On June 14th, HATE will release their 11th full-length, Auric Gates of Veles, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of Auric Gates of Veles, the band has now launched a video for the first single, "Sovereign Sanctity". Produced by 9LITER FILMY (https://www.9literfilmy.pl) and filmed by Blazej Jankowiak, the clip can be viewed on KNAC.COM HERE.

HATE's front-man ATF Sinner comments: "Well here it is, the first visual to our new album - The Auric Gates of Veles - for the song, "Sovereign Sanctity". We feel the video and the song together pass a story that at once conveys our message universally and yet is full of details and symbolism that tell a deeper story. So instead of me telling you about it, I'll present it to you all with no preface. Just a quick thanks before we start to Blazej Jankowiak and 9LITERFILMY for the massive work done bringing our united vision to life."

Since 1991, HATE have lived up to their name, responsible for some of the angriest and most ruthless death metal unleashed upon the world. With 2017's Tremendum, they took a step toward a darker, more atmospheric, black metal-oriented style and began exploring Slavonic mysticism, and new album Auric Gates Of Veles boldly continues in that direction. "We wanted to go deeper into the subject, both musically and lyrically," asserts vocalist/guitarist ATF Sinner. "We also wanted to record a sharper and better defined rhythm section, a more death metal-oriented one. When it comes to guitar sound, it was meant to be a wall of sonic destruction with dark ambient elements in the background." To say that they achieved that which they set out to create is an understatement, for Auric Gates Of Veles is a titanic record that is both more organic and dynamic sounding, and may well be the finest of their storied career.

With the ominous rumble that heralds the commencement of opener "Seventh Manvantara" giving way to a squall of guitars and blastbeats, it is clear that HATE are playing at the top of their game. Progressing through the rampant thrashing and wide open spaces of "The Volga's Veins", the haunting, crushing grooves of the title track, the equally sinister and tragic sounds of "Salve Ignis" and concluding with the raw black metal of closer "Generation Sulphur", it is a diverse record, not content to rehash the same idea eight times. The centerpiece of the album is arguably the six and a half minute epic thunder of "Sovereign Sanctity", which demands the full attention of the listener from start to finish. "We wanted the songs to sound like anthems, and "Sovereign Sanctity" is a perfect example of such a song. I think it's also one of the best we have written in years," Sinner states.
