Last fall saw the release of Hatebreed’s latest studio album Weight of The False Self, which saw the group embrace a metalcore sound. The record saw Jasta deliver powerful, authoritative vocals, while the band’s other musicians each had an opportunity to shine. This new studio album hosted the single Instinctive “(Slaughterlust).”
“The music is amazing; Jamey Jasta’s vocals fill the atmosphere with loud and authoritative sound, Frank Novinec, Wayne Lozinak and Chris Beattie light up each track with deep guitar riffs and Matt Byrne shakes each tune with rapid, thunderous drum beats. Hatebreed delivers on Weight of the False Self because the vocals and instrumentation give listeners a taste of true metalcore,” mxdwn reviewer Cait Stoddard explained.
Jasta has been busy throughout the last year as well, teaming up with Max Weinberg of Slipknot, Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance, Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan for a cover of The Misfits “Earth AD” this past August. He also teamed up with Howard Jones as Black Alpaca for the song of the same name.
