Hate Eternal recorded the studio album at front man Erik Rutan's own Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL with mastering handled by Alan Douches.
Commented Rutan: "Phoenix Amongst the Ashes is an album that we as a band worked so very hard on to achieve a record of mammoth dynamic proportions. Jade, J.J and I gave everything we had to make a death metal record that would incorporate a balance of speed, heaviness, melody, and pure power. Every song we labored over to have stand out with originality, individuality and unique creativity. We feel we accomplished everything we set out to do with this album and are very proud of the results; we hope you all will agree…"
The first single off of "Phoenix Amongst the Ashes," titled "Haunting Abound," can now be heard on the band's landing page at this location.
Erik Rutan comments on the first single: "Haunting Abound is a song that we feel carries the intensity and the vibe of traditional Hate Eternal, yet explores new territory with a certain heaviness that has never been presented before in a Hate Eternal song. Infusing more dynamics and expanding our sound whilst retaining the integrity and ferocity that fans expect from us. This is only a small taste of things to come upon listening to Phoenix Amongst The Ashes…"

The band recently entered frontman Erik Rutan's own Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL to begin recording the new studio album. J.J. Hrubovcak has been added as the band's bassist.
Commented Rutan: "The band has been locked up in Mana Recording Studios doing pre-production for the past two months, finishing up songs that we have been writing over the last year in between tours and albums that I've produced, and we feel we have come up with one of Hate Eternal's heaviest, most twisted, evil, melodic, and insane albums yet.
"It was my goal to expand upon what the band has done in the past, and add new dynamics and twists to the traditional, dissonant Hate Eternal style, yet keep it in the same vein. It took the three of us really pushing ourselves, and digging deep into the essence of who we are as musicians and writers and players to create something very unique and special. We cannot wait for everyone to hear what we have in store."

Florida natives, Hate Eternal has posted the following message online:
"Hate Eternal have been forced to drop off the ongoing JOB FOR A COWBOY North American tour due an infection in Erik Rutan's hand and complications in his kidney. Erik was admitted to an Iowa City hospital on the early morning of November 23rd and has remained under doctor's supervision since.

Erik will not be able to continue the tour, but he is expected to make a full recovery. He is expected to be released sometime next week and then will seek further treatment at home in Florida.
