Performer Notes
  • Modern metalcore came from a bubbling cauldron of classic hardcore punk, thrash metal, and various shades of crossover, so it's fitting that one of the genre's leading lights is paying tribute to the original songs and artists that helped form them. FOR THE LIONS shows stalwart hardcore brutes Hatebreed in their usual industrial-strength heavy mode, playing covers of punk, hardcore, and metal songs from influences like Black Flag, Bad Brains, Sick of It All, and the Misfits (whose "Hatebreeders," covered here, gave the band their name.) The band largely eschews the obvious songs in favor of some big bands' lesser-known tracks. Their ferocious take on Slayer's "Ghosts of War" is a natural fit for Hatebreed, and Metallica's "Escape" gives the band a chance to inject a little melody into the mix. Some songs, like Cro-Mags' "It's the Limit" and Madball's "Set it Off," draw a direct line to Hatebreed's own sound.
