Hate Cancels U.K. Tour

Poland's Hate has issued the following announcement about canceling the band's planned U.K. tour dates:

"We do regret to inform you that The Fleshgod Apocalypse/Hate tour in the UK has been cancelled. The reason for this is just bad organization of the shows and incompetence of the agency that was responsible for it in the first place.

"Stephen Moss of Nuclear Blast Touring said: 'We tried to rescue the tour after the previous agent who was booking it made many errors, but in the past weeks we had more trouble as promoters were confirming shows with us that the promoter had not confirmed with the venues. So shows were being cancelled. The only option is to cancel the tour and re-organize something for the future, which of course I am not happy about, with Nuclear Blast I have tried to rescue the tour, but we have failed.'

"We are sure that many of you will find this disappointing. All we can do is to assure you that together with our agent we will be working on another tour in the near future. We totally appreciate your support to the band and we hope to find another opportunity to come on a UK tour fairly soon. Until then Rest in HATE!"

Hate would have been touring in support of latest full-length album "Solarflesh" (reviewed here).

Hate Announces Festival Appearances

After the death of the band's bassist "Moritifier" last month, Polish act Hate has announced the group will remain active and has confirmed a string of festival appearances for the summer.

These dates will be in support of latest album "Solarflesh" (reviewed here). Currently announced shows are available below, and the band also comments:

"We would like you to know that we have decided to continue with the band and keep on doing our job as always. There is still a big hole in our hearts, but we do not want to focus on mourning over the tragedy. Instead we decide to focus on the band and keeping it alive as well as all the ideas we shared with Mortifer.

"We treat what we do as a mission and we cannot see the end of it. On some shows to come we will be accompanied by Mortifer’s wife Alexandra on bass guitar. She has been in the business for some time and been involved in a few Russian bands before. As an experienced musician, she will undoubtedly manage on the stage with us.

"On other shows we will be joined by Piotr Kolakowski (Neyra), a talented musician who had previously been on stage with us as a session musician. The festivals below have been confirmed, but there are more to come soon."

"Last night our friend’s body arrived in Warsaw. Autopsy report determines one cause of death – heart rhythm disturbances (Herzrythmusstörung). It is also known that Slawek suffered from asthma and had problems with breathing whilst asleep (obstructive sleep apnea).

"His family would like to thank everybody who helps and supports them in this tragic moment with the following words: 'We would like to thank for sympathy, love and any kind of support that we have been given by Slawek’s friends from the bands Hate, Naumachia and Saltus. We also would like to thank the band Hypocrisy for their attitude and support which is very much appreciated. Great thanks to all kind people in Poland and all over the world whose moving goodwill helps us so much in this hard moment.'

"We inform you that the last farewell to Slawek will take place on 16th April 2013 in Cmentarz Pólnocny (Wólka Weglowa) at 11.30 in hall B. Between 12.15 and 12.45 Slawek’s body will be shown in the Farewell Hall. His ashes will be buried on 17th April at Czerniakowski Cemetary in Sadyba (Warsaw)."

Hate Finishes Recording New Album

Extreme metal warriors Hate have just finished recording their new opus entitled “Solarflesh.” The follow-up to “Erebos” (2010) will be released early next year via Napalm Records. The band’s front-man ATF Sinner comments:

“We have just done mixes and Mastering on the new material; our first album for Napalm Records. I believe 'Solarflesh' is the most insane and haunting record we’ve done thus far. It’s nothing but pure darkness…

"We’re extremely satisfied with this 61 minute monster (12 songs) that we’ve put to life. Now we’re working on a documentary about creation of 'Solarflesh,' its ideological sides, the band’s history, touring etc.

"It’s going to be much more than just a studio report. We want it to be an in-depth interview revealing some unknown facts, hidden meanings etc. I’m sure people will find it interesting”

More info on the upcoming album will be announced as it is made available in the near future.

Hate Recording New Album

Extreme metal machine Hate has started the recording sessions for a next album titled "Solarflesh," which is set to be released worldwide via Napalm Records in January, 2013. The band’s leader ATF Sinner states:

“Here we are in Sound Division Studio in Warsaw working with Filip 'Heinrich' Halucha and Arek 'Malta' Malczewski (Behemoth’s soundguy) behind the console. We are aware that 'SOLARFLESH' is going to be our sickest, most hypnotic and diverse album up to date - the biggest challenge and definitely new chapter in our career.

"It’s not just like recording another album… it’s a real transition! On this album we definitely explore new territories and push the boundaries of this beautiful and sick genre to its absolute limits! The material contains 12 collages. Most of them are insanely fast (270 bpm). Others are groovy, trance-like mantras that seem to haunt you forever. They all have rich background of samples and other elements that make them sound multidimensional.

"We also have several dark ambient compositions that seem like complete avant-garde. I’ve been working on them with Michal Staczkun, the guy who did excellent job on our previous album 'Erebos.' We are also working on a few songs with Androniki Skoula, a singer from Greece, known for her involvement in the project Chaostar, as well as collaboration with Septicflesh and Rotting Christ. She’s adding some 'Hellenic' flair to the songs that makes them even more elaborate."

The album will be mixed by Wieslawski Bros (Hertz Studio) next month. Stay tuned for more info on "Solarflesh."

The band will play both I Left My Heart…and 1996's Shut Up it’s Good for Your Complexion in their entirety. (The combined running time of both albums is less than fifteen minutes.)

"They also PROMISED us to debut at LEAST two songs from Chinese Bukkakacy, which they have, indeed, been working on for awhile (although apparently it may not be called that anymore — 'The idea seemed pretty funny in 2006, not so much anymore,' the band told us by e-mail)."
