Erik Rutan of Tampa, Florida's HATE ETERNAL has posted the following statement on the group's official web site:
"Long time no speak. Yes, HATE ETERNAL is alive and kicking. I have been busy producing at Mana Studios the new CANNIBAL CORPSE, TORTURE KILLER, INTERNAL SUFFERING and CELLADOR and we were all at NAMM. We will be filming a DVD this spring and we are currently closing the dates for that. Also, we will be doing an European tour headlining starting April 14th 'till May 12th. Will post more info as we get closer. Thanks for being patient with us and promise the site will be updated more often. Also, www.manarecording.com is officially launched so check it out and stay death metal."
HATE ETERNAL's last album, "I, Monarch", was released in June 2005 via Earache Records. The band part ways with Earache Records late 2005.
Former HATE ETERNAL/NILE drummer Tim Yeung came in first in the "Fastest Feet" category at the NAMM International Fastest Drummer Contest on Sunday, January 22 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Yeung, who recently formed a new extreme-metal project with ex-FEAR FACTORY/BRUJERIA guitarist Dino Cazares, beat the competition with 872 beats in one minute. Meanwhile, Reese Bridges from London, England placed first in the "Fastest Hands" category with 1,007 beats in 60 seconds. You can check out a picture of Yeung and Bridges at this past weekend's competition.
All contestants for both "Fastest Hands" and "Fastest Feet" competitions were scored on playing single strokes (no bounces, presses or buzz) for ONE MINUTE and recorded by the Drumometer. Grand prizes for this year’s contest included: Two Pearl drum sets, a year supply of ProMark drum sticks (with winner’s name), two sets of Meinl cymbals, Axis LongBoard "A" double pedal, 50 Remo drum heads, a year subscription to Drum! magazine and much more.
On Sunday, June 26th I attended the Hate Eternal show at BB King's in New York City. Along with Hate Eternal, openers were Jungle Rot, Into Eternity, Incantation, All Shall Perish, and Krisiun.
Jungle Rot opened and was exceptional from the first few songs I heard due to my prior engagement with Eric Rutan and the interview I had done with him. After Jungle Rot was All Shall Perish, I only knew that because I heard it from across the hall. I was in the bar wrapping up my interview. From what I heard as I walked in during their last few songs, they were pretty decent. Then, Into Eternity came on, I was expecting more from them seeing as my friend that came with me had me all hyped up about them, what I got was completely different.
Into Eternity’s set was more singing and melodic, which is ok, when you’re at a power metal show or some other type of show, not a death metal concert. Into Eternity’s musicianship was unique and they have good solos, but one starts to wonder after the first 3 songs if they can do anything else with the guitar besides the same solos. Into Eternity’s vocalist and drummer on the other hand were very good, the front man, Stu, put on an incredible falsetto, very energetic, and worked the crowd very well. Into Eternity’s drummer seemed to be the only one, along with the bassist, and Stu, holding the band together. Overall, they could have been better playing some of their harder material. Incantation was next, an exceptional death metal trio.
Incantation, at my first glance made me wonder where their fourth member was as the sound was overwhelming for just three people. Also, Incantation’s musicianship was incredible with the guitar solos and reminded me very much of Vader and Nile. Overall, I believe they were one of the best acts on the bill that night. Following Incantation was Krisiun. Having previously seen them at a local metal fest, I knew what to expect, or so I thought.
Krisiun came on and blew me away with their intense energy from start to finish. I was very much pleased, to say the least, that Krisiun improved their performance by showing 100% more energy than they had at the metal fest! When they came on, it was like the whole show had gotten an enormous wake up call and everyone jumped to life. Krisiun blew everyone away and left people begging for more! I would strongly recommend seeing them if they are in an area near you!
Last, but certainly not least, Hate Eternal came on! Having done the previous interview with Eric Rutan, I was expecting an amazing show and anxious to hear this “new sound” he had been talking about. Though, I did not get to hear it first, I was pleasantly surprised to say the least when they started with a lot of their older songs from their prior two albums. I was even more excited when they played my favorite Hate Eternal song, “King of All Kings”, but that wasn’t the highlight. In fact, the highlight didn’t come until 2-3 songs later when they started with some new songs of the new album, “I, Monarch”. Once I heard the new songs, I thought, “Wow, so THAT’S what the ranting and raving’s been about!” Hate Eternal have created what seems to be a brand new speed of metal, and new extreme in which to play metal. I do not believe ANY band could top their speed and quality! ESPECIALLY their live show, the end was my favorite because as soon as they started to play the last song, there was a MASS bum rush to the stage and everyone who wanted to, came up on stage and got to be up there with Hate Eternal for their last song! I give this band and this show a 10 for all bands being really cool, regardless of what critics might say or think and Hate Eternal for being EXTREMELY nice to their fans and yelling at guards that were taking kids off the stage!
Florida-based death metallers Hate Eternal have issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of their upcoming European tour:
"Due to urgent family matters Hate Eternal will not be able to perform on their upcoming European tour in Sept/Oct 2005. First we want to apologize to Johan from Metalysee Agency and to all the bands on the tour as well as all the disappointed fans that were excited to see us.we will reschedule the tour in Europe next year in spring 2006. Thank you for your understanding."
Hate Eternal are supporting their latest album, "I, Monarch", out now through Earache.
"I, Monarch," Hate Eternal's new video, from the upcoming album of the same name, has been posted online.
Hate Eternal's "I, Monarch" will be released in Europe on June 27 and in North America on June 28.
Canadian progressive death metal band Into Eternity are preparing to return to the road after their spring North American tour with Amorphis. Lead guitarist / second vocalist Tim Roth addressed the bands recent illnesses, and recent activities: "It’s been a few weeks since we wrapped up our headlining Canadian dates, and everyone is back to good health now. Stu and Adam are back in their respective cities and it’s been a good break before we start our next tour and play Mexico’s Monterrey Metal Fest Vol. II on May 28th."
"We’re really excited to be a part of the Hate Eternal tour, and are planning to stick to our heavier material. Between Krisiun and Hate Eternal, the level of musicianship will be overwhelming, and it’s going to be killer to watch those bands every night. During the break, Rob and I have been working on new songs at his home studio. The material has been flowing and there will be some killer songs coming. They contain our trademark sounds, no worries. On May 20th, the rest of the guys return to Regina for rehearsals. We want to be as tight as we can for the upcoming tours. Hopefully we will see everyone on the road throughout Canada and the USA! Keep it metal!"
Still receiving rave reviews for their album "Buried In Oblivion", Into Eternity will be touring North America throughout the summer and fall, following up the Hate Eternal / Krisiun tour with a month-long tour supporting Finland’s Stratovarius.

