It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours for death metal band Broken Hope.

Now it’s been announced that BH have been kicked off the ‘No Salvation’ tour by none other than Deicide vocalist/bassist Glen Benson. BH guitarist Jeremy Wagner has written a lengthy explanation of the events that have led to this situation through a Facebook post, which you can read below. READ MORE
Bloody-Disgusting has never shied away from bringing you some of the most intense and demented material when it comes to music. And that’s why we’re thrilled to bring you “The Docking Dead”, the brand new track from Chicago horror-inspired death metal band Broken Hope. The song comes from the band’s upcoming album Omen Of Disease, which promises to be one of the most brutal, vicious, devastating albums of the year. Head on below to get your face melted clean off.
Chicago death metal band Broken Hope has issued an update regarding their new album, which is their first release since 1999′s Grotesque Blessing. The band signed with Hard Impact Management earlier this year and states they will be committed to writing and touring, including being currently booked for the 2013 editions of Extremefest (Germany) and Maryland Death Fest.
The band issued the following official statement:
“We want to give you all a quick Broken Hope update before the New Year, and we have some exciting news! First, congratulations to Broken Hope’s own Shaun Glass on the birth of his first child: Maddux Burton Glass, born Dec 17, 2012. Maddux enters the world just before Christmas and just as Broken Hope is writing the new album!
Speaking of the new album, we can officially say that we’ve written 11 songs so far– and are still trucking along with more material. The new material is so ferocious, we jokingly sum up the vibe of the new music as ‘Reign In Bowels’ because it’s like someone took Slayer’s ‘Reign In Blood’ and mated that intensity and horror with the extremity and sickness of Broken Hope’s ‘Bowels of Repugnance’ album…It’s insanely heavy and unrelenting! That said, here’s a couple song titles we can release to you all– chew on these: ‘The Flesh Mechanic’ and ‘Give Me the Bottom Half.’ We can’t wait for you to hear ‘em all! Happy Holidays everyone!” READ MORE

“Deep beneath the Egyptian sands, an ancient and evil song written in hieroglyphics is discovered in the long lost and buried pyramid of the demonic pharaoh, Aknaseth. It is written, that if this song is performed for the world to hear, it will unleash the Apocalypse upon the world of man Satan will reign and grant immortality to the chosen. With the help of abominable Egyptologist, Helmut Hartkopff, nihilistic multibillionaire, Festus Baustone the Third will do whatever it takes to bring the song to life at any cost- even if his only daughter is to be sacrificed. Kirk Vaisto, dubbed the God of Guitar by his millions of fans, soon finds himself caught between the forces of divine good and monumental evil. Vaisto begins a musical journey that takes him from an unholy chapter in ancient Egyptian history to the very remains of the Holy Cross, to the concert stage, and beyond all this, to the very edge of Hell itself. Will Kirk give the performance of a lifetime and either deliver our world from evil or will he annihilate us all with the stroke of his hand? What will happen when Kirk Vasito strikes The Armageddon Chord?”
