HATE ETERNAL stream new track, “Nothingness of Being”

HATE ETERNAL are streaming another devastating new track off their forthcoming album, ‘Upon Desolate Sands’. The new track titled “Nothingness of Being” can be streamed above.

Regarding the new track, HATE ETERNAL mastermind Erik Rutan comments, “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!”

‘Upon Desolate Sands’ will be released worldwide on October 26. Pre-orders for the album are available across CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop:

‘Upon Desolate Sands’ was produced by Rutan at his Mana Recording Studios, and features artwork by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, SOULFLY, HATEBREED, and more). The track list can be found below.
