This year’s performance takes Hatebreed’s GMM tally into double digits. Based out of Bridgeport, Connecticut, Hatebreed are known for their singular amalgam of hardcore, crossover and thrash. Throughout their almost thirty years on the scene they have exhibited an amazing ability to blend these genres into a galvanising bare-knuckled cocktail that effortlessly bridges the gap between musical styles. Frontman Jamey Jasta oozes charisma and in the past they’ve collaborated successfully with numerous colleagues from other subgenres. Hatebreed are one of hardcore’s leading lights, a reputation they’ve earned a thousand times over, both on stages worldwide and in the studio. Just have a quick listen to ‘Weight of the False Self’ (2020). The closing line of opening track ‘Instinctive (Slaughterlust)’ captures the essence of Hatebreed’s mission: Unleash the savage instinct! #GMM23
