HATE ETERNAL Signs With METAL BLADE RECORDS

January 22, 2007

Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of death metal legends HATE ETERNAL to worldwide deal. The band is currently writing material for the follow-up to 2005's "I, Monarch", which is expected to be recorded at HATE ETERNAL mainman Erik Rutan's own Mana Recording Studios in June/July 2007.

Formed in 1997, HATE ETERNAL's goal has always been to challenge musical limitations and create new boundaries with no compromise; to obtain goals aimed at by many yet reached by only a select few; to create music that not only defies all clich├ęs, but that creates a true sense of power, dissonance and consonance, heaviness and speed, melody and brutality, simply put horrific hymns. Guitarist Erik Rutan has crafted an impressive career by attaining that goal consistently for well over a decade with his legendary work in RIPPING CORPSE and MORBID ANGEL. Not to mention his other career as engineer/ producer for bands such as CANNIBAL CORPSE, SOILENT GREEN, SIX FEET UNDER, CELLADOR, VITAL REMAINS, PREMONITIONS OF WAR, GOATWHORE and INTO THE MOAT, just to name a few.

Metal Blade Records owner/CEO Brian Slagel, stated: "I am truly honored to be working with HATE ETERNAL. They are a legendary band and I am so happy to welcome them to the Metal Blade family."

Erik Rutan commented: "Signing to Metal Blade for us reconfirms that all the hard work, blood, sweat and tears we have put into the band has been worth every single moment. This is completely amazing. We know we will forge on with all the support and confidence a band can ask for from their record label. We are proud to be a part of the hugely successful Metal Blade family and look forward to bringing our music to the next level."
