Reviews

HATE PROFILE - OPUS I: THE KHAOS HATELIFE - CRUZ DEL SUR  
Hate Profile is surprisingly good for a 'solo' band. Lead by Hortus Animae's Amon 418, who plays guitar and bass and sings, and accompanied by drummer Gorm the black metal band emphasizes its dark melodies over other elements to bring the listener the first act of a planned trilogy. The brooding gloom is not marred or deviated by the presence of different tempos on the album or by the juxtaposition of screams and spoken vocals. in fact, everything is presented within the darkness of the founder's mind. There is a minimal (and unneeded) usage of keyboards and songs can be fast or slow. While a track can be reminiscent of Dissection another can veer towards slower Darkthrone. The biggest distraction though lies with the light drum sound of Gorm whose pots and panish snare sound is absolutely powerless. Fix that and banish the keyboards and the second opus will give the band a much more earnest and underground hateful profile. - Ali "The Metallian"
