Hate Squad are a band from Germany that mixes thrash, metalcore and death metal together and this is a review of their 2011 album "Katharsis" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffing that combines thrash, metalcore and death metal together which some melodies and technical parts being thrown in at times, while the lead guitars are very distorted and melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and exotic sounding guitar scales.
Vocals are a mixture of deep death metal and hardcore style growls with some high pitched screams being thrown in at times, while the lyrics cover hate and struggle, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and professional sound.
In my opinion Hate Squad are a very good sounding thrash/metalcore/death metal band and if you are a fan of bands that mixes these styles together, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Katharsis" "Misanthropic Soul" "Kill" and "Every Second Counts". RECEMMONDED BUY.
