Broken Hope has revealed the title of their 6th studio release as ‘Omen of Disease’. The album title – created by chief-lyricist, Jeremy Wagner – is also an actual album track, which marks the first official Broken Hope “title track” since their 1991 debut album, ‘Swamped in Gore’. ‘Omen of Disease’ is slated for a worldwide release in late summer 2013 via Century Media Records.

Jeremy Wagner comments about this upcoming release: “Some time ago, a festering death metal prophecy indicated something sick and brutal was coming back from the dead. The malignant signs became evident when Broken Hope first resurrected from the grave and then went on tour. A more sinister foreboding followed when Broken Hope wrote a new death metal album for the world to hear. Today, I’m a harbinger, here to alert everyone of a ‘death metal omen’ that is upon us… I speak of the new Broken Hope album, ‘Omen of Disease.’ The album title itself reeks of a musical offering that is nothing short of gruesome. ‘Omen of Disease’ will be released to infect everyone worldwide this Summer. I promise: this death metal album is a most savage, feral, pestilential, and lethal creation. You’ve been warned…”

‘Omen of Disease’ was recorded between two studios: drums were exclusively recorded at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI with engineer Chris Wisco (Lazarus A.D., Jungle Rot, Origin, Gorgasm), and the remaining bulk of the album was completed at Mercenary Digital Studios in Zion, IL with engineer Scott Creekmore (Broken Hope, Dirge Within, Putrid Pile, Lividity).
