Broken Hope is an amazing death metal band from Chicago, which apparently never got their due, considering that there isn't one topic devoted to them on this thread???

Anyways, they released five albums. I consider Swamped in Gore to be their best. The tracks are catchy, and the vocalist is spot on with that album. The production is raw, but there are no flaws and everything can be heard.

The Bowels of Repugnance is also in the vein of their debut, and had some excellent tracks, including the classic Hobo Stew. I'm not sure if it is me or the album, but the production seemed to be kind of weak, and worse than Swamped in Gore???

Their following three albums, Loathing, Repulsive Conception, and Grotesque Blessings, had a shift in direction, and I definitely prefer their old sound. But, there are some people who insist they just got better with each album.

I hope there are some other fans of this band on here. If not, you need to check out their first two albums

These guys are really underrated. Swamped in Gore is pretty sick, but they slowly became worse... kinda like Internal Bleeding.

lol they aren't on MS

Edit: I suggested them so vote to get them added

Pyro did you think the production was worse on Bowels of Repugnance than Swamped in Gore, or is it just me?

Yeah it's much more muffled than Swamped in Gore. Still tolerable though

I agree with the view that their best album was "Swamped In Gore" and they went downhill after that. I won't even bother with any of the other releases.

Yea I thought it was kind of like Here in After vs Dawn of Possession in production, but it always blows my mind when a band has worse production on the second album.

Another Broken Hopeian! With a release like their debut, I figured there would have to be more than two fans on this site. :-P

Broken Hope - (ostentatious?)Studio Update.

Quote:
As of today, ALL the guitar work for the new BH album is finished! After weeks of precise detail to every brutal note, Jeremy Wagner (Official) and Chuck Wepfer have tracked 4 rhythm tracks per song, plus all the leads and harmonies where called for.

*No hype, no bullshit, no arrogance...BROKEN HOPE is confident in saying: "For ALL death metal fans, we sincerely believe that riff-for-riff, hook-for-hook, song-by-gory-song, this new album is definitely BROKEN HOPE's FINEST hour!!!"

As you will all hear in the near future, this new BH album promises to be a pummeling journey of relentless guitar and bass riffing, sick drums, and massive vocals--from start-to-finish.

I listened to Swamped in high school on my wind-up phonograph, lol

They were sick, but i sort of lost interest in them after that because I went a different direction, too, with music. Studied a lot of jazz and classical at the time.

Would love to hear that album again for old times' sake.

I think this band just lacks some of the dynamism that distinguishes really good death metal bands from the rabble. That said, so do Massacre and Malevolent Creation, and they're both pretty big. I also doubt Obituary would be where they are if it wasn't for James Murphy's lead work on Cause of Death.
