Hate Manifesto are a band from Greece that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Herald Of Triumph" which will be released in June by Helter Skelter Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep before going into a very fast and raw war metal direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly bestial growls while the music also mixes in a great amount of black metal elements and a small amount of melody can also be heard in some of the riffing.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. The music also brings in a good mixture of both modern and old school influences and all of the music sticks to a heavier direction and towards the end a brief use of melodic guitar leads can also be heard.
On this recording Hate Manifesto remains true to the mixture of war, black and death metal from previous releases. 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 war, black and death metal, you should check out t his ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Herald Of Triumph" and "The Deification Of Your Extinction". 8 out of 10.
