About the Album: Deluxe edition includes two bonus tracks and a 65 minute live DVD featuring 13 European concert festival performances! Front-man Jamey Jasta comments, "This is our fifth studio album and it's a monster! We've survived some pretty rough times and the music shows it. There was no reason to change the recipe that our fans know and love but we added a few brutal new ingredients and we're more than amped on the results. Violence is a given!" Jasta elaborates, "I feel this new album is a true crossover record in the sense that our metal and hardcore roots are evenly represented throughout it. There's still the fast East Coast tuned down Hardcore that people know and love, yet there are metal influences that shine through on almost every song. The speed is there, which we even kicked up a few notches on some of the songs, but the groove and slower tempos are represented. On HATEBREED, there is a violent mix of straightforward anthem headbangers, fast thrashers and brutal breakdown after breakdown. There's something for everyone."
