Broken Hope  


Broken Hope forged a mid-level career in the gore/death metal field, recording five albums between 1991 and 1999. They were accomplished if not really unique, with a mid-paced style complemented by typically low-pitched gurgly death vocals. They announced their disbanding in April 2002, by which time the lineup was a few memmbers removed from their last album of three years prior. At least two new projects were announced shortly after the breakup (these being Earthburner and Incivism), though neither has yet recorded anything substantial and may or may not still be active. Band leader Brian Griffin formed a side project called Em Sinfonia a few years ago, along with a couple of other Broken Hope members, but that band hasn't been heard from in a couple of years either.
