Hate Dept. is an American industrial/punk rock band, formed in 1991 by Steven Seibold.
Seibold is a multi-instrumentalist who writes, records and releases Hate Dept. albums with minimal outside help. He formed Hate Dept. in 1991 in reaction to fickle 'electro' audiences and antipathy towards live electronic bands, taking his sound in a more punk direction.
Hate Dept.'s debut album in 1994, Meat.Your.Maker, appeared in Rolling Stone's Top 10 alternative albums, while Seibold was nominated 'Best New Talent' by Keyboard magazine. Omnipresent, the second release by the group, was reviewed in Rolling Stone and Alternative Press and spent eight weeks on the CMJ RPM chart, peaking at #7
BELLHEAD fast tracked their rise to prominence with the release of their debut EP, ‘Unicorn Bones’ in 2020. Crossing over fan bases and genres from the post-punk, gothic, industrial, alternative and metal scenes, ‘Unicorn Bones’ opened many doors for the band as they started to reach the mainstream with articles and reviews in such high profile media outlets as Post-Punk.com, The Deli Magazine’s featured Band of the Month, Divide and Conquer, Bass Magazine, Whitelight/Whiteheat, Breathing the Core, Chicago Music Guide, and Music Eternal’s Band of the Month.
