"A Band called HateFX"

One of the most impressive and fresh sounding bands I've seen in a while, HateFX, have been around for less than a year and are already shaking things up in Fresno. I've talked to friends that told me they have already opened up for bands like Unwritten Law and also that they have one of the cleanest sounds around, I'm studying to be a journalist so I have done my share of investigation, they already have played at the famoues Whisky a Go Go and also are recording an EP that is coming out this summer 07.. pretty impressive resume for such a new act, the websites that I found were http:// www.hatefx.com and http://myspace.com/hatefx . I thought this could be interesting for young people to go check the local buzz and the hype about this new band.

The Holy Frail (CD March 2009)
Via Obscura (EP 2007)



HATEFX portrays metal with a distinctive factorization of elements, a mix of solid grooves, versatile sonic textures and sequences which linked together with effective songwriting are the offering from the hard-hitting metal band from Fresno, CA.

the band has shared national act bills with the likes of Static X, Exodus, In this Moment, Five Finger Death Punch, Drowning Pool, Helmet, Kittie, Prong, Bury Your Dead, Dragonlord, Unwritten Law, Otep, Ankla, In Vitro, Adema, among others, playing already 2 times in the Whisky a Go Go and rocking crowds of over 1,300 souls!.

Following the excellent response to their locally acclaimed first EP “Via Obscura“ and a couple of endorsement deals, HateFX's first full length album was completed "The Holy Frail",features guest musicians from California, Stockholm (Sweden) and South America. The record is their most elaborated material yet! and it's available through all major online stores (iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, Napster,etc).

HateFX started with G (Ex-Dogma, Chile) and Dan (ex-The Council, Sacramento, CA), both highly recognized bands... Merging fan bases and working on a well rounded concept and streamlined tunefulness that is less present in the genre nowadays the band has managed to attract more listeners that look beyond the typical metal hybrids. HateFX also understands the importance of liveshows and has developed a quite elaborated act that includes custom made stage banners, props and impact lighting to give the right ambience to their live performances.

H8FX's frontman, G, was the co-founder of “Dogma” one of the most recognized Chilean metal bands,his experience includes 4 studio albums, 6 videos with regular airplay on MTV LA and album of the month recognition by Headbangers Ball MTVLA among other achievements.
Shortly after the band got together, Dogma signed record deals with major label distro, EMI and Sony Music with heavy promotion and support.
Dogma's combined record sales surpassed 9,800 copies in a country where the population is only 15M. G played with Dogma for over 10 years,
culminating the band's career in late 2005 because of personal differences. Dan,(ex-"The Council") Sacramento band with substantial experience and recognition in the circuit had shared the stage with Fear Factory, Slayer also adding the know-how component to the CA scene;
completing the lineup with Jaymz (ex-Dredful Etiquette) bringing the subsonic waves to the HateFX powerhourse and Jeff, who takes the live show to the next
level with mad control of props and live sensory devices: HateFX comes to life in the live circuit.

HATEFX's high-intensity framework of sonic textures and grabbing musical experience cannot be overlooked. The material has been described by specialized rock press to feature accessible thrash riffs executed with a surgeons precision along with full bodied sonic layers and the ability
to reproduce these arrangements on their live performances with razor sharp accuracy.

The band continues to build a solid following in California, strategically planning their live appearances and locking in RaginPit Tour as one of the local headliners for Northern CA. This year H8FX is ready to tour supporting their album which will have them storming a number of important venues this year...
