out now: Of Hatred Spawn (blasting death metal)

This is a new band to this publication, but at the link below you can hear the full album by this Canadian entity. Of Hatred Spawn is unapologetic death metal. Moshpits and brutality are pretty much the mission of this music. Check it out for yourself. Here is the official propaganda and hype information about the album.

Boonsdale Records
Release: 21 December 2018
Authentic Canadian ultimate death metal. Of Hatred Spawn was formed in 2017 by brothers Remy Tartaglia (previously from Unbidden) and JJ Tartaglia (Skull Fist, Operus, Final Trigger). The project is the first-ever collaborative offering by the brothers and holds great promise and expectations within the metal community around the world. The band also features Oscar Rangel on bass (Ex-Annihilator), and Matt “Coldcuts” Collacott on vocals.
The band delivers an old-school death metal sound in the vein of old Morbid Angel, Decapitated, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Ruination-era Job For A Cowboy, while staying true to the modern trends of today’s extreme metal. Super low-tuned guitars, guttural vocals, blast beat drumming, odd-time signatures, and tempo shifts create the atmosphere for Of Hatred Spawn’s demonic sound. The lyrical themes tell stories of plagues, slavery, darkness and the balance of evil.
Remy Tartaglia elaborates: “On our debut you will find are songs that I had written and refined for years however the project had almost been forgotten. Let’s just say I was on a different path in life and music didn’t seem to be in the cards, until my brother JJ made me realize that these songs were meant to be recorded. This album should exist, therefore it does. You’ll find the music is very aggressive and the lyrics are written from an evil standpoint, from the perspective of a demonic entity or being. This is an exercise in creative theatricality, which provides depth to the art form. My aim is to immerse the listener into the sound and story of the songs, like a good book movie or video game.
Overall, the songs and lyrical themes of this album take place and exist within the alternate universe created by author Robert E. Howard creator of Conan the Barbarian. The lyrics are inspired by this fictional world because it bears similarities to our own. Also, when JJ and I were children our father showed us the original Conan the Barbarian movies, in the first film there is a scene where Conan’s father explains to him as a boy the riddle of steel and shows him a sword. I have always felt that the riddle of steel and the sword applied to me as metal and the guitar, so this album is also inspired by my father who when I was young told me the riddle of steel and showed me the sword.”
