HATE: Blackened Death Metal Practitioners To Host Gimme Metal Guest DJ Special Monday, November 8th; Rugia Full-Length Out Now On Metal Blade Records

Blackened death metal practitioners HATE will host a Gimme Metal guest DJ special this Monday, November 8th at 3:00pm ET / 12:00pm PT. Don’t miss it! Visit: and join the band in the live chat!
No one combines death and black metal quite like Poland’s HATE. With unflinching viciousness and a sense of atmosphere unique to the band, on Rugia, their twelfth full-length released last month via Metal Blade Records, they push the boundaries of their craft even further.

Rugia is currently available on CD, LP, and digital formats. Preview and purchase the record at THIS LOCATION.

Rugia was tracked at Hertz Recording Studio in Poland and recorded, mixed, and mastered by the Wiesłaski Brothers (Behemoth, Decapitated). Everything was laid down over about two to three weeks, with longtime collaborator Michał Staczkun providing the ambient elements of the band’s sound. HATE is also celebrating thirty years of activity with Rugia. Vocalist/guitarist ATF Sinner affirms he is as driven as ever. “The fire is still burning! I’m proud that I have built a band with such strong energy, that’s lasted for a long time in spite of numerous line-up changes and obstacles in our way. We are still here, and we create with ever-growing consciousness and dedication. The energy speaks through us. Honestly, I think of the band as something much bigger and more profound than the individual people involved in it over any given period of time. I believe we create a channel for energies that surpass us.”
