MADE OF HATE
PATHOGEN
AFM

Melodic death metal is the order of the day from Polandís Made of Hate on their eight-track endeavor PATHOGEN. Sticking closely to the formula employed by Children of Bodom to the point of plagiarizing, this unitís batch of middle of the road Euro metal anthems falls flat thanks to a ill-fitted vocal performance and a self-absorbed guitar presence whose superfluous slabs of righteous shredding come off as clinical and weighed down by convention. Nonetheless, Made of Hate provide an unimaginative no-frills metal assault that is a bit too rough around the edges in crucial spots to be considered anything above second rate.
