“Who’s got more heart than you? No one!” screams HATEBREED vocalist Jamey Jasta as ‘Own Your World’ begins, and that essentially sums up the band for the uninitiated: Hatebreed’s wide-eyed wonder in the face of life’s most challenging abysses is the group’s truly important attribute and characteristic, Hatebreed forging a legacy of self-help and therapy for those who probably need it most. Though Hatebreed will never top career highlight Perseverance (a record that, literally, has saved lives), The Divinity of Purpose is the group’s best album since Perseverance, this record is a straight-hate testament to the loud, the fast and the venomous, and truly in line with the band’s pre-release “all pit, no shit” description as the riffs and song-structures here are invigorating, impressive and full of only adrenaline-on-adrenaline aural hijacking. The lyrics are, as always, admirable in their dedication to only the most noble of positives including, but not limited to: living life fully; hard work; carpe diem; only doing what’s right; and, most importantly, never, ever giving up in the face of any adversity. These messages are what make Hatebreed a social force as opposed to just a band, and if global governments were paying attention they would award Hatebreed some sort of acknowledgement for the public service the group so boldly and effectively renders.
