Band: HATE MANIFESTO
Title: To Those Who Glorified Death
Label: Fistbang Records
Style: Black Metal
Wow, this is a 16 years work started by W.S.P. back in 2000 and finally recorded, mixed, mastered and released in the last couple of years. I'd say Hate Manifesto is his one-man-band because Warhead, the drummer who helped out on this album is listed as session musician only, so this might as well be a lifetime of work on one single material, quite a grandiose endeavor when you think of it like that. 7 tracks with a total length of 33 minutes, To Those Who Glorified Death is a putrid, wrathful, brutal and totally captivating release fit for fans of both Black and Death Metal, it's actually a Black Metal of Death is you allow me this categorization. A tornado of sharp guitar riffs, pounding, relentless drumming, clever constructions and a brutal, barbaric vocal tone, all delivered with a perfect production, make from this album something well worth at least sampling out. From my point of view I'd listen to this 100 times better than most of the War Metal bands out there, it has a crystal clear sound but it's as brutal, if not even more brutal than the abovementioned, it's a real feast of ferocious Metal of death!
