Hatebreed - For The Lions
Mixed feelings. That's what is left after listening several times to Hatebreed’s latest release, For The Lions. As the other crew members can confirm, I’m a big Hatebreed fan, but I’m not sure what I have to say about their new cover album though. After a great DVD release a couple of months ago I honestly hoped for some new Hatebreed songs, but they first released a disc with an homage to eighteen bands they have been influenced by.
With this release they honor a great variety of bands. From old school hardcore and punk to death metal. Generally speaking: the metal songs are decent and the hardcore/punk songs don’t have the same impact as the original versions have. It’s a good thing they didn’t just copy the bands, but tried to make it a Hatebreed song. The problem with it however, is that all the “Hatebreedised” tracks sound more or less the same. Furthermore Jamey Jasta’s vocals are perfect for his own songs, but too limited for songs that were written for other singers.
A cover album is a great way for a band to introduce some older bands to their young followers. Mostly such albums are released as a bonus disc or a random other release. I must confess that Hatebreed did a decent job with this product, ‘cause they at least gave it the attention it needed. On the other hand it would have been better if they would have released this one as a bonus disc, ‘cause for a full-length release this is just not worthy enough.
