Thousand Points of Hate are carving their own niche in the murky underworld of UK heavy metal, with the promise of great things to come.
Formed in late 2002, Thousand Points of Hate - Simon Gordon (ex-Xentrix), Gordie Liu, Paul Le Huray and Nick Degnen - set out to produce uncompromising heavy metal with a modern edge. After a period of rehearsal and live work six tracks of original material were written and recorded in November 2003, and a deal was soon secured with Casket Records.
The result was “Scar to Mark the Day” (CSK029, mixed by Mark Mynett of Kill II This released 17th May 2004). The debut EP mixes heavy slabs of guitar with vocals that are in turns hard-edged and unashamedly melodic.
Following the release of "Scar to Mark the Day" the band continued with rehearsal and live work to support the EP and to also work on their first full length album. In July 2005 Simon had to relinquish his shouting role due to circumstances outside the band, so the band set out to find new members. In Sept 2005 Stace took up the role of shouting. This still left the band short of a guitarist so in June 2006 James joined the band for a short stint to then be replaced by full time member Stewey in Nov 2006.
Now back with a full compliment of band members work on new material has commenced and live work accompanied by new records are sure to follow.
