Hatebreed was formed in 1994 in Connecticut. They began by recording a three song demo and selling it at local shows. Two of 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 7"/cassette EP "Under the Knife" in 1996 and went out on tour around the east coast/midwest with the UKHC band Voorhees. The
Tours with national hard rock & metal bands such as Motorhead, Danzig, Slayer, Deftones, Entombed and Sepultura influenced their music and 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 Unholy Alliance tour in Europe with Slayer, Slipknot and Mastodon. In 2005 they continued to tour and In June, 2006, Hatebreed went on an extensive European tour which included a performance at the Download Festival in Donnington, UK. Immediately following this European tour, they played the main stage at Ozzfest 2006 alongside DragonForce, Lacuna Coil, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, and co-headliners System of a Down.
The band's fourth album, Supremacy, was released in August, 2006, their first through Roadrunner Records, featuring new guitarist Frank Novinec (who had 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".
On September 13, 2006, former guitarist Lou "Boulder" Richards committed suicide at the age of 35; he had played on 1997's Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire and left the band in 2002.
