Hate Eternal Release Instrumental Version Of “Upon Desolate Sands”

Hate Eternal have released an instrumental version of their 2018 album “Upon Desolate Sands.” You can purchase that on Bandcamp. Erik Rutan commented:

“For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to release an all instrumental version of a Hate Eternal album to allow a different perspective into our music. On the two-year anniversary of our Season Of Mist release ‘Upon Desolate Sands’, that time has finally come. Simply titled ‘Upon Desolate Sands – The Instrumentals’, it’s mastered by Alan Douches of West Side Music and is only available on the Hate Eternal Bandcamp. We hope you enjoy this unique journey through the dynamic passages of this musical landscape.”

Hate Eternal Premiere New Song “All Hope Destroyed”

Hate Eternal have premiered a new song titled “All Hope Destroyed,” via Kerrang!. This track is from the band’s new album “Upon Desolate Sands,” which will be released on October 26. Erik Rutan commented:

“‘All Hope Destroyed‘ is an anomaly on the new record. Controlled chaos, yet unbridled insanity, with a dramatic melodic ending. It encapsulates so much of who Hate Eternal are musically but also explores a bit of new territory that we’ve never fully realized before. This song is a unique entity on the new Hate Eternal album and one I believe truly shines.”

Hate Eternal Premiere New Song “Nothingness Of Being”

Hate Eternal have premiered a new song titled “Nothingness Of Being.” This track is from the band’s new album “Upon Desolate Sands,” which will be released on October 26.

Erik Rutan commented:

“For years I have wanted to add a heavier and darker element into Hate Eternal, and for years that vibe just never came to me. For this album the inspiration came and the heaviness followed. Using a lower tuning then our norm for a few songs on “Upon Desolate Sands” and going through some personal life experiences, helped create a depth of darkness and sense of despair to inspire me to write “Nothingness of Being”. I never have forced anything when it comes to the writing process, we just let the songs flow naturally and write and play what we feel. Crafting a couple of songs with a completely different tuning really helped direct a different path and direction for the writing process. This song amongst some of the more traditional chaotic tunes on the album helps really create a sense of dynamics in a dramatic way. Every song on this album has its own unique texture creating a vast landscape of musical expression and a multitude of emotions, pushing the envelope in every way we can!”
