"100 Proof Hatred"

The show opener, local favorites, 100 PROOF HATRED, took the stage roughly around 9:30PM CST at The Rockstar Club in Fort Worth, Texas on this night of good metal vibes being given off by a fair sized crowd that was both hungry for their steady rounds of alcohol and an ever loving display of rockin' heavy music. 100 PROOF HATRED's frontman, Donovan, fitted with biker-style bandana on his head, full-length tattoo sleeves down both arms and one mean scowl, was more than spirited in the way he engaged the night's crowd with the demand that everyone in the room "get them horns up in the goddamn air".



100 Proof Hatred does not hide from the fact that they are incredibly influenced by the likes of legendary thrash/groove masters Pantera and the band wasted no time at all in grabbing the attention of everyone in the club with an all-out combined high-energy approach, working like true hardcore ass-kicking musicians, reeling off one rampaging song after the next, such as: 'Drunk On Blood', 'Reckoning' and 'Chrome Knuckles'. Dummer Chad Reed was locked in steady with bassist Jerry on a gritty, low-end crushing sound throughout the set, met head on with the impressively squealing twin guitar attack from Dave Lewis and Donnie "Crimy" Nall. 100 PROOF HATRED seemed to get stronger and meaner with each song they unleashed on everyone, demonstrating to all that they're keeping their form of uncompromising & brutal metal music simply just that: B-R-U-T-A-L. I estimated 100 Proof Hatred played for about forty-five minutes, not quite a full hour. I could have easily watched this band play twenty more songs, thanks in part largely to vocalist Donovan's compelling control over his audience and grim stage presence.

Bio

100 Proof Hatred formed in 2005, the bastard child of dozens of bands in the Fort Worth metal scene. Led by frontman Donvan Warren, a misfit titty-bar showman extrodinaire, with a unique voice and a more unique vision. The music is fast,heavy,detuned,slow...it is all that metal sounds like and nothing metal sounds like... "Play with some damn conviction!!!," thats our motto", says Donovan, "we try to get our music over by pure energy, we want them to know we believe every note !"

In 2009, 100 Proof Hatred left the smoky clubs of Dallas and Fort Worth to play in front of thousands, at the South Texas RockFest in San Antonio TX, with such acts as Adlers Appetite, Saxon, Axe and Queensryche.

100 Proof Hatred inspires honest-to-God old fashioned mosh pits(sometimes in clubs holding 79) Loud,rowdy fans are commonplace at Proof shows, expect a little contact if you get close! with the music comes the attitude! !
