The Divinity Of Purpose
Label: Razor & Tie - Concord
Metalcore innovators Hatebreed keep on bringing the angry-dude angst with The Divinity Of Purpose. The aggro vibes are more blown out than usual, in fact. Who knows, maybe CNN mistakenly tagging them a white power act during the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting in 2012 pissed them off to entirely new extremes? Regardless, singer Jamey Jasta sounds like Mr. McGoo on 'roids while barking about drawing lines in sand, making stands and putting things to torches (whatever that means). As per the usual, his mates are meaty, big and bouncy -- especially on highlight rager "Nothing Scars Me."
