With his bands Hatebreed, Icepick and Kingdom Of Sorrow, Jamey Jasta is well-known as one of the most intense vocalists in the metal/hardcore scenes. His reputation and skills has also got him guest appearances on songs for bands such as Winds Of Plague, Biohazard, Sepultura, Napalm Death and many others. This said, after years of hard work Jasta has released a solo effort simply titled Jasta; for which he had help from Nick Bellmore (Kingdom Of Sorrow, Toxic Holocaust) and Charlie Bellmore (Kingdom Of Sorrow).

Hardcore kings Hatebreed are midway though their “Decimation Of The Nation Tour”. They are headlining a bill that consists of Born Of Osiris, Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse and Unearth. With all of these bands on this tour it is truly the stuff metal dreams are made of. Recently I had the opportunity to catch Hatebreed on this tour and man was I impressed.

On June 22nd, 2008, Hardcore legends Hatebreed stopped through Toronto, Canada while co-headlining on the Jagermeister Music Tour. The Opera House was abuzz with happy fans and our Stoked interviewer Mitch Brown caught up with the legend himself, Jamey Jasta. Jamey had just woken up to do this interview, but was surprisingly astute. Once underway, Jamey talked about Hatebreed as well as his various other bands, project, record label and much more. What’s funny about the interview is that Mitch didn’t seem to mind the random cord dangling in his face throughout the interview… Oh well, at least Jamey got a kick out of it.
