Metal/Prog Metal Concert Reviews


Live in Chicago, 2011

Review by Mike Heitzman

This was the best Hatebreed show I have witnessed, and I have seen many. Most have been in large outdoor venues, so it was a real treat to see them so up close and personal. When these guys hit the stage, the volume level went up a notch and so did the crowd’s excitement. The brutal bass beats just tore me apart. I could really feel it pound my chest, and the acoustics in this very old theater were amazing.

They tore through a lot of their favorites such as “Last Breath,” “Perseverance” and “Doomsayer.” Most of the packed crowd that night were obviously extreme Hatebreed fans. They sang along and chanted most of the lyrics. It's great to see a diverse crowd from all walks of life and all ages just letting loose and thrashing to the beats of this great band.

After almost 18 years of producing some of the hardest metal in the business, Jasta and company do nothing less than impress the audience. They still have the energy and hatred that they had back when they first released their Satisfaction is the Death of Desire LP back in '97...maybe even more. You definitely have to catch these guys any time they come around your area.
