From The Metro’s website:
“Brought forth in 1998, Broken Hope was the brainchild of guitarist/chief-lyricist-songwriter, Jeremy Wagner. Though Jeremy was still attending High School, his passion and drive for bringing the band out of obscurity was apparent from the start. In 1989 and 1990, Broken Hope recorded two demo tapes which landed them a deal with the underground label, Grind Core Records. In 1991, Broken Hope spewed forth their debut album, “Swamped In Gore”, which subsequently launched the band out of the underground and into the mainstream. “Swamped In Gore” was not only ahead of its time musically, but it was also the first digitally-recorded death-metal album yet again showing the forward thinking of the then fledgling act.
By 1993, Broken Hope broke away from their first record label and was immediately approached by Metal Blade Records and released four albums with the label. The first four albums are stellar examples of the fury and sheer brutality possessed by Broken Hope, and is also the albums that etched Broken Hope’s place in death-metal history. The first decade for the band was filled with non-stop writing, touring and constant visibility with each album. Broken Hope’s music has received praise from bands such as Slipknot, DevilDriver, The Black Dahlia Murder, Dying Fetus and many more. By the end of the ‘90’s, Broken Hope produced and released their fifth album: 1999’s “Grotesque Blessings”. After North American and European, BH founder Jeremy Wagner cleaned house and put Broken Hope into “metal hibernation” in 2002.
On January 20th 2010, original Broken Hope vocalist Joe Ptacek committed suicide. He was only 37 years old. Before his death, Ptacek met with Jeremy Wagner and Shaun Glass and discussed the resurrection of Broken Hope. With Ptacek’s death, Wagner and Glass took time off to reconsider their next moves.
In 2012, Jeremy Wagner and Shaun Glass resurrected Broken Hope and vowed to make the band a full-time monster – forever. Broken Hope’s high-intensity live offerings received top-praise, and confirmed that not only was Broken Hopeback, they were also more rabid than ever.The band went on to perform at the 2013 editions of Extremefest (Germany) and Maryland Death Fest to stellar reviews which leads us to a new chapter in the annals of Broken Hope…
In 2013, Broken Hope put pen to paper and signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. Their sixth album, “Omen of Disease”, is slated for an October 2013 release. Broken Hope has absolutely delivered their sickest, most ferocious creation to date with “Omen of Disease”…and they’re just getting started. ”
