The Hate Colony / Press

“Apart from oil this is one of the finest Norwegian exports in recent years. (...) Genre-wise they are very hard to classify as I hear a lot of different influences; hard- and metalcore, death- and thrash metal. Definitely an interesting mix of styles makes this material diverse, perfectly crafted, varied and with a strong and clinically precise execution.”

“Norwegian metalcore is finally reaching the heights of international standards!”

“To me, metalcore is a genre where you easily can step wrong, but this quintet delivers with clinical precision. The album contains great variations, from pure metaltracks, tracks with a more -core approach, and also nods towards trashmetal and other subgenres, without the band losing their signature.”

Henning S. Skjørsæter - Metal Hammer Norway

“These five guys plays metalcore on an international level. Maybe The Hate Colony can make way for other metalcore acts in Norway.(...)"Dead Or Victorious" displays a very promising band, and I´m sure we´ll hear more from them in the years to come.”

Anders Oddsberg - Scream Magazine

“A metal-machine!(...)Since they started in 2007 they´ve developed a brilliant technical expression, which also makes the first minutes of the album completely jaw-dropping.”

“Trondheims finest metal starlets releases an impressive un-Norwegian debut!(..)Their debut is a perfectly crafted album.”

“Norway strikes again!”

“The Hate Colony delivers great riffs, well-structured songs, complex solos, and catchy intstrumentals. And also they have one of the better metalcore vocals I´ve heard in a while!”

“The band delivered fast and hard-hitting metal songs with a professional performance. (..) The Hate Colony proved this night that they absolutely have to something to contribute to the metalscene, and that they´re not a band you´ll easily forget, once you´ve seen them. I have a feeling that 2011 will be a good year for these guys from Trondheim, Norway.”
