Hate Squad - Degüello Wartunes
Hate Squad is a German hatecore band. The band celebrates its fifteenth birthday this year with a new album, their sixth release so far. For those who have no idea what hatecore is, think death/thrash metal mixed with hardcore. Now that’s a genre most of you probably know by now, but this band right here has made the genre to what it is right now – according to their bio. Be ready for some heaviness!

To be quite honest with you I don’t like this band that much. I can’t really find anything original and although they claim to be the founders of the hatecore genre I’m having a bit of a hard time finding out how the hell they became so popular in their early years. Sure, they make some nice noise on this disc, but even I in my short life have heard this like a hundred times before. Really, Degüello Wartunes doesn’t bring anything new to the table !

As for the music you should expect mainly hardcore vocals combined with some old thrash influences in the guitar work. But yet again I can’t tell you that much more about it since that’s pretty much it.

But before you start to think of Hate Squad as a really sucky band, I gotta tell you it’s not all that bad on this album. Like I said earlier, these guys do know how to make some noise, in a positive way of course! It’s just that if you’re into more refreshing things, this band certainly isn’t your thing! Also the production seems to lean towards the raw approach. So for those who are still longing for the old days in which the music wasn’t all that polished yet, grab yourself a beer and just give it a try!
