Hatefulmurder starts the year with “Crime e Castigo”, a new single released digitally on Friday, January 26. The new track is part of their upcoming album, to be released in the coming months, and is the only one written in Portuguese, bringing elements of death metal, with a contrast between old school and contemporary. It features powerful rhymes where we can hear the dynamic range of vocalist Angélica Burns, in addition to having the identity of Brazilian extreme metal.
About the single, the band say:
It’s the only song with lyrics in Portuguese on our next album. The cool thing about this is that people from Brazil always identify more when it’s our language, right? The album should be released in mid-April 2024. Until then we will release more singles.
On the day of its debut, “Crime e Castigo” was added to the official Spotify All New Metal playlist, which has over 700,000 likes.
The band’s latest music video, “Call Out Your Soul” had an exclusive premiere on the American website Decibel. These new singles are the first to show the band’s new phase in full collaboration and demonstrate that, although it is a sound with a lot of old school influence, it carries the energy of modern metal.
Hatefulmurder has been increasingly stamping the Brazilian metal scene with very successful releases praised by the specialized media, in addition to thousands of streams on digital platforms. The band from Rio de Janeiro is preparing to release their fourth album and continues to promote singles that are acclaimed throughout Europe, America and Asia. Angélica Burns, Thomás Martin and Renan Campos designed the new singles, while mixing and mastering were done by Celo Oliveira.
