The band weighs in on the FOR THE LIONS “complete my album” plan:
HATEBREED also recently completed a video for Slayer’s South of Heaven classic, “Ghosts of War.” Directed by LIVE DOMINANCE director, Kevin Custer, the video is the first to feature return of guitar player Wayne Lozinak.

FOR THE LIONS, to be released on E1 Music (formerly KOCH Records), is the follow-up to the band’s #1 Billboard charting DVD, LIVE DOMINANCE (released September of 2008) which left fans “Picking their teeth up off the floor” and “sounding immense” according to Outburn.
