OPUS I: THE KHAOS HATEFILE
CRUZ DEL SUR
Hate Profile is a conceptual project of sorts with a discernibly death metal tone, as this eight-track disc exhibits. Leading off with a somber Gothic intro that runs too long, a flurry of raw death metal attacks your ears, leaving malevolence in its wake. Cultivating its raw sound with a bevy of extreme metal influence, tracks like the methodically paced “The Day My Feathers Fell” diabolically hypnotizes, while “Recall to Nothing” unleashes the hellhounds for another round of death metal mayhem. Diverse yet ultimately metal, this debut disc offers a lot to the metal fan that needs more than brutality.
