That's a serious question that I know will bring a smart ass response (not necessarily from you, but from someone).

Not trying to be a dink or start an argument, but for what they are and what they strive to be, I don't think you can say Hatebreed is "sub-par". Their last 2 albums, sure. Subpar for them.

And again, not trying to stir up the poop, what are they "sub-par" in comparison to? Keep in mind their genre.

I'm definitely not expecting "epic" or "atmospheric" from them. And while I'll admit I'm not super well versed in hardcore, there's a lot of hardcore bands that I think are doing more interesting things and making angry hardcore.
