Hatezero is a Midwest hard rock band hailing from South Bend, Indiana. The band originally formed in 2014 and recorded their first demo in 2015. During the first few years the quartet underwent several member changes until finally settling on the power trio including Adam Kronewitter aka Minkus (lead vocals, rhythm and lead gutars), Nick White (bass guitars, backing vocals), and Chad Martensen aka Spastic (drums, backing vocals). Hatezero independently produced and released their self-titled debut album on November 27, 2020 and it quickly became highly regarded by their fans and critics alike.
The bands influences range from Classic Rock (Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, Alice Cooper) to Grunge and Metal bands (Soundgarden, Pantera, Metallica) with even a bit of Funk and Alternative Rock tastes (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Clutch, Corrosion of Conformity, Faith No More). The band channels their passion to convert what they admire about those who have come before them into their own modern rock sound. Hatezero’s mix of classic rock and metal guitar riffs and solos are accompanied by a blend of softer melodic and hard driving, in your face vocals.
Hatezero played some of their earliest shows during Halloween so the band decided to add to their sound the spectacle of tribal and horror cosplay to deliver the ultimate live experience!
Currently a regional act in the midwest
