Hardcore legends Hatebreed are set to release their seventh studio album, The Concrete Confessional, on May 13 through Nuclear Blast. The record will contain 13 tracks of the band's signature sound, fusing early hardcore aesthetics with a hardened metal attack that has seen the group become one of the most successful bands in the genre. The artwork is a literal depiction of the album's title, decorated with the skull and crossed morningstar emblem Hatebreed often utilizes. Marcelo was able to capture a feeling that will accompany our musical and lyrical vision and he put together a striking piece that speaks volumes.
HATEBREED's seventh studio album, THE CONCRETE CONFESSIONAL, out worldwide via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. HATEBREED have come a long way from the East Coast’s storied nineties underground scene. Their journey has seen them achieve a 2005 GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of Best Metal Performance for Live For This, sell over 1,2 million records, and land a debut on Billboard’s DVD Chart with 2009’s Live Dominance. Moreover, they’ve annihilated audiences from Mayhem Fest to Ozzfest Japan and Download Festival to Wacken, Hellfest, and beyond. Now, The Concrete Confessional fits right into the bold, bloody, and beating heart of the HATEBREED institution
The music that comprises Hatebreed’s seventh album sounds essentially like Slayer: As sung by Jamey Jasta and every song, except ‘Something’s Off’ is under 3 minutes long for Hatebreed’s direct and unapologetic charisma toe solidify on The Conrete Confessional. Believe it or not, there is an iota of experimentalism in The Concrete Confessional. Jamey Jasta seems to be telling us this album is not a duplicate of The Divinity of Purpose nor any other album.

The Concrete Confessional however, is the perfect mix of both old school hardcore Hatebreed, with the more modern metal tinge that they've been known for over the past 6-7 years or so. This album is by far better than their last two releases, merging sing along moments, breakdowns, two step and thrash in its purest form.
