Hatefulmurder has been increasingly stamping the brazilian metal scene with very successful releases and praised by the specialized media, in addition to thousands of streams on digital platforms. After the troubled time of the pandemic, and the last album ‘Reborn’ released in 2019, the band returns with a new power to promote the new studio album, the single “Eye For An Eye”. The song arrives accompanied by a lyric video made by Gabby Vessoni.
The new track brings elements of Death Metal, with a contrast between old school and contemporary with potent rhymes where we can hear the dynamic range of Angélica Burns in all its glory talking about a theme that makes the listener reflect. “The lyrics of the song ‘Eye for An Eye’ bring reflections on the consequences of human behavior in its wildest and most primitive state, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”, comments vocalist Angélica Burns.
These new singles are the first to show the band’s new phase in full collaboration and demonstrate that, although it’s a sound with a lot of oldschool influence, it also carries the energy of modern metal with a lot of potential.
Angélica Burns, Thomás Martin and Renan Campos designed the new singles, while the mixing and mastering are by Celo Oliveira.
Formed in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Hatefulmurder has a great baggage, where they are more than 10 years on the road, which includes the release of three studio albums and two EPs, in addition to two South American tours and four Brazilian tours. The band is composed by Angélica Burns (vocals), Renan Campos (guitar), Felipe Modesto (bass) and Thomás Martin (drums).
Critically acclaimed, ‘Reborn’ (2019), is the most recent album released, completely independently, was financed by the fans themselves through a crowdfunding campaign. A cohesive, strong and daring album, which marks another great moment in the band’s career. Made by fans for fans.
The tour for the album ‘Red Eyes’ (2017) – released by the British label Secret Service Records-, is one of the biggest independent tours in the history of Brazilian metal. Traveled more than 13,000 km by bus with 24 shows in 30 days passing through all regions of Brazil. This album also marks the entry of vocalist Angélica Burns, with her voice that has become the band’s newest weapon, showing all her power in songs and live performances.
Back to the ‘No Peace’ era (2014), debut album released by the renowned Brazilian label Cogumelo Records, Hatefulmurder conquered Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile making their first tour outside Brazil with “fury in the stage and blood in the eyes”, as they like to call it.
In January 2023 the band released the single “Psywar”, along with an amazing music video. In July the band released the track “Eye For An Eye”, with a lyric video to promote the work. The two singles are part of the new album that will be released in the second half of this year.
From underground to big stages, from EPs to LPs, from independents to record labels, step by step Hatefulmurder builds its history.
