Chicago-based death metallers BROKEN HOPE wrapped the video for 'The Flesh Mechanic' over the weekend. in Los Angeles, CA. They have issued the following update:
"Broken Hope's lyrical imagery has always been based on horror and repulsive subject matter. Therefore, with this only being their second official video (after 'Into The Necropshere'), Broken Hope again delivers a video that promises to be 100% horror and gore themed, like you've never seen! Coming soon..."
Broken Hope will release their new album, Omen Of Disease, on September 30th in Europe and October 1st in North America via Century Media Records.
The album track 'The Docking Dead' is streaming below. Guitarist Jeremy Wagner states: "I began penning words for Broken Hope 25 years ago, and my approach has never changed... I still create the most horrific, insane, and repulsive lyrics my mind can conjure. ‘The Docking Dead’ is no exception to my long list of nasty flash-fiction. Many of my ideas start with a "what if" scenario. In the case of ‘The Docking Dead’, I asked myself, 'what if a Re-Animator-like scientist attempted to harvest human foreskins from male corpses using an experimental re-agent and growth hormone - and in doing so, he started a zombie apocalypse?' That's all I needed to write the lyrics to this song. Zombies, dead penile tissue, death metal, and grind are what's in store when you hear - and read - our newest preview song, ‘The Docking Dead'."
Broken Hope recently released another new song from the upcoming Omen Of Disease. The track, entitled ‘Ghastly’, is available for free download now at the official Century Media website. Head here

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 features 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).
