Horror aficionados BROKEN HOPE pay tribute John Carpenter’s 1982 classic, The Thing with the worldwide premiere of title track, “Mutilated and Assimilated.”
Directed by Tommy Jones, and featuring illustrated storyboards by Mark Rudolph; the infectious essence of brutal death metal details the decimation of the living in this gripping audio-visual recount.
Check out the official video for the track “Mutilated and Assimilated” below.
Guitarist Jeremy Wagner comments: “As you watch and hear, the story of a monstrous alien thawed out of Antarctic ice unfolds in pure horror with a death metal soundtrack. The video was directed by Tommy Jones, who uniquely wove in BH concert footage from Berlin with incredible storyboards by the great Mark Rudolph. Mark Rudolph worked hard to create these amazing storyboards–much like legendary artist Mike Ploog did for the original movie. Huge thanks to all our fans for waiting patiently for the new BH album. We hope you enjoy it! And remember: Only Death Is Real When Man Is the Warmest Place to Hide.”
