PRODUCT OF HATE has issued an update about 2012...  and opens the door to 2013, check it out below.

2012 was a hell of a year. While we haven't yet embarked on a National Tour or partnered with a label just yet, 2012 presented Product of Hate with several opportunities to get in front of a larger audience, both here in the 'States and Globally. In 2012, we released two music videos... a pair of brand-new singles... entered the studio three different times... received major press from numerous different outlets... and witnessed our most ambitious video to-date premiere to a live audience at a historic theater in Chicago. Along the way, we played a lot of shows with some great bands, all while getting to meet our metal brothers and sisters face-to-face. We made a lot of new friends this year, and yes, a few new enemies as well. All in all, not a bad year for five guys from Southeastern Wisconsin, we think! Below you'll find a timeline with some of our favorite moments and accomplishments of 2012 as we prepare for a massive 2013.

Based on the title track to our 2010 EP, this longform music video stars Ashley Laurence (HELLRAISER, Slipknot's "Snuff") in the title role, along with Tim Lovelace (MOSQUITO, BUNYAN) as her victim, the film features special make-up and visual FX by Robert Kurtzman's Creature Corps. Kurtzman (creator of FROM DUSK 'TILL DAWN, director of WISHMASTER) also served as a producer on the ambitious short film. The film is immortalized with it's own profile on the IMDb.

-10/30/12: HorrorNews.net reviews "The Unholy Manipulator" short film, calling it "a new gory torturous entry into the horror stratosphere," adding that it's "A great marriage of hard rock and the horror genre served up just the way we like it…..cold and angry!"

As we look ahead into 2013, Product of Hate would like to thank our friends and fans for their lasting support, along with issuing a hearty shout to all of the bands that we've played with over the past twelve months, the venues that have welcomed us, the press/media/websites that have helped spread the word, and to all who have supported Product of Hate in all of our endeavors!

Spread the Hate,
Adam, Mike, Geno, Cody, and Mark

SPARROWS Planning WATAIN Tribute Album


Dallas-based Deathened Black Metal act SPARROWS are currently planning a covers album paying tribute to Swedish Black Metal legends WATAIN. The band has issued an open invitation for acts interested in taking part in the project. Details are lined out in the following statement from SPARROWS:

"We are starting the project of recording a WATAIN Tribute Album. If you are a band, and want to do a cover on the album, we will pay for the time for you to record it, AND give you a copy to use for yourselves. Please share this. Any band that can come to the Dallas, Texas area to record is welcome. If you are from out of state and you can afford a trip to Dallas to record, the same applies to you. The song SPARROWS are putting on the album is 'Reaping Death,' so have that in mind."

Interested parties should message the band at www.facebook.com/thisissparrows  

SPARROWS recently released Mark of the Beast: Indoctrination digitally through bandcamp where it may be streamed in full and/or purchased for the measly sum of $6.66 at sparrowsmetal.bandcamp.com.  

The EP is the first of a three-part series; the connection between the series will be divulged after all three have been released. At a fundamental level, the sound of SPARROWS is rooted in its collective influences, including WATAIN, BEHEMOTH, ENSLAVED, DEICIDE, and GOATWHORE, yet the Dallas Destroyers bring to the table an identity all their own. Recorded in the Sparrows Lair in Dallas' Industrial District by drummer Bryan Nicholas (who also mixed and mastered it), Mark of the Beast: Indoctrination delivers the goods with unmitigated malevolence. The scary part is that it is only the first of three brazen black metal assaults.

A series of videos documenting the recording of the EP can be viewed at this location


SPARROWS is:
Vocals: Jason 
Guitars: Ryan 
Drums: Bryan 
Bass: Michael


Void of Sleep`s “Tales Between Reality and Madness” as an album of the month! Exclusive Streaming of "Blood on my Hands"



Void of Sleep
Prepare yourself for the new year of 2013, wash your sins or not, open your mind or remain the same, make different choices or follow the same old path, pursue your goals or don´t look for something new… get up, drink your coffee, go to work, return home, listen to the same music again and again, go to bed and do it all over again or you can just even if only for a few minutes kick the routine in the ass with new Void of Sleep album “Tales Between Reality and Madness” a crazy and massive full-length in berserk mode!

Italians don´t cease to amaze me with their music legacy, that magnificent country shapes more and more sonic bursts to all tastes and ages. The quartet arose from the beautiful Ravenna in 2010 to the will of Gale (guitar/chorus) also the founder of the now-dead Conspiracy A.D., to complete the new band Gale recruited Allo (drums) already playing in Conspiracy A.D. and Paso (bass) guitar player for Buattitime and well-known producer and owner of the Studio73 and ex- Fear Studio. After some months of rehearsing without a singer Burdo (vocals and guitar) joins the band and so are born Void of Sleep. They began to attract attention with the release of a three-songs promo EP called “Giants & Killers EP” that gave them positive feedback and know they´ve returned with a giant work with 45 minutes of exploding metal.

When I saw the description of the band in facebook I couldn’t help a smile… it says: “Sounds like a shot of whiskey and LSD straight down your throat! …it´s like a deep abyss… where thoughts, sounds, dreams and will remains caged in a hollow corner of your brain, in a dark place… a sort of “coma” where there is no way out!”  Well… I don´t really know what is like to be under the influence of LSD, surely it´s a heavy and fucked up trip, a sort of psychedelic dream that abstracts you from reality but one thing I sure know is that Void of Sleep music is an intense drug inducing my brain on a good trip between reality and madness that keeps me alive and aware and yet in a deep sleep of lunacy.

There’s something very comfortable and rewarding growing inside of me when I’m listening to music that makes me take a leap in time, music influenced by the grand bands of the past who continue to inspire in our intimate our fears, strengths, craziness, happiness, infirmities, defiance, dislikes, all the feelings that make us beings passionate about the strong emotions that music makes us feel. Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Venom, Pantera, Motorhead, Tool, Mastodon, Neurosis are some of the bands that you can listen when you immerse your mind in Void of Sleep but don´t take my words as certain as the certainty of this band being so unique and powerfully refreshing. No… they stand apart from all that already has been heard and hit you like a hurricane with a mighty blend of styles (stoner, sludge, 70´s rock, progressive rock and psychedelic) that give a new flavor to be savored, a new experience to the metal adept.

What comes to mind when each note violently rape your ears is that underground and old school basement warmth that boosts your energy level to the maximum while you headbang in a crazy mosh to the sound of psychedelic hard riffs, loud vocals, fast drumming, hallucinating rhythms, doom slowdowns and exotic melodies. “Tales Between Reality and Madness” is an introspective journey inside the four musician´s brain, a real mix of emotions, physicality, personal challenges, influences and inspirations that exudes and explores the darkest corners of the human mind; anger, depression, madness and awareness of the truth, but also oneiric visions and lysergic nightmares.

You can forget Sabbath, you can forget Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, forget about everything you already now! Press the play button! Can you hear this sound? Open your mind! Absorb the imposing music! Consume it! This is Void of Sleep!
