Hate Eternal: King of All Kings
Artist: Hate Eternal
Title: King of All Kings
Product Type: VINYL LP
Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. King of All Kings was the second album by the St. Petersburg, Florida-based death metal band Hate Eternal. The album was released on September 16, 2002 on Earache Records, and like their debut it was produced by the band's frontman Erik Rutan (formerly of Morbid Angel). The release was followed by a whirlwind of international touring to promote King of All Kings, including a noted video on MTV2's Headbanger's Ball for the single, "Powers That Be". Bassist/co-vocalist Jared Anderson left the group soon after due to an admitted drug problem. South Florida musician Randy Piro quickly stepped up to the plate as Jared's replacement in the group, and the band pressed on.
