16:10 - Netzach The only "Serpent" track I still listen to is the instrumental Plateau of the Ages
16:04 - Marcel Hubregtse Marrow isn't a bad album but it isn't underrated either. Just look at the score for it here on MS, for example.
16:00 - musclassia I'd probably rank them Mantle>Ashes>Marro w>Folklore>Serpent - I think Serpent is fine but it's not nearly as memorable as the other albums. I prefer Marrow to Folklore, mainly for Nidstang and Ghost.... Mantle beats all though
14:44 - Apothecary Marrow is definitely second-weakest, but that's only because the other three albums you're comparing it to are such higher quality, I don't think it means that it's necessarily a BAD album

Polish extreme metallers Hate have completed work on a new album, entitled Erebos. The album is slated for a November 2010 European release via Listenable Records. The album will be available in North America in January 2011 as an "extended version" featuring bonus live material.
Erebos was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (Decapitated, Vader). The new album contains ten new songs, which are said to be a fusion of blackened death metal, industrial and ambient sounds, deathcore and heavy metal. "Erebos" comes from ancient Greek and means literally "deep darkness" or shadow. Studio reports and vlogs are available on the band's MySpace page.
