Had the pleasure of seeing my friends in Hatebreed this evening. The show was a little over an hour out of Nashville in Clarksville Tennessee at a newer venue called O’Connor’s Irish Pub.
Took they long drive out with my buddy Jack Gibson, bassist for Exodus. Hatebreed are currently on tour with Clutch and Dropkick Murphys . Tonight being an off night from the full package. Was great to catch up with all the guys, haven’t seen them in a year or so. As always the absolutely CRUSHED the crowd from start to finish. Set list was full of crowd favorites including, Destroy Everything, Live Through This, This is now among others. Celebrating their 25th anniversary on this current run, they are digging deep, going all the way back to the beginning. Being two and a half decades in to their career , they are on top of their game with no end in site. Returning to the studio following this tour to begin a new record .

My first experience with the band was on Ozzfest in 2004. Never having seen a ” Wall Of Death” before , I was hooked after the first show. Having been a fan now for 15 years and become friends with all the guys, i still love seeing them . Nothing quite like a Hatebreed show or crowd. No ballads, not much talking, just a whole lot of East Coast Hard Core and head banging.
