CONCEIVED BY HATE
CONCEIVED BY HATE
Death & Beyond
(Satanath Records)
46:26min

Started back in 2003 under a different name, CONCEIVED BY HATE is one of those overlooked gems in the underground. Their debut LP "Pestilence Reborn" from 2012 already showed a good direction in terms of identity: a relentless attack of mid-paced Death / Thrash Metal. And their sophomore album, "Death & Beyond" expands further into their style. One of the highlights here is the solid rhythm section. C.B. on bass and V.K. on drums offer one heavy and thick foundation to the riff fest that M.Q. (who also handles vocals) and R.V. unleash upon the listener. And M.Q.'s vocals fit perfectly in this style, providing a raspy Van Drunen - esque grunt that it's not too deep, not too manic. It's amazing that every song has at least two of those memorable riffs that could be found in any old tracks from AUTOPSY and MASTER. Actually, those bands (and some unmistaken NWOSDM influence with some eerie melodies) are a good reference point for CONCEIVED BY HATE. But there is also a twist in the plot, due to the really good keyboard pads and atmospheres from keyboard player T.M. Yep, the keyboards add a lot of variation to the songs where they are featured, similar, but not as present, as in the early NOCTURNUS material. Production wise, the album sounds great. Clear mix, present vocals, thick guitar tone, pounding bass tone and tight drum sound. it does has some dynamic range. It is not compressed to the max so the albums breathes along, which makes a huge difference and makes the whole listening experience really enjoyable. As I said before, these guys are great and, in my humble opinion, criminally underrated! They deserve a lot more of attention for their excellent material. Go ahead and get "Death & Beyond". you won't regret it. A must buy for any respected Death and Thrash Metal fan! Go show the band your interest here: www.facebook.com/conceivedbyhate.
