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.
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 theOMEN 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.
