Hatebreed was formed in 1993 in New Haven, Connecticut for the purpose of creating a "back to basics" hardcore band. They began by recording a three song demo and selling it to locals. Those three songs would eventually be released on a split seven inch with New York's Neglect in 1995. They followed that up with the highly acclaimed EP Under the Knife in 1996, and the following year released what many fans consider the definitive '90s album of the genre, Satisfaction is the Death of Desire on Victory Records, then the home of some of the biggest bands in metalcore. Satisfaction sold more copies than any other debut in the history of the record company.
A constant touring schedule pushed them beyond the boundaries of the hardcore punk scene, and tours with national metal bands such as Slayer, Deftones, Entombed and Napalm Death brought them to the attention of many non-hardcore/metalcore fans. These influences were apparent on the band's next two releases, 2002's Perseverance, and especially 2003's The Rise of Brutality.
After the release of The Rise of Brutality, the band took part in the 2004 The Unholy Alliance tour in Europe with Slayer, Slipknot and Mastodon. In June, 2006, Hatebreed embarked on a European tour which included a Main Stage performance at the Download Festival in Donnington, U.K. Immediately following this European tour, they were a Main Stage performer for the 2006 Ozzfest Tour.
The band's latest album, Supremacy was released in August, 2006, their first through Roadrunner Records, featuring new guitarist Frank Novinec (who'd previously spent time playing with Ringworm, Terror, and Integrity). Jasta described it as an "all-out onslaught of completely adrenaline-charged, in-your-face brutality".
Hatebreed still maintains tight connections to the hardcore and metalcore communities, evidenced by the lineup for the their 10 year anniversary show at Toad's Place on November 25 and 26, 2005 in New Haven: Neglect, One 4 One, Irate, and reunions by All Out War and Skarhead.
Aside from his frontman duties, Jasta is also the host of the MTV2 television program "Headbangers Ball" and runs Stillborn Records, home of Subzero, Full Blown Chaos, and Jasta's other side project's include icepick featuring lord ezec/danny diablo(skarhead,Frank 3gun(terror),zuess(acclaimed music producer), and derek kerswilll and also the band kingdom of sorrow which at this point features kurt weindstrem(Crowbar,Down and superjoint ritual) and also jamey jasta.
