"This is now / How can I can change tomorrow if I can't change today? / This is now / If I control myself I control my destiny." So sings Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta on Hatebreed's new single "This is Now." When he's not hosting MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball," Jasta fronts the terrifyingly loud Connecticut band. Lyrically, Hatebreed promotes change above nihlism; unlike most of their contemporaries, the band's lyrics are halfway discernable above the brutal metallic assault.
