Beartooth’s upcoming album, Aggressive, is out in two short weeks on June 3rd. So, this will probably be the last new material we hear before the album releases. “Hated”, is definitely in the same vein as the other tracks we’ve heard from Aggressive so far. It demonstrates some nice punk and hardcore influences, leaning more heavily on the punk side than Disgusting did. While I do enjoy most of the tunes Beartooth have released so far from Aggressive, I can’t help but feel like they could have done so much more lyrically and composition-wise. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not asking for Disgusting: Part Deux. I just loved the highs and lows Disgusting took you through and I can’t help but feel like the songs released so far have been a bit stagnant in terms of the raw emotion I know Caleb Shomo can dish out.
I really want to be wrong on this one, and I really do hope that we’ve just heard the wrong tracks from Aggressive. Give “Hated” a listen below and let us know what you think in the comments!
