We forgot to ask Gary Wolstenholme if there were as many annoying pricks wearing backpacks at Hatebreed’s Manchester Academy 2 show as there were when the band played London, mainly because Jamey Jasta’s face just brings out the urge to M0SH in us. Yep.

Hatebreed are one of the most consistently excellent live bands around. They always have been and probably always will be so we headed down to the first properly sweaty gig of the year to see Jamey Jasta growling his way through some hardcore anthems.
Pre-gig meal: Chilango. Grilled chicken burrito with black beans, hot and mild salsa, lettuce. No cheese or sour cream, please.
6 things we learnt watching Hatebreed again…

The Divinity of Purpose
28 January 2013
by David Keevill
It’s a question as old as Gandalf’s liver-spotted inner thigh, but one worth asking again; do Jamie Jasta and co. breed hate or are they themselves bred from the stuff? Either way you look at it, with the arrival of this, their seventh studio album and the advent of yet another record that you’d entirely expect from the fivepiece, you’re set to thinking; how many liberties can one band take with a name? More importantly, do we care enough to find out if The Divinity of Purpose can answer this question for us? Of course we do (but probably shouldn’t).

If Bloodstock Open Air 2012 had a floor that needed punching, then Hatebreed were the band to do it. A lot of people raised an eyebrow when Jamie Jasta and co. were announced for the festival, but boy, did they silence their critics this weekend.

Before we get the ball rolling it has to be said I quite like a bit of Hatebreed. I can’t say that there is a perfect album end to end, but they sure do know how to make some floor-punching, dick-shrivelling stompers that are always accompanied by chest beating choruses. ‘Straight To Your Face’, ‘Doomsayer’, ‘This Is Now’ or ‘I Will Be Heard’ all result in my car going bat shit crazy with my crew slamming one another on the back seat. But will this debut solo record from Jamey Jasta prove that there more to the man than a head scarf and a huge gob?

So my liver and I survived November somehow, but man was it a struggle on both of us. November was packed full of amazing metal shows here in Atlanta, and luckily I went to every damn one.

These two seemingly-lovely Australian girls, Vicky and Olivia go by the mantle of “The Twins”. They enjoy the naked, rutting company of men who are in successful bands. They claim:
“What we do with meeting these guys and sleeping with them is an artform. We’re really proud.”
Bet your parents are just as proud, and artform? Uh huh…

Back at the tail end of 2005, Roadrunner Records turned 25 years of age and decided that it might be a good idea to have a party.
That party involved a collective of Roadrunner artists from the past and present partying live, onstage at the Nokia Theater in Times Square in New York City on December 15, 2005. That’s some party.
Obviously, Roadrunner filmed this magnanimous event and now they’ve turned it into a DVD which can accurately be described as AWESOME.

Ozzfest 2008 has released details of this year’s event, which will include a special, all-star tribute to ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott and will take place in Dimebag’s home state of Texas on 9 August 2008.
The All-Star Dimebag Tribute will go onstage directly after Dimebag’s brother and former bandmate, Vinnie Paul’s latest band, Hellyeah perform. The collective will play a variety of Pantera songs.
The group will include stars such as Slayer’s Kerry King, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell and Mike Inez, Anthrax’s Scott Ian and Charlie Benate, Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta, King Diamond and former Damageplan bassist Bob Zilla.
Metal Hammer has reported that Dimebag’s partnet Rita Haney said: “To have the name ‘Dimebag’ still, to this day, unite musicians to pay homage in such a respectful way, is very overwhelming. In Dime’s vision, it’s always been about a damn good time.”
While Gigwise reported on Sharon Osbourne saying: “When we decided on Dallas as the site for this year’s Ozzfest, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to ‘Dimebag’ Darrell since it was his hometown.”
It does look bloody good, doesn’t it.
Ozzfest will take place on 9 August 2008 at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas
