Hello again to my rockers and metalheads out there. Today I have a review for you from a band i've been a fan of for quite some time. The band is Escape the Fate and the album is “Hate Me”. Sit back and enjoy!
“Hate me” is the upcoming release for Nevada based rock band Escape the Fate. This is the follow-up to 2013's “Ungrateful” which I was a huge fan of. This album features some changes to the line-up which seems to have benefited the band based upon the overall feel and sound of this album. Don't worry i'll go into detail soon. The overall message I got while listening to this album was about overcoming, not giving up, and fighting back when the odds are stacked against you. Songs like “Live for Today”, “Alive” and “I Won't Break” in particular.
Escape the Fate has always impressed me with their music with their diverse sound through out their albums and “Hate Me” is no different. Aggressive songs like “Just a Memory” and “Les Enfants Terrible”, slower ballad's like “Breaking Me Down” and “Let Me Be”. There is literally something for everyone in this 10 track masterpiece!
Hands down my favorite track is “Hate Me”. The beginning reminds me of some type of cool synthesized dub-step back track followed by the signature chunky, grungy guitar tone and some really amazing drums to accompany it. As with all their songs, this song has a catchy hook at every turn. You are sure to use the repeat button on this song.
“Remember Everything” is another tune that is addictive as hell. It grabs you from the first riff and never lets go. I really dig the message in the song, which speaks to facing adversity in life and using it to better yourself. This was another track I had a difficult time getting past as I kept hitting the playback button.
If you've been reading the rest of this review then obviously you can tell that my opinion of this album are that it's an absolute masterpiece. This new line up not only packs more punch as a hard rock act, but have stepped up level of creativity in hooks. I highly recommend you run(not walk) to wherever you buy cd's from and go pick this up on it's release date. “Hate Me” will be released on Oct 30th. I get this a very emphatic 9.5 out of 10 insane horns \m/
