Listening to their musical brutality you’d think Hatebreed would sooner smash your face in than have a pleasant conversation with you. Not so. When Synthesis met up with singer Jamey Jasta, he was cuddly as a kitten. Okay, that may be an overstatement, but our camera operator/designer sure had to restrain herself from petting him. Check out the footage (below) RIGHT AFTER peeping Synthesis interview (right here).
For those who missed their summer tour, do not fret yerself. Their live DVD, Live Dominance, will be floor-punching streets in September:
