Broken Hope : Offers New Track 'GHASTLY' for FREE Download via Century Media Records
Everyone loves free music, including BROKEN HOPE! Today, the band is sharing a brand new track with fans, cut from their upcoming album Omen Of Disease, out October 1 on Century Media Records. The track, entitled 'Ghastly', is available for FREE DOWNLOAD now at the official Century Media website. Head to this link to download 'Ghastly' now.
BROKEN HOPE guitarist Jeremy Wagner says: "I'm really excited to have 'Ghastly' released as a free download for the world - our gift to you. I have to say, 'Ghastly' is one of my favorite tracks from the OMEN OF DISEASE album! As I wrote the music on this song, I took riffs I'd been saving for a while, combined them with new death metal ideas, and sewed the whole thing together to make for one of our sickest and most relentless musical tracks. Lyrically, I wrote about an unfortunate person who was born so physically repulsive from head-to-toe/inside-and-out, that the mere sight of the hideous form could almost blind and nauseate you. Like a Gorgon, but even more horrific. Hence the line: 'Ghastly...a horrid blight upon the eyes.' With 'Ghastly' and 'The Flesh Mechanic', I think these tunes will give everyone a good idea of what to expect from the entire OMEN OF DISEASE album. Enjoy!"
Omen Of Disease will be released October 1 in North America on Century Media Records, with cover artwork painted by world-renowned horror artist Wes Benscoter, best known for his work with SLAYER, CATTLE DECAPITATION, AUTOPSY and KREATOR. Omen Of Disease marks the first new music from BROKEN HOPE in 15 years. The album was recorded between two studios: drums at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI, with engineer Chris Wisco (LAZARUS A.D., JUNGLE ROT, ORIGIN, GORGASM), and the rest at Mercenary Digital Studios in Zion, IL, with engineer Scott Creekmore (BROKEN HOPE, DIRGE WITHIN, LIVIDITY).
