Broken Hope

Broken Hope is an American death metal band that was founded in 1988. There were known as an accomplished mid-paced style death metal band with low-pitched gore vocals. As a band, they spanned roughly twelve years, recording five albums between 1991 and 1999.

The core of Broken Hope formed by Joe Ptacek (vocals), Jeremy Wagner (guitar), Brian Griffin (guitar), and Ryan Stanek (drums) scored a deal with the then-fledging Grindcore/RedLight Label and cut their debut album, "Swamped in Gore". Following that release, Metal Blade Records quickly signed the band and they released their second album, "The Bowels of Repugnance", in 1993. The band's third and fourth albums, "Repulsive Conception" and "Loathing", were released in 1995 and 1997, respectively. The band then switched to the Martyr label and their latest album, "Grotesque Blessing", was released in 1999.

Broken Hope disbanded in April 2002. Former members also include Shaun Glass, Sean Baxter, Larry DeMumbrum, and Ed Hughes.

According to Metal-archives.com, they reformed in 2007 with most of the Repulsive Conception/Loathing lineup.
