HATE ETERNAL have announced that Hannes Grossmann will replace Chason Westmoreland on their North American tour with label mates MISERY INDEX and BEYOND CREATION. Chason has chosen to leave the band due to important family matters.

The German drum progeny (ALKALOID, BLOTTED SCIENCE, ex-OBSCURA, ex-NECROPHAGIST) comments on this collaboration: "I am absolutely stoked to play with HATE ETERNAL!", says Hannes Grossmann. "They are an iconic and genre-defining band in death metal. Erik and J.J. are phenomenal players and great guys. We have been rehearsing all week at Mana Recording Studios, and it has been amazing thus far. I worked really hard to play these songs the right way and I cannot wait to finally present them to fans across North America. See you on tour!"

Erik Rutan continues: "Hannes is an incredible drummer, amazing person, and absolute professional. We had the fortune of touring with OBSCURA many years ago and got to witness first hand the kind of pedigree Hannes is as a musician. Rehearsal is going great and we could not be more excited about getting out there on our first headlining tour for our new album 'Infernus' with Hannes behind the kit! Hope to see you all out there on the road!"

HATE ETERNAL will be touring in support of their crushing new album 'Infernus' in full. The full-length has been released worldwide on the 21st of August. The album is streaming in its entirety at this link:

'Infernus' has been recorded in Erik Rutan's Mana Recording Studio. Regarding the recording bassist/vocalist commented: "We are ecstatic about how the recording for our new album has been coming out. We have worked very hard on crafting these songs to reflect our path, from our past to the present, and the journey of HATE ETERNAL and its members. Writing this album was a long and arduous process. It took a tremendous amount of determination, blood, and sweat to bring this all to fruition. We're super proud of what we've accomplished creatively, and excited at the prospect of releasing what we feel is our most powerful HATE ETERNAL material to date. Now it is time to bring this all to life! This will be an album our listeners and supporters will truly appreciate. It represents an important milestone for me personally since 15 years ago both HATE ETERNAL began recording its first album and Mana Recording Studios was born. We cannot wait for you to hear this album!"
