Fresno-Livermore metallers HateFX, featuring Glen Alvelais (ex-Testament, Forbidden) and G (ex-Dogma Chile) has released a video teaser showcasing the brand new track titled "Play it by Fear." The track is to be featured on the band's coming release, titled "Under Destruction," which is slated for digital release later this fall.
The cover artwork was created by by Chilean/Italian digital artist/photographer Claudio Bergamin, who has previously worked with Halford, Arjen Lucassen, Criminal, and more.
"Under Destruction" was recorded at Green Bird studios in Fresno, California with remote supervision of Chilean producer Javier Bassino (Estudios Bassino). Javier engineered, mixed, and mastered the CD, which marks Alvelais' recording debut with the band.
A music video for the track "Play It By Fear" is being produced by Chilean videographer Juan Pablo Arriagada. The concept for the video came from actual events that tie in with the lyric content of the song dealing with extortion, manipulation, and blackmail and there is a parallel story that describes the key events of the situation.

Fresno/Livermore metallers HateFX, featuring guitarist Glen Alvelais (ex-Forbidden, Testament), has revealed that brand new release, "Under Destruction" is set for a March 23rd North American release via xXx Music. "Under Destruction" will be available in two configurations: the Ultimate Limited Edition silver bullet shaped USB drive (mp3-wav format, lyrics and extras) and a standalone CD.
Frontman G comments: "We wanted to innovate as far as the format of our music release and got these special usb drives made with our logo engraved with open code so you get the album in 2 hi-fi formats as well as lyrics, artwork, pictures, and other extras, plus you can use the drive to carry other information as well since there’s additional free space on the USB drive. You can play the music right in your car if you have a USB input. Also we thought it was a portable/convenient format that allows to be carried easily, let’s say you get this on a show and it fits right in your pocket and you get bonus stuff.”
“Under Destruction” will include special guest appearances by Anton Reisenegger (Lockup/Criminal), Patrick Contreras (Master Violinist), Amandolyn Rostikus (Spirit Descending), on keys and Antonio Godoy (Music Machine) on some sequences. More...
Fresno metallers HateFX, featuring lead guitarist Glen Alvelais (ex forbidden/Testament), have confirmed Lockup/Criminal/Pentagram singer Anton Reisenegger will lay down guest vocals on the title track for upcoming new album "Under Destruction."
Anton commented: "I was really happy to find out my good friend Gabriel had put together a new band in the US, When I heard Glen Alvelais had joined I was like 'fuck! The first Forbidden album is of my all-time favourite thrash albums, so I was really happy for Gabriel. And when he asked me to contribute some backing vocals I said 'where do I sign?' HateFX's music will really appeal to fans of metal with groove, chops and balls!"
This song, which will open the new HateFX release, serves as a strong display of the new vibe the band has acquired. Frontman "G" comments: "I thought of my chilean metal colleague Anton because we had worked before on Dogma's Superfix (mi former band) and wanted to get as heavy of a chorus part for the title track 'Destruction' and he captured exactly what we had in mind for this part. Each song has a different feel yet they come together as cohesive pieces to the overall sonic concept of 'Destruction.'"
The new album is being helmed by Chilean producer Javier Bassino for a late March release by xXx Music. Immediately after the release of "Under Destruction," the band will embark on a number of tour dates starting with the band's home turf, California. Further details will be announced shortly. More...
