    The Connecticut-based band have truly outdone themselves. [Feb 2013, p.92]

    Musically, Hatebreed sticks with the blueprints that they used to build previous outings like Satisfaction is the Death of Desire and Rise of Brutality, but there's an impressive sense of workmanship to Divinity of Purpose that suggests a steady diet of more traditional metal.

    Older, wiser, with more fire in their bellies than they've shown in years, this hardcore mainstay finally has its bite back.

    It's not going to impress those that irrationally expect every release to be a mind-blowing exercise in progression and experimentation. On the other hand, it should impress long-time fans and satiate their desire for no-frills, in your face music.

    Over six albums in nearly 20 years, Connecticut's Hatebreed have yet to deliver a record that sounds different from the last. [Feb 2013, p.107]

    Hatebreed are well practiced af unwavering ferocity. However this album peaks almost immediately, and coasts on the same intensity for its entire duration. If you like Hatebreed, you'll like this album. If not, it won't do anything to change your mind. Collapse
