Hate Eternal Are Death Metal Masters in ‘Lake Ablaze’ — Video Premiere
In a discography as coveted as Hate Eternal's, 'Phoenix Amongst the Ashes,' their latest album, still amazes. Released in May by Metal Blade, the 10-song affair is a study in intensity and control. Just when a section in an arrangement seems like it's going to run off the rails, the power trio reign it all in, proving they have the musical prowess and know how to pull off material this technically involved.
Guitarist-vocalist Erik Rutan commented that "the band has come up with one of [their] heaviest, most twisted, evil, melodic, and insane albums yet," and we can't disagree with the dude. Noisecreep is beyond thrilled to be premiering 'Lake Ablaze,' the brand new video from Hate Eternal. Directed by David Brodsky [As I Lay Dying, Suicide Silence], the clip is unlike most other death metal videos. Instead of the usual shock tactic type of imagery favored by other directors, Brodsky bathes Rutan's guttural screams in soft orange, pink and purple light. Check out the video below the cut.
