Album: The Years of Harsh Truths and Little Lies
Release Date: May 18, 2018
BornBroken are no strangers to the metal scene. Their 2013 album, The Healing Powers of Hate was recognized by Revolver magazine as their album of the week. Their latest album The Years of Harsh Truths and Little Lies releases on May 18th, 2018 and I got the pleasure to give it an advanced listen.
I can tell you right from the start, these guys are heavy as hell. Big guitar riffs, heavy drums, chugging bass lines, and those deep, guttural screams of the lead singer show this band know exactly what they want and how they will take it. The title track features some excellent guitar work along with the quick metal riffs. It gives you a feel for the band and what to expect for the rest of the album.
“Whitewashed” surprised me from the start as the opening is spoken-word with the music gearing up for an intense start. This is a song I can feel a metal crowd going crazy for, mosh pits and circle pits becoming bigger and wilder.
Jason Rockman joined them for the song “Fight”. His unique sing/scream adds something new to the classic BornBroken heaviness, although it flows really well. The solo in this song is also very notable since it shows the band isn’t just heavy riff after heavy riff and that they can rip it up with the other notable metal legends.
This album is perfect for metalheads. I can see myself joining in a mosh pit (only for a short time, let’s be honest here) and getting thrown around with the best of them, all while slamming my head along with everyone else enjoying the intensity surrounding us.
Hey! I’m Carson and I like music and animals. Not only do I have a wide variety of music I enjoy but I also have a wide variety of animals. My style can go from your Top 40 songs right into songs that literally no one has ever heard of in a heartbeat and I’m okay with that. You can find me on the Internet enjoying memes and playing way too many video games for a ‘grown-up’.
