Hateplow was an outlet organized by several members of Florida's Malevolent Creation to wax their crude and callous opinions on prostitutes, drug addicts and the mentally handicapped. Signed to Pavement through their obvious association, they forged a parallel existence to that better known and superior group during a time when they were releasing some pretty average efforts In Cold Blood, The Fine Art of Murder.
One might hold on to some hope that Phil Fasciana had shuffled some of the inspirational writing that lacked from those albums over to this project, but Hateplow is surprisingly even more void of good ideas or memorable sequences. Everybody Dies has more of a grind and hardcore aesthetic surging through its crack star running shoes, with speed and intensity that rival what Phil's mainstay were recording at the time.
One could certainly dub this 'ghetto death' or 'white trash metal' and get away with the phrase, because that's really the purpose of the band: to explore the hard truths of urban decay by the most mean spirited means possible. Malevolent Creation Album) the more serious aspects of cultural decline, serial killings and so forth, but Hateplow pursue more baseline atrocities like killing crack addicts "Crackdown" or the cycle of the cocaine addict "Ante Up".
There's also a clear sexual element to the album, celebrating coprophagy "Ass to Mouth Resuscitation"anal sex the brief brute-grinder "Anally Annie", and those are the lyrics Even anger at having one's toilet serves as a menstruation depository "The Gift Giver". I'd like to say that this stuff was pretty shocking or revolutionary for the time, but it's little more offensive than the 11 o'clock news or the latest King of the Hill episode.
There's definitely still enough violence involved for the fans of the related band, but it seems somehow more shallow in this context. That aside, the music itself is simply too forgettable. A few of the tunes rely too closely on the bland moshing chug Album) like "Stalker" and "Challenged", while others whittle away in unmemorable deathgrind brutality like "Ante Up" and "Denial".
Often, the two will collide into a more dynamic series of blows, but aside from a small handful of riffs "Prison Bitch" and the silly "Born with Both"the album fully lacks distinction outside of its primitive lyrical mire, Born With Both - Hateplow - Everybody Dies (Cassette. Drummer Larry Hawke, who sadly passed away after laying down his tracks, does offer a strong and taut performance, and the production of the debut is in fine shape: clean and effectively percussive.
Otherwise there is just not enough of value to recommend this. Not even the potent cover of Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" is worthy of redeeming the sum of these parts. Not for me I guess. In regards to the title of this review, this debut combines the death metal riffage and the blast-happy sensibilities of grind. Featuring members of Cannibal Corpse and Album) Creation, the expectations for Hateplow were relatively high.
As a side project of sorts, would this be a rousing success or looked upon as a waste of time Six Feet Under, I'm looking at you? Thankfully with a few minor exceptions, their first offering delivers the goods. Aside from the riffing sounding similar to Fine Art of Murder Born With Both - Hateplow - Everybody Dies (Cassette Malevolent, Hateplow sounding nothing like the aforementioned.
Crazy fucking Larry Hawke does an outstanding job on the drums, preferring blasts but occasionally utilizing slower beats and kicking out the double bass to great effect. Unfortunately, he passed before this album was released. Rob Barrett and Phil Fasciana are excellent as always with their work, using both faster and slower riffs that lean heavily towards thrash.

As you can already tell, much of this band relies on the existence and notorious instability of Malevolent Creation. Although the charm that makes MC albums worth listening to isn't represented here. Some worthwile humor replaces what this album lacks musically.
There is even room for the occasional goofy scripted "screw up playing" that made S. The songs blend together after a while and it gives off the impression that the entire album was written and cut in under an hour. If you're a die hard Malevolent Creation or Cannibal Corpse fan and can find this for a couple bucks, you might want to get a couple listens out of it. I first heard this cd 6 years ago. Now that I listen to it again, it's that much better! The vocals are good and the drumming is solid The guitars are ok, but the best part are the palm-muted breakdowns that are in a few songs.
Best example, either Crackdown or Ass to Mouth Rescusitation.
