Hatebeak 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.[1] The band members do not use their last names on their releases "for the mystery".[citation needed] Hatebeak also does not tour so as to not torture the bird.[2] Hatebeak is strictly a studio project with unintelligible lyrics and no melody.[3] They are currently signed to Reptilian Records.

Their sound has been described as "a jackhammer being ground in a compactor."[4] Aquarius Records magazine called Hatebeak "furious and blasting death metal".[3] Hatebeak made their second record with Caninus, a band whose lead singer is two dogs.[3] Hatebeak's goal is to "raise the bar for extreme music".[3]
