Reformed Chicago death metal act Broken Hope will issue album numero six this October, and the image in this post is that album’s cover art.
The album, Omen Of Disease, will feature a special guest appearance by Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder on the track “Rendered Into Lard.”
The cover painting for the CD was created by world-renowned horror artist Wes Benscoter.
“Wes Benscoter is one of my favorite artists, EVER,” explains guitarist Jeremy Wagner. “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.”
The band tapped James Murphy to mix and master the album at Murphy’s studio, Safehouse Production.
