06:42 - psykometal So, like a Body Count thing? :P
04:57 - 3rdWorld Dayum, Death Grips begin their latest record with a thrash hip hop track. Sounds really awful in words but they really do make it work.
04:54 - 3rdWorld I really thought it could be from the 80's but damn thats a '12 record. Nice artist but that doesn't count out Kendrick for me.
04:45 - Apothecary Which makes sense in part, as he is from Zimbabwe by birth (hence Mugabe on that album cover)
04:45 - Apothecary Ehhh... different strokes, but I'd take Billy Woods over Kendrick any day. He is does some of the BEST sociopolitical hip hop out there imo. Profound comments on the effects of imperialism and colonialism
04:42 - 3rdWorld Good alternative hip hop track. Sounds exactly like a precursor to something that Kendrick is doing. :)

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.
