One of the heaviest bands around, Broken Flesh is making their presence known with their upcoming self-titled album. The Oklahoma City band has brought their brutal death metal to listeners for three albums now, with their newest arriving on September 4 from Luxor Records.

We spoke with vocalist Jacob Mathes about this newest track:

“We are getting close to the final release of our new self-titled album, and, once again, are excited to present to you another new track, ‘Cries Of The Dead.’ This song was inspired by the story of Saul (1 and 2 Samuel), his violence and disobedience to God. Each song on this album was lyrically written to reflect the most deranged of times, from the Old Testament to our own personal experiences, and how the creator of the universe is the same in all cases.”

Jam this one as loud as you can.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
