Chicago's masters of death fuckin' metal Broken Hope return with their seventh studio album Mutilated and Assimilated, a horrifyingly brutal yet catchy sonic massacre produced by Scott Creekmore and featuring cover artwork by Wes Benscoter (Bloodbath, Kreator, Slayer, Hypocrisy). Mutilated and Assimilated marks a notable step up from its predecessor uniting guttural vocals, devastating blast beats, bowel-ripping grooves, catchy riffs and highly melodic leads which fully showcase the band's technical superiority. Guitarist Jeremy Wagner owns the personal collection of the late Jeff Hanneman (Slayer). His guitars were used to record all rhythm tracks on this album. "We dedicate this album to the memory and legacy of Jeff Hannemann." Gatefold LP + CD edition.
