Hate Eternal

Founded in the late '90s, Hate Eternal are an amelodic, ultra-fast death metal/grindcore band led by former Morbid Angel and Ripping Corpse guitarist Erik Rutan. While those bands employed Rutan strictly as a guitarist, Hate Eternal presented a change for Rutan in that the group found him doing much of the lead singing in addition to playing guitar. Nonetheless, Hate Eternal's late-'90s material was quite similar to the type of things that Rutan had done in the past. With Rutan having recruited fellow guitarist Doug Cerrito (formerly of Suffocation), bassist Jared Anderson, and drummer Tim Yeung, Hate Eternal signed with Wicked World in 1999 and recorded their first album, Conquering the Throne. Shortly afterword, Yeung was replaced by Derek Roddy and Rutan left Morbid Angel to focus on Hate Eternal, and in 2002 the band released its second album, King of All Kings, on Earache. Hate Eternal set out on tour to promote the album, but quickly ran into trouble when they had to replace Jared Anderson with Randy Piro due to a drug problem. In 2005, the band returned with its third album, I, Monarch. While the album was met with favorable reviews by critics, the band suffered from internal problems and had to cancel its touring, with Roddy leaving the group in 2006. Rutan recruited drummer Jade Simonetto to replace him the following year, and the band got back to recording, releasing Fury and Flames on Metal Blade in 2008. Two years later, Piro was replaced by bassist J.J. Hrubovcak just before the band went into the studio to begin work on its fifth album, Phoenix Amongst the Ashes, which was released in early 2011. ~ Alex Henderson
