I want to thank everyone involved in the making of this album: Jade, Shaune, Alex, Metal Blade and especially thank all the fans for the constant support, I couldn't have done it without all of you.

3 INCHES OF BLOOD has cancelled its remaining US tour dates with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, HATE ETERNAL and DECREPIT BIRTH, as well as Canadian dates with RAMMER due to inclement weather and safety concerns.
Cam Pipes said today, "It was not an easy decision to make, but due to the rapidly declining weather in the remaining areas of the tour, we have decided that it would be unsafe to continue touring in these conditions. We have had a great time with all the bands on this tour, so it is especially disappointing to have to cancel our remaining appearances. We are committed to rescheduling the shows when the weather is safer and the roads less treacherous. Sorry to disappoint anybody, but we would rather stay safe and live to play another day."

The cover artwork for HATE ETERNAL's new album, "Fury and Flames", can be viewed at this location (artwork by Paul Romano, who has previously worked with MASTODON, ANIMOSITY and THE RED CHORD). The follow-up to 2005's "I, Monarch" is said to be the band's most diverse and emotionally fuelled record to date, due mainly in part to the passing of bassist and good friend Jared Anderson.
HATE ETERNAL founder and vocalist/guitarist Erik Rutan recently did an interview with MTV.com where he stated, "Jared was one of my best friends, and his passing away really affected me and influenced this record a lot. It's a very dark and heavy record — not just heavy as in 'heavy metal,' but heavy-hearted as well." More...
Metal Maniacs' Liz Ciavarella recently sat down with HATE ETERNAL mainman Erik Rutan to discuss the band's first album for Metal Blade Records, "Fury And Flames". Excerpts from the January 2008 cover story follow:
Metal Maniacs: How did bassist Jared Anderson's passing influence the writing and overall vibe of the record?
Erik Rutan: When Jared died I was totally devastated. I lost a bandmate and most of all, a friend. Even though Jared left a few years before he died, in my mind he was still a part of the band. I called Jared the ambassador of HATE ETERNAL. For a while I really questioned whether I would continue on with HATE ETERNAL. But one thing Jared always said when he left the band originally was that no matter what, I needed to continue with HATE ETERNAL and the dream and goals I had initially set forth. Jared always supported me in that way and I knew quitting wasn't an option. I could never let him down nor let down the fans and myself. I worked too hard to get to this point. I wrote probably 70 percent of the album after Jared passed so it really affected the musical direction of the record. I just let it all go; no restraints or limitations. That's why this is our deepest, most emotional album to date. There's so much of everything on this album. It is an angry, frenzied, chaotic, grief-ridden requiem.
Metal Maniacs: Is there significance in the title "Fury And Flames"?
Erik Rutan: I wanted a title that truly represented what this album is; something that describes death and the anguish associated with it. I wanted it to represent Jared as well. The moniker Jared used for stuff like email was "fury and flames" hence the title. It‘s in honor of Jared.
Metal Maniacs: How much pressure is there in following up a record like "I, Monarch" and "King Of All Kings" or for that matter, the pressure in not only being Erik Rutan of HATE ETERNAL but Erik Rutan the producer. Do you think there are greater expectations placed upon you by fans?
Erik Rutan: Totally. But I try to block that sort of thing out. It's hard… especially with this album being the first one on Metal Blade. It's like a new beginning. But with this album I just decided I was gonna write from the soul. I just wanted to write what came natural. Of course you still think about the label and past records and fan expectations. I definitely felt a lot of pressure but most of it was coming from myself; the perfectionist workaholic mentality of just wanting to really capture some magic and make it perfect from a production standpoint and the songwriting. It took a lot of years for me to realize this, but you can't please everyone. I can't sit around and think about it all the time. I'll lose my mind. As long as we write from the heart and everyone in the band worked to the best of their ability...
The January 2008 issue of Metal Maniacs is on sale now.
Tampa, FL's very own Hate Eternal is back with the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2005 release I, Monarch, titled Fury and Flames. Fury and Flames will be the bands most diverse and emotionally fueled record to date due mainly in part to the passing of bassist and good friend Jared Anderson.
Hate Eternal founder and vocalist/guitarist Erik Rutan recently did an interview with MTVnews.com where he stated, "Jared was one of my best friends, and his passing away really affected me and influenced this record a lot. It's a very dark and heavy record — not just heavy as in 'heavy metal,' but heavy-hearted as well." Go here to read the full article.
Fury and Flames will feature cover art by Paul Romano (Mastodon, Animosity, The Red Chord) and features the addition of new members Shaune Kelley as second guitarist and Jade Simonetto on drums. The addition of second guitarist Shaune means that this will be the first time Hate Eternal will be able to perform as a four piece live. Something fans will be able to experience on the first tour for Fury and Flames when the band heads out with label-mates The Black Dahlia Murder. Alex Webster of Cannibal Corpse fame stepped in on bass for the recording, but due to his insane schedule with Cannibal will not be able to tour with the band. More...
