BROKEN HOPE have released a sick new 360 degree video for their latest track “The Meek Shall Inherit Shit” premiering at Explicitly Intense.com, here.
Explore unique perspectives of the extreme and incredible art of Wes Benscoter and experience a kaleidosphere of death metal misanthropy at every turn in this all new interactive video.
While much of the album pays tributes to John Carpenter’s classic The Thing and John W. Campbell Jr’s short story Who Goes There (heed the title track “Mutilated and Assimilated” and brutal instrumental “Beneath Antarctic Ice”) The lyrics behind “The Meek Shall Inherit Shit” were actually inspired by the true horrors observed in the real world.
“The Meek Shall Inherit Shit” is a premonitory message about the increasingly irreversible dangers of global pollution. Guitarist and songwriter Jeremy Wagner further explains: “The Meek Shall Inherit Shit is a song I’ve been wanting to write lyrically for some time. I’m an environmentalist–a guy who considers environment, rather than heredity, as the primary influence on the development human beings. Homo sapiens are living in a shitpile. We constantly foul our nest, we are killing the planet, and we cause up to 2,000 extinctions every year. Look, I don’t want to get all hippy and political here. I just love the natural world so much and I hate what’s being done to it. It fucking pisses me off! And you can hear my anger in the lyrics and the music of this track.”
BROKEN HOPE once again tapped director Tommy Jones for the making of this 360° clip who also directed the lyric video for the album title track, where he incorporated live footage of BROKEN HOPE in Berlin with storyboards by illustrator Mark Rudolph. Watch the lyric video here:

BROKEN HOPE will release their seventh studio album, Mutilated and Assimilated June 23, 2017. Decibel Magazine calls Mutilated and Assimilated “…death metal wonderfully devoid of artifice and filler, packed with songs that drive to a finish without stopping for one second and never engage in useless pleasantries…” New Noise Magazine states “Mutilated and Assimilated sounds impressively fresh, and it may go down as one of the best death metal albums of the year.”
Produced by Scott Creekmore, Mutilated and Assimilated will be released in the following album formats: Limited Edition CD+DVD Digipak in North America, Special Edition CD+DVD Digipak in Europe, and digital & streaming versions available on all the major outlets worldwide!
