ALBUM RESTLESS RELEASE: JUNE 1, 1999 REVIEW: MAY 22, 1999
Despite their apalling name, Hate Dept. are actually quite good. They attack the industrial genre from being more punk rock than metal. Sometimes the production sounds a bit flat and weak, but that is weighed up by the, compared to many bands in the genre, unusually talented song writing skills of the main band member Seibold. He should also have credit for hiring a trumpet player for the haunting ballad "Wait".
