review by electrowelt.com
Dirty, dark, and vicious. Hurtful, sorrowful and hateful.
spawned from the mind of ISK (also driving force behind
PsychotekTrauma, VexXxeR, Anxiety Disorder and Lokomotiv) early 2007,
under the moniker Aktiv[e|h]ate, as a portraial of all the hateful,
violent, insane, sexually deviant thoughts that populated it. Starting
as a rather generic harsh/dark electro band, the band laid dormant for
more than one year, working towards defining a good clear sound and
identity and in 2009 finally started playing live with it's live debut
as opener act for german band Stereomotion in OPorto. aktivehate
released two free EPs during 2009 through portuguese netlabel Enough
Records (check discography section for downloads) and continued playing
live with many bands, some of which big names in the genre. aktivehate
has played with Lokomotiv, Lith, U.M.M., Control Alt Deus, Sci-Fi
Industries, Waste Disposal Machine, Sektor 304, Eden Synthetic Corps,
Stereomotion, Alien Vampires and S.A.M..
Just before the release of second ep
"Washed in Blood", the band then changed it’s name into less confusing
“aktivehate”. In the last months of 2009 aktivehate signed a deal with
Hungarian label Advoxya Records to release it's debut album, "In
Terrorem", which came out in June 2010. The band is now busy writing new
songs for upcoming release and rehearsing it's new line-up for future
Raw voices and 15 Tracks of extreme
melodic and harsh sounds is a Trademark of "Active Hate". The 2010
release "In terrorem" is a big step forward in the history of this Band.
The complete album sounds like a Soundtrack of an Horror Movie.
Deep guitars combined with soft string
lines and a voice that is freezing blood forced me to listen this album
in maximum range of my hi-fi system. I´m really impressed by the sound
quality, it´s hard to find bands produce in this range of high quality.
Most bands have more than thin sounds
and using the same sounds Track by Track. "In terrorem" is different,
cause every Track has his own soul and this soul is more than dark! All I
can tell you, that this is a straight tip: BUY THIS ALBUM!!!
