Florida death metal legends Hate Eternal are hitting the road for a North American tour! The slaughter will commence in May with support from Vital Remains, Black Fast and Inanimate Existence.

Led by founding member and frontman Erik Rutan, Hate Eternal’s only other official member is bassist J.J. Hrubovcak. Former Necrophagist / Obscura drummer Hannes Grossman is currently a touring member and will take part in Hate Eternal’s upcoming shows.

Hate Eternal is still riding high off the band’s 2015 full-length, Infernus, which gave the band its highest charting spot to date.

“There was a year period where we didn’t have a drummer and me and JJ were spending a lot of time together working on the songs and going over everything in weeks, a month at a time,” Erik Rutan recently told us about Infernus. “We were working on stuff just jamming one night, probably two in the morning or something; that’s usually where I’d have to say almost everything in my career has been written: between midnight and five in the morning. We were just jamming and it was such a unique entity as we were writing it.”
