Album Notes
In 1995, five young aspiring musicians gathered together in the Bronx, NY. They were drawn to each other for two reasons: a love of heavy music and the disillusionment created by urban adolescence. Nick (guitar), UV (drums), Nando (guitar), Phil (vocals) and Jayson (bass) became known as Irate and established themselves as one of New York City's most brutal metal bands. Their music exemplified through sound and lyrics the harsh realities of growing up in a city (as well as a world) of apathy and indifference, a place where you had to scream to be heard.

Irate's first two releases, the EP "Burden of a Crumbling Society" and the full length "11:34" (recorded with current bassist Curtis Reis), quickly solidified them as a powerful metal act. The first chance for the band to prove their ability in a live setting came at Castle Heights in Queens, NY. The shows at this venue established a loyal fan base and garnered the attention of other
promoters and bands on the scene. As a result, Irate has also played the stages of CBGB's, LimeLight, Lamour's, The Downtown, Albany's Valentines and many more. The band has had the pleasure of supporting national acts such as Deicide, Overkill, Napalm Death, Death Angel, Hatebreed, Candiria and Nuclear Assault.

In late 2001, Irate embarked on their first overseas tour, headlining shows in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya in Japan. A year later the band found themselves on the road again, this time on a five country tour of Europe with stops in Belgium, Holland, England, France and Germany. Spring of 2004 saw the band as part of a package tour of Puerto Rico supporting Sworn Enemy with Billy Club Sandwich and EGH.

For the summer of 2004 the band has hit the studio to record their sophomore full length album. Those that have heard the new material have described it as intensely heartfelt and reminiscent of the myriad of influences on the band. The album will hopefully be released before the close of 2005.

Perfection from Irate...again.
What else do you expect from Irate but absolute perfection? There is nothing bad about this cd at all. These guys are the definition of brutality.


Loved every minute of this album, one of my best metal CD buys yet. Amazing, tight band, with such awesome musicianship, brutal as a baby in a blender, yet deep in such songs as I Remember and Depression. Just fuckin fantastic, much love from the UK - hardcore, say no more. Thanks to CD Baby for pushin' this shit too. PEACE!

This record called New York Metal,but you better trust me it will be World Wide Metal....amazingly endless sounds with strong vocal.

Yeah, good album baby!
I always loved the song vendetta, but was suprised by the rest of the album. Its not really hardcore, definitely new york metal! reminds me of testament for some reason, but it grew on me! Great riffs, arrangements etc there are some really catchy tunes on here, very musically accomplished too!
