It’s been 20 years since Hatebreed turned the Metal and Hardcore world upside down with their debut album “Satisfaction is the Death of Desire” and, 15 years since they released “Perseverance”! Hatebreed made a stop in Louisville, Kentucky to celebrate on the “20 Years of Desire/15 Years of Perseverance Tour”! If you know Hatebreed then you know that they bring the hard and heavy and hit you in the face with it! This live was the second time I’ve seen Hatebreed live and man oh man was it a crazy ass show! The venue Diamond Pub & Billiards could not hold in the explosive power of Hatebreed and the fans that it brought! The venue was crazy packed with all types young and old.
The line-up for this show was epic with grindcore band Dying Fetus (click for photos), the brutality and power of Code Orange (click for photos), and Twitching Tongues (which we missed due to the long line to enter the venue). When Hatebreed took the stage they promised to stick to playing mostly songs from their first two records (Satisfaction and Perseverance)! Hatebreed stuck to their promise and delivered by leading the crowd down memory lane with hits like “Afflicted Past”, “Proven”, “Empty Promises”, and “Driven by Suffering”. Jamey is such an amazing lead man and really worked hard to keep the fans happy the entire set. Jamey had a “bad boy” reputation in the past but filled this night with nothing but love for the fans! This show was an epic tribute to the history of Hatebreed and with the new music Hatebreed has, expect them to have an amazing future as well!
