00:44 - SSM I always think this is a great site, and it will be with this staff.
00:42 - SSM The Glory Days? It's always the glory days if you want. Sometimes it's gory, but mostly glory.
00:35 - Nimlot I could have done more, but I was just a kid in MS's halcyon days.
00:31 - Nimlot When you say "a long time" you mean "a few years", I've been here for over a decade and for almost as long as I've been listening to metal.
00:28 - Jaeryd I've also been a lurker for a long time. I don't post much or participate in the forums, but I like keeping an eye on things going on, and I like a lot of the staff here and respect their opinions on music.

Whether you're an elitist, an American scene kid, a metalhead, a hardcore punk aficionado, or one of those old jaded folks at the back still clasping that Victory Records mail order from the 90s to your chest, you tend to get have certain amount of expectation of what Hatebreed's albums sound like. The Connecticut stompers signed up a new deal with Razor & Tie and you know what beauty comes with it: another mosh-inducing, pits-erupting brand new disc - namely The Divinity Of Purpose.
I liked the self-titled. The title track and everyone bleeds now are particularly good. The new stuff sounds a bit less heavy thus far which I hope is not true w/ all the songs on the album. Here is the teaser:
If you like Hatebreed you should like this well enough. However, it does branch out a tiny bit with more backing vocal parts and metal melodic hooks in a few parts. Overall, it's Hatebreed doing their thing. Not as heavy in many ways like their earlier albums but the guitars, aggression on vocals, etc. is all there. Good, not great.
