The Bay Area thrashers revealed their newest music video for “Hatred United/United Hate” and it is everything you can imagine it to be from them and more, with its catchy riffs grasping rhythm from beginning to end. Frontman Mark Osegueda explains about the mindset of the album and it’s sound:
“When we started working with Jason Suecof for the last two records, ‘Relentless Retribution’ and ‘The Dream Calls For Blood’, we thought we were gonna do two records intense like that and kind of go back [to the more] melodic [direction of 1990’s] ‘Act III’, but the last two records, we’ve been loving so much writing that style, and the crowds have been enjoying them so much.
“In our minds, even if we think we’re being more brutal than we’ve ever been, it’s inevitable that we are obsessed with melody, so there’s always gonna be melody that separates us from, say, different thrash bands or extreme bands, because we always veer to a melody and catchy hooks. No matter how brutal we think we’re being, we like to throw in hooks, so we’re just gonna carry on how we’re doing now and try to pick as many of the young punters there and keep our stronghold on the old punters.”
