Metalcore quartet Hatebreed moved to the Roadrunner label for their fifth full-length, SUPREMACY, but they stuck to the sound fans love: punishing punk-metal delivered in 30-second blasts. Hatebreed's music isn't built on subtlety or variation, but that isn't what the group is about. Jamey Jasta's fierce, machine-gunning vocals are backed by a brutal metallic onslaught that seems intent on flattening everything in sight. SUPREMACY doesn't deliver anything new, but for lovers of head-crushing, fist-pumping metalcore that's a very good thing.
