After the attempt to revive EUPHORIA, one of the most popular bands of Lviv death-scene of 90’s, Andriy ‘Ryba’ Polyak, the leader of D.HATE (full name DISTRICT HATE), started a new project in 2009. At the end of 2010 three band members, still without the name, started the work together. The search for the vocals lasted till early autumn and very ambitious, freshly founded band got started with creating new material. D.HATE had its first appearance in Lviv, Ukraine, in October 2010, on the Halloween day. In early days band shared the stage with bands like SADIST (ITA), VIRGIN SNATCH (POL), CRIONICS (POL) and others.

From the beginning of 2011 D.HATE is very active in performing at concerts and festivals. At the same time they prepare material for recording. In April 2011 the band delivered a blasting show at the ‘RUINATSIYA IX’ rock-festival. The materials from the festival became part of the concert video for the ‘Ghost’ single. Immediately after that, D.HATE enters the studio to record the material for their debut album ‘Game with Ghosts’.

From the beginning of 2011 D.HATE is very active on the stages. Numerous concerts and festivals were just a great announcement of their debut album ‘Game with Ghosts’, published by Metal Scrap Records in September 2011. In November 2011 the band starts the tour to support the album. D.HATE performs in Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary. In 2012 D.HATE continued with explosive performances at concerts and festivals, promoting their debut album. Just a year later the guys played at great SABATON (SWE) support show in Belgrade, Serbia. They also appeared at the stage with Eluveitie, Christ Agony, Dead Infection, etc. At this period Legacy, Terrorizer and other mass media wrote about D.HATE.

D.HATE entered studio again in 2014 and their second album L.I.F.E. (Look Into Fear’s Eye) is freshly recorded. All the work, in particular recording, mixing and mastering was done by Wojtek Wieslawski and Slawek Wieslawski at Hertz Studio, Poland. Release date and new label will be announced very soon.
