is a death metal
band, formed by Blake Harrison, Mark Sloan, and Waldo, a 21-year-old Congo African Grey Parrot
. Hatebeak is the only band to have an "avian" vocalist.
The band members do not use their last names on their releases "for the mystery".
Hatebeak also does not tour so as to not torture the bird.
Hatebeak is strictly a studio project with unintelligible lyrics and no melody.
They are currently signed to Reptilian Records.
Their sound has been described as "a jackhammer being ground in a compactor."
Aquarius Records magazine called Hatebeak "furious and blasting death metal".
Hatebeak made their second record with Caninus
, a band whose lead singer is two dogs.
Hatebeak's goal is to "raise the bar for extreme music".
