Broken Hope Unleashes “The Docking Dead” Static Video Today

September 12th, 2013 by Megan Washington

Today, Broken Hope are pleased to premiere the brand new static video for the band’s track ‘The Docking Dead’, cut from their upcoming album Omen Of Disease, out October 1 on Century Media Records (September 30th in Europe). The static video can be viewed here—but beware before you listen! This content of this track is insane… literally. Harvesting explicit body parts to create zombies? Leave it to Broken Hope to conjure the horror!

BROKEN HOPE guitarist Jeremy Wagner says: “I began penning words for Broken Hope 25 years ago, and my approach has never changed… I still create the most horrific, insane, and repulsive lyrics my mind can conjure. ‘The Docking Dead’ is no exception to my long list of nasty flash-fiction. Many of my ideas start with a “what if” scenario. In the case of ‘The Docking Dead’ I asked myself, “what if a Re-Animator-like scientist attempted to harvest human foreskins from male corpses using an experimental re-agent and growth hormone–and in doing so, he started a zombie apocalypse?” That’s all I needed to write the lyrics to this song. Zombies, dead penile tissue, death metal, and grind are what’s in store when you hear–and read–our newest preview song, ‘The Docking Dead.’

While on YouTube, take a listen to the band’s other available track, ‘The Flesh Mechanic’, here:

Omen Of Disease will be released in Europe on September 30 and on 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. Omen Of Disease marks the first new music from BROKEN HOPE in 15 years. The album was recorded between two studios: drums at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI, with engineer Chris Wisco (LAZARUS A.D., JUNGLE ROT, ORIGIN, GORGASM), and the rest at Mercenary Digital Studios in Zion, IL, with engineer Scott Creekmore (BROKEN HOPE, DIRGE WITHIN, LIVIDITY).

Presuming you still have a hefty appetite after reading about experimental usage of foreskins, feast your eyes on the announcement of BROKEN HOPE’s upcoming metal burger, debuting at their official listening party taking place on Sunday, September 29th at The Original Kuma’s Corner in Chicago, IL (2900 W. Belmont Ave). Listen to Omen Of Disease in its entirety and take a bite out of the BROKEN HOPE Burger, joining the long line of other monumental metal burgers available at Kuma’s Corner!
