Here’s your brutal Monday night ALL DAY TUESDAY freebie: Broken Flesh is letting HM readers download their new single, “Cries of the Dead,” for free. The song comes from what will be a self-titled release, scheduled for sometime in 2015. Jacob Mathes, vocalist for the band, spoke to HM about the song and how you can help get that album out of the door:

Hello! From all of us at Broken Flesh, the year 2015 will bring about the most brutal music that we have ever put together as a band so far. We hope you enjoy this new song, “Cries of the Dead,” which is only a small taste of what’s to come in the new album.

To help raise money for this new album, we have set up a GoFundMe campaign for all who feel led to help us. We ask that you prayerfully consider this, and if you do feel lead to help, you may do so by following the attached link. God bless you all and take care.

To help fund or take part, you can visit the GoFundMe campaign and give as you can or as needs meet. Either way, download the song and lookout for them in your town. Highly recommended.

Download it while you can!

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
