Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta Working On Solo Project

HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta is currently working on material for his forthcoming solo project.

"I am in such a great space creatively these days," he said. "I have been writing profusely on my solo material. I don't have a release date in mind for this project, but my studio work is certainly sharpening my vocal and writing skills for the next HATEBREED studio album which is going to be completely next level!"

Jamey Jasta will play a solo show at this year's South By Southwest music and media conference in Austin, Texas. He will perform on Saturday, March 15 at Red 7.

Jamey previously stated that HATEBREED's next studio release will be a "covers" albums, which will include the band's versions of songs from such varied acts as CRO-MAGS, CROWBAR, D.R.I. and METALLICA.

Jamey Jasta recently spoke to Revolver magazine about the group's split with Roadrunner Records, the company that released HATEBREED's latest CD, 2006's "Supremacy". "They had a bunch of people on their label, and we felt we didn't get the publicity push that we deserved for our last record," he said. "We realized we need to go to a place where we can be the big fish in the small pond. But ultimately there're no hard feelings; the split was good on both sides."

Asked if HATEBREED is actively looking for a label, Jasta replied, "Well, first we're gonna do a separate deal for our DVD. There's always been so much red tape with DVDs, and we want to make sure we do it right. We're actually recording the majority of the footage over Christmas break during my label's annual Stillborn Fest. I'm hoping for a May or June 2008 DVD release."

Please. "DESTROY EVERYTHING! DESTROY EVERYTHING! DESTROY EVERYTHING!" Hands down the funniest song in Metal, simply for it's utter stupidity. He did that on purpose right? Showing the hilarious side of his writing skills? Right?

Not a real expert at all on the hardcore scene, but from what i DO know, Hatebreed is hardcore the same way that Greenday is punk. More like a watered down unworthy version of what it says it is.

^Idiot!, Sworn Enemy, Knuckledust, Hatebreed, First Blood aren't real hardcore dude, that sh** is some form of metalcore. But you are obviously a product of that environment, fat kids in baggy jeans and ball caps swinging thier arms and legs around like a f***in' caveman on speed. I have a hard time calling that sh** hardcore, people who think thats whats "real" or "true" hardcore must have a broken brain, or a broken face apparently.

To post 30 - AP - please stop generalizing that everyone who does not know what "hardcore" - is a hot top kid or ape who swings his arms around or throws karate kicks like an idiot. That is simply untrue. It makes you look elitist, arrogant, and, or stupid. Just because people may have trouble distinguishing between a classic hardcore band, and a new metalcore band - does not make them stupid. Check yourself before you start throwing insults.

Hatebreed... ughh... worse 30 bucks I ever wasted. Seriously - pick up a guitar for 3 years, learn a few Slayer tracks, ruin them with drop tuning and you have some Hatebreed "hardcore." Don't forget the cliched uplifting shouts.

^thats why he wrote "drop tuning"

personally i think hatebreed are ok. you might find one solo for every 3 album, but so what. there's a lot worse sh** out there. as far as the uplifting shouts, not every band has to right about everything being terrible, and there are far too many bands in metal/numetal/hardcore writing about being picked on or different, some have made an entire career with that sh**.

back to the subject, don't care for a solo project...it will sound like hatebreed...icepick was a bad idea too.

I meant to type slow them down, but it's implied. My point wasn't that they were like Slayer, simply they sound like any archetypal dissonant metal band (Slayer), slowed and drop-tuned (read: simplified).

Slayer is so overrated - it is pitiful. I like maybe one or two songs...where is the variety. Every f***in' track and riff sound almost identical. Tom Araya has a good voice - but that is it. I like Seasons in the Abyss - the best - because it actually sounds slightly progressive. Kerry King is an idiot, and always makes Slayer look like dumb asses.
