BornBroken are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a mixture of death, thrash and groove metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "The Healing Powers Of Hate".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine death, groove, hardcore and thrash together to create a sound of their own with some technical and melodic elements being thrown into the riffing at times, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very old school and melodic sounding extreme metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking to add more variety to the recording.
Vocals are mostly growls that utilize elements of death metal, hardcore, groove and thrash metal along with some samples being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover violent, hateful and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion BornBroken are a very geat sounding hybrid of death metal, hardcore, thrash and groove metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Old News" "Control" "Bleed The Sky" and "The Healing Powers Of Hate". RECOMMENDED BUY.
