The Project Hate MCMXCIX’s New Album
Much as you can dedicate your time to Metal, there’s no fuckin’ way you’re going to be able to keep up with everything that’s released. Not even if you limit yourself to everything that has a name to be reckoned with. The Project Hate is such a name, and I’d stick my hand in a sheep’s rectum if less than 80% of you have read or heard the name at some point in your life. Hell, I regularly stick my hand in sheep anyway, so what the fuck do I care.
The three Swedes from Örebro, recently reinforced by a charming lady called Ruby Roque from Portugal, are up to their eighth album since the band formed in 1998. The album, Bleeding the New Apocalypse (Cum Victriciis In Manibus Armis), came out halfway into February of this year and if Rufio hadn’t turned my attention to it, I probably wouldn’t have found out about it until somewhere around the end of the century. But Rufio did, so let’s take a closer look at this thing.
Bleeding, as I will now refer to the album with, continues in the same Anti-Christian vein as the band’s previous material. That means half the shit’s in Latin and takes a dump on pretty much everything Christianity has ever come up with. In example, the album’s opening track was baptized – not literally of course, fuckin’ duh – Iesus Nazarenus, Servus Mei. Though the last time I took Latin classes was when I still crapped my diapers and burped white slurry, I do believe that means Jesus of Nazareth, My Slave. I bet the pope wouldn’t approve of that!
That’s fine though, as I also bet the pope doesn’t enjoy listening to the band’s feisty Metal. It’s characterized by low-tuned guitars, lower than usual, brutal male vocals and pure female cleans, symphonics to spice things up and an all through thick dark atmosphere.
Bleeding contains only six songs, though they still span well over an hour of music, which means long songs. The shortest is 08:50 in length, while the longest spans 13:05. The one selected to give flavor to today’s post, the one suggested by Rufio, is called A Revelation of Desecrated Heavens, and it bites at your face as a dog that’s both starved and rabid. Face-tearing!
The Project Hate has its own official website, located here, where you can find links towards purchasing the album (look towards the bottom). Moreover, the band’s label, Season of Mist, provides us with a free download link to Summoning Majestic War, one of Bleeding’s other five songs. Enjoy it motherfuckers!
