BROKEN HOPE
BROKEN HOPE
Grotesque Blessings
(The Plague / Hammerheart Records)
38:57min

Me coming from the school of well ummm... old school Death Metal know BROKEN HOPE. They have been around since 1990 and have many albums under their gross belt. Starting as a pure gore / grind / death / sludge band and developing into a technical gore-Death band. I personally prefer their early efforts. Vocalist Joe Ptacek gugles like no other on the scene, like a choking pig really. Brian Griffin (guitars & producer & owner of studio) still writes some razor sharp riffs but where this suffers is the dull, flat production. That just takes so much away, and leaves a lot wanted. To compare them I would say: MALEVOLENT CREATION, CANNIBAL CORPSE, OPPRESSOR (R.I.P.). I really do not like this "new" style but fans of technical Death Metal with a touch of gore will dig this.
