BROKEN HOPE Post “Omen Of Disease” Cover ArtTuesday, 30th July 2013
Reformed Chicago death metallers BROKEN HOPE have posted the cover art to their Omen of Disease comeback album, which can be viewed below. The album will be released in October via Century Media Records, with drums being laid down at Belle City Sound in Racine, Wisconsin with engineer Chris Wisco (LAZARUS A.D., JUNGLE ROT, ORIGIN, GORGASM), while the remaining instruments were tracked at Mercenary Digital Studios in Zion, Illinois with engineer Scott Creekmore (DIRGE WITHIN, PUTRID PILE, LIVIDITY).
Omen Of Disease will feature a special guest appearance by Trevor Strnad of THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER on the new BROKEN HOPE track “Rendered Into Lard.” The cover painting for the CD was created by world-renowned horror artist Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, CATTLE DECAPITATION, AUTOPSY, KREATOR).
Comments BROKEN HOPE guitarist Jeremy Wagner: “Wes Benscoter is one of my favorite artists, EVER. In my opinion, he’s right up there with Frank Frazetta, Michael Whelan and Todd Schorr.
“Ever since Benscoter did our Repulsive Conception and Loathing album covers, I’ve wanted to work with him again. I was beyond thrilled when Benscoter agreed to take on the Omen Of Disease project… and he nailed it! He’s captured the vile essence, putrid vibe, and apocalyptic, disease-laden horror of Omen Of Disease.
“Thank you for creating another masterpiece, Wes Benscoter.”
BROKEN HOPE tapped James Murphy (DEATH, OBITUARY, TESTAMENT) to mix and master “Omen Of Disease” at Murphy’s studio, Safehouse Production.
