Ontario’s HATRED REIGNS unleashed to the metal world their debut EP “Realm: I – Affliction” last month on May 25th. The 3 track EP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dark Moon Productions and drums engineered by Geoff McNeely & Joe “Moon” Lyko at Raven Street Studios presents songs from their future full-length concept album that recants the travels of a damned soul to purgatory where their fate will be determined as they face numerous challenges along the way.
Guitarist Jeff Calder explains: “Lyrics were written by Brandon Mayhew (guitarist) and me. The concept was inspired by Dante’s Inferno and movie ‘What Dreams May Come’ (the book is not as similar to the film) while giving our own twist and personal interests on the theme.”
Now a month later, the Ottawa powerhouse premiere their new lyric video “Planes Divide”, a track about a damned soul that travels between gateways towards Necropia.
