Hate Manifesto are a duo from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays a blackened form of war metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "To Those Who Glorified Death" which was released as a joint effort by Fistbang Records and Unholy Distro.
A very fast and brutal war metal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats along with some bestial growls being added onto the recording a few seconds later and the riffs also mix in a great amount of black metal elements and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffs also bring in a small amount of dark sounding melodies at times and the music also incorporates a great amount of old school influences while still sounding very contemporary and one track also adds in a small amount of guitar solos and leads and the album also remains very heavy and brutal from beginning to ending of the recording.
Hate Manifesto creates another recording that remains true to the blackened war metal style that was established on the previous split, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover war, hatred, and genocide themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hate Manifesto and if you are a fan of black and war metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "To Those Who Glorified Death" "Wrath Hammer" and "Conqueror's Memorial". 8 out of 10.
