13:12 - !J.O.O.E.! Failing that, he could always talk about one of his favourite dark ambient albums: A Deeper Kind Of Slumber by Tiamat.
13:02 - Marcel Hubregtse So could I. Especially given the fact I was hugely into heavy music at the time in both Singapore and The Netherlands and no one (not the user :p ) ever mentioned heavy hard rock in those countries.
12:11 - !J.O.O.E.! Tell us more about the "heavy hard rock" genre that was so well established in the 80s. I could do with a laugh.

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.
