New Haven, Conn.'s Hatebreed doesn't do ballads — unless — in death-metal speak — a ballad constitutes a blitzing barrage of doom-laden heaviness, with head-banging riffs, demon-possessed vocals and such cold-blooded titles as “Everyone Bleeds Now.” One of the most chilling genre extremists this side of Slayer, this eardrum-crushing collective has used its straightforward approach to musical rage to achieve a loyal base of thrash-hungry followers. After releasing a covers album, “For the Lions,” earlier this year honoring its influences (the Misfits, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies and Metallica), Hatebreed is set to perform at the National in support of its new self-titled full-length Thursday, Nov. 12, at 5:30 p.m. $20-$23.
