Hate Eternal is set to drop "Phoenix Amongst the Ashes," the follow up to the band's 2008 behemoth "Fury & Flames," on May 10th through Metal Blade Records. 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 track listing is as follows:

1. Rebirth
2. The Eternal Ruler
3. Thorns of Acacia
4. Haunting Abound
5. The Art of Redemption
6. Phoenix Amongst the Ashes
7. Deathveil
8. Hatesworn

10. The Fire of Resurrection

I think "I Monarch" is their crowning achievement but "Fury and Flames" was quite good too... I did like (some fans didn't) how the drums positively devoured the mix of that album. It was so dense with percussion as to be almost be comical.

I will likely pick up Phoenix upon release.
