I Want to Hear Hategleam’s Newest So Badly That I’m Listening to Their Demo

You all will have to forgive me for loving the ever-living hell out of Hategleam, hashtag sorry not sorry. With all due respect to Guso Drop, I’m not sure that anybody puts idol and hardcore together better.

However! Once upon a time, all the way back to the beginning of 2015, there was a lonely demo on Bandcamp, and it was by an up-and-coming anti-idol project called Hategleam, and that up-and-coming idol project called Hategleam had three anti-idols fronting the band instead of two and wow they were a lot closer to the idol side in those days.

“Hateful World” is still throat-stompingly heavy when it needs to be, but those vocals are ripped straight out of somebody’s idol songwriting paint-by-numbers workbook. What a song.

But for real, if somebody knows how I can score one of these bad boys, I might even go so far as to actually buy it.
