Chicagoan death metallers Broken Hope have some new blood.
The band’s formally added bassist Diego Soria (known for his work with Disgorge) and lead guitarist Matt Szlachta (formerly of Chimaira) to their lineup.
Says co-founder and guitarist Jeremy Wagner:
“I’m far beyond delighted with our new members — Diego and Matt. Both of these guys are old friends of mine, and both are amazing musicians of the highest order. Diego’s history with extreme death-metallers Disgorge and Matt’s contributions to Chimaira, bring a new level of professionalism and brutality to Broken Hope.
“Moreover, Diego and Matt possess a true love for death metal and grind. Their passion for extreme metal was something their predecessors lacked — and it’s a most-welcome adrenaline-shot that Broken Hope needed badly. See you all in 2015 — stronger and sicker than ever!”
