Puckett seniorEarlier today we received an email from Ricky Puckett (In Darkest Dreams and former Broken Flesh). Ricky’s dad had a heart attack and the family could use a little help, read his message below:

Hello, My name is Ricky Puckett. I was formerly the vocalist of brutal death metal band, Broken Flesh, during the “Stripped, Stabbed, and Crucified” era of the band from 2010 to 2012. I was also the founder of Warclub Records and Warclub Radio (both of which are now defunct), and I am currently the vocalist of a project called In Darkest Dreams. My dad recently suffered a heart attack a couple weeks ago that was almost fatal. One of his arteries had 99% blockage and another artery was 100% blocked. The Dr’s were able to open up the one that was 99% blocked with a stent, but they said the damage to the one that was 100% blocked is too damaged to do anything about. He is currently not a candidate for bypass surgery. The Dr said that the extent of the damage to his arteries is too much that a bypass surgery wouldn’t do any good. Right now, we are down to just one option left on the table. He has to wear a Life Vest (which is basically an external defibrillator), but it’s not a permanent solution, because he has to wear it at all times and carry around a battery pack that’s hooked up to it at all times. He’s supposed to wear it for 3 months. After that, we’re hoping he can have an internal defibrillator put in him, but he has to go through the first 90 days with the life vest first. My parents don’t have any money. My dad is 78 years old and retired. My mom is 66 and works at Walmart, so they can’t afford the medical expenses resulting from his heart attack. Continue reading »

broken-flesh-bandOklahoma City-based death metal band Broken Flesh released their new self-titled album on Sept. 4th. via Luxor Records. Yesterday, the band has teamed up with Revolver Magazine to premiere their new music video ‘Consumed by Death.’ The video can also be seen below.

Vocalist Jacob says on the album: “For all of us in Broken Flesh, this album stands as the panicle of what we have to offer in sheer brutality. We set out to make the most whole hearted, gut wrenching composition of music and lyrics that we were given the ability to make… and that is what happened. In tracks such as ‘Hell’, ‘Ignominy’, and ‘Hate’, the lyrics reflect some of the hardest times we have faced in our lives and where the Holy spirit was in those times, something that we felt very lead to share with our audience. This, of course, would be a hard point to make without a crushing production, and we have to say that Nick Morris (As They Sleep) and Josh Dillon of Elaire Studios did a fantastic job at doing just that.” Continue reading »

Broken Flesh – “Broken Flesh”

Broken Fles_STartGory album cover and nearly unreadable band logo tell you a lot about what’s in store when you listen to Broken Flesh new self-titled album.  If I didn’t know of the band, just based on the cover I would expect crushing guitars, ultra-fast blast beats and all-around pummeling drums, and largely growled, mostly unintelligible vocals and that is exactly what awaits any unsuspecting listener.  As a follow up to Warbound, Broken Flesh have turned up the heaviness and crushing power to 11 and even rerecorded a couple tracks off their debut album to illustrate the progression in their sound.

Over ten years ago in 2004 Broken Flesh came together in Oklahoma City.  Five years later, the band released their debut album Forever in Flames, itself a brutal collection of eight tracks.  The next few years saw some personnel changes and label changes and the band released the Stripped, Stabbed, and Crucified ep in 2012 only to have more personnel changes as vocalist Ricky Puckett left the band.  Throughout it all, the band unashamedly held to their faith and played on a number of bills with bands like Six Feet Under and others in death metal that certainly don’t share their beliefs.  In 2013, the band released Warbound featuring new vocalist Jacob Mathes, who brought a deeper, more guttural, animal-like sound to the songs.  On Warbound, not only did the vocals become darker and heavier, but the music increased in tenacity and brutality.  For the self-titled release the band signed to Luxor Records and Nick Morris (As They Sleep) and Josh Dillon of Elaire Studios handled the production duties, making the album as heavy as possible to go with the songs, which vocalist Jacob Mathes said, “reflect some of the hardest times we have faced in our lives and where the Holy Spirit was in those times.”  Following recording of the album, the band added a second guitarist, Dakota Whiteside,whose addition will certainly add to their live performances.
