THE PROJECT HATE
ARMAGEDDON MARCH ETERNAL
The Project Hate is an all-star Swedish outfit whose electronically charged aggressive assault is a bit jarring to those who may expect these seasoned veterans to sound like some of their former and current other bands such as Grave, Defleshed, and Vicious Art. Instead, ARMAGEDDON MARCH ETERNAL combines the same kind of raging flare usually attached to each member’s Swedish metal act, accentuated with lush orchestration, ambient female vocals, and a noticeable emphasis on programming, the breaking factor in what sets songs like “I See Nothing But Flesh” stick out among the band’s peers. Meshing tidbits of darkwave, a black metal backbone, and dollops of loathing, The Project Hate’s left of center approach and unorthodox style may just be for the fan who yearns to hear the genre stretched and contorted into unexplored areas.
