and artwork by brother and Monstrosity/Vile/Azure Emote vocalist Mike Hrubovcak. You can check out the artwork below and also the first advance track "Unrest For Melancholy Men (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen)". Well, why not?
Death Metal Christmas - Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics was engineered by Hate Eternal mastermind Erik Rutan and J.J., mixed and mastered by Brian Elliott all at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida. This release will be available on November 29th, 2013.
The lyrics have been altered to portray a possible future outcome to mankind's current path and focus on Azrael, the angel of death in some Islam, Sikhism and Hebrew lore. The story follows a child (Azrael) born to a wealthy family heavily involved in politics throughout the generations.
J.J. Hrubovcak says about the song: "At this stage in the story, the earth is in great turmoil, thus the melancholy men who can get no rest from their suffering. Cultures from around the world are looking for answers. The song lyrics basically warn the human race that this demon is now born and will seduce every last mind on this planet into altering their morals and convictions to suit his purpose unless man refocuses. He is not at all direct but very insidious."
