Ahead of the release of upcoming eighth album Weight Of The False Self next month, Hatebreed have just unveiled the record's crushing opener, Instinctive (Slaughterlust).

Accompanied by a Justin Reich-directed video, Instinctive (Slaughterlust) follows the release of the title-track in September, and sees the Connecticut hardcore titans at their ferocious best.

"In a fight for survival, which a lot of us are right now, we must channel our inner animal and trust our instincts," explains frontman Jamey Jasta.

Meanwhile, of the LP as a whole, drummer Matt Byrne teases, "There’s no shortage of beefy riffs and adrenaline-fuelled drums on this record. I’m proud to say that we will consistently provide a soundtrack to which you can mosh in your living room and destroy your apartment."

Weight Of The False Self is due out on November 27 via Nuclear Blast.
