Based solely on the music as their lyrics are entirely in Russian, HateCrime deliver a thrashing yet melodic album where, judging from the song titles, may be addressing social issues as discrimination or racism in a decaying world.
Sonically it blends black metal, melodic death, some thrash riffs here and there and enough breakdowns to make the hardcore kids sizzle, as it resembles In Flames or Arch Enemy. This band roots itself on what metal music had to offer at the very beginning of the 21st century, ditching the more dissonant path Death Metal and Black Metal have been showing over this last decade. Death is coming! (azathoth)
