Hailing from the tiny island of Malta in the heart of the Mediterranean, Deathcore act Haine was established in the fall of 2017. The band's mission statement was simple; forgo all preconceived notions and pre-existing scene stereotypes to create their own brand of extreme music. Haine's sound was moulded by influences from a vast variety of musical genres, resulting in a deeply layered sound combining heavy grooves and crushing breakdowns, punctuated by melodic overtones.
Haine released their first three singles, 'This Darkness', 'Our Own Messiahs' and 'I, Empyreal' in 2018 with the intention of showcasing the band's sound. These were soon followed by a fourth single and first music video, 'Breeding Falsity' in 2019.
At the end of 2019, the band started planning and pre-production for its debut self-titled EP release. The EP was recorded by David Depasquale at SpineSplitter Studio in the summer of 2020, and its first single 'Burn it Down' was released in the November that followed. Its accompanying music video was met with high praise, with Deathcore giants Shadow of Intent joining the fold by reacting to it on a live stream. Following this, the EP was released on the 6th of January, 2021, with excellent feedback coming from the local scene. This release also allowed us to start networking beyond our shores, on the international scene.
During 2023, Haine will also be recording their first full-length album, which will consist of 10 tracks. The band is currently handling pre-production prior to entering the studio, and the album will be a step forward in the musical trajectory of Haine’s sound.