Canadian progressive death metal band INTO ETERNITY resume their Canadian tour today in Winnipeg. Although members of the band are still ailing from prolonged bouts with strep throat and pneumonia, they have vowed to bring their intense live show to dedicated audiences.
INTO ETERNITY was forced to cancel several of their late March appearances supporting Amorphis after guitarist Rob Doherty sought emergency medical treatment in Atlanta. Diagnosed with pneumonia and advised to enter the hospital, the band immediately returned to Canada where Doherty, vocalist Stu Block, and guitarist/vocalist Tim Roth (who played shows with fevers topping 104° F) were all treated for pneumonia. You can read Rob’s full account here.

Brazilian purveyors of death Krisiun are teaming up with Florida's Hate Eternal and Into Eternity, Incantation, and All Shall Perish to ravage the U.S. this summer.
Drummer Max Kolesne offered his horns up to everyone:
It's great to be coming back to the U.S., especially touring with our brothers in Hate Eternal and Incantation. This tour is going to devastate! Posers will die and their women will cry when the death metal demons rise.
Krisiun will be supporting their new release "Bloodshed," which contains eight new tracks highlighting the kings of hyperspeed's diversity and musical development. The album also includes four rudimentary corpse-grinding tracks from their rare, cult, underground first release, the Unmerciful Order EP (1993).

The new Hate Eternal album is currently being mixed and should be completed on January 4th. Entitled "I, Monarch," should hit stores in April 2005 via Earache Records. Here's a statement from guitarist Erik Rutan regarding the effort:
"Just wanted to let all the fans know our third Hate Eternal record 'I, Monarch' is being mixed as we speak and shall be finished on January 4th, 2005 for a spring 2005 release. I just want to say that never have I been so prepared for an album and never have I spent so much time crafting an album. Therefore I feel like we really captured something special. It sounds amazing. At my studio I bought the analog 2 inch machine from Morrisound that we recorded the whole album to, which was very special. Jim Morris sold it to me. In the past I recorded both 'Domination' and part of the 'Gateways...' album with it, and it's been used on great albums by numerous other bands like Deicide, Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse and Death, so it is a very classic machine and I am very honored to have it be a part of my studio now. The tones on this album are amazing, such depth and clarity yet so pummeling.The material is very diverse I feel without compromising what Hate Eternal represents, which is an extreme Metal outfit. I got some killer solos on here and the drumming on the record is groundbreaking I feel, so I am very psyched to get this thing out and tour our asses off next year. I think everyone will be very pleased. We look forward to getting back on the road and supporting 'I, Monarch' with a few surprises for sure . Hope all is Well for all our fans out there and be prepared!"
Hate Eternal, currently finishing their 3rd album, the follow up to "King of All Kings," will be opening for Hatebreed on October 28th, 2004 at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg, Florida. Hatebreed is playing a special show in the Tampa area to make up for the missed Ozzfest show due to the hurricanes here over the last month.
As far as the new album's progress, Erik has this to say: "Everything is almost tracked and we'll begin mixing in November for a Spring 2005 release. The album has been the smoothest of my career and is pummeling! I believe it captures all the elements of the first 2 albums, but is also so much more diverse in every aspect. It really has captured so much of what we all are in this band individually and collectively. We are so very excited and look forward to getting on the road next year in support for our new album. See you soon!"
