BORNBROKEN Announce New Drummer Search

amr_logo_smal_570Groove metal band BornBroken have parted ways with drummer Jonathan Menard and are now in search of a hard hitting, blast beating slayer to take on live and upcoming recording duties for the bands follow up to their debut album ‘The Healing Powers of Hate’ released this past summer.

In a statement released by the band:

“It is with a heavy heart today that we announce that BornBroken and long time drummer for the band Jonathan Menard have decided to part ways.

Jonathan has been part of BornBroken for the past 3 years and was a substantial member of the growth of the band. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and we will remain best of friends with him for years to come.

With that being said, we are currently holding video submission auditions for BornBroken. If you think you have what it takes then we want to see it! Please send all video submissions or inquiries to BornBroken facebook page here. Finalists will be contacted for further auditioning.

BornBroken is not going anywhere; we are not disbanding in anyway. We are currently in the writing process for our next album which will be recorded and released sometime in 2014. Stay tuned cause what we have coming up in the near future for The Broken is going to blow your mind…the best is yet to come..see you in the pit.” – BornBroken

In addition, Jonathan Ménard comments:

‘‘It’s really hard to write these lines, but my association with BornBroken is unfortunately over as we have decided to go our separate ways. However, we are on good terms in ending this adventure together and I would like to thank the band that has given me the chance to be part of a family, life experiences and cherished memories. Thank you to everyone who believed in me and I will never forget BornBroken.’’

BornBroken’s debut album ‘The Healing Powers of Hate’ was released earlier this June. The album was fan voted as Album of The Week (June 10th) on Revolver Magazine, along with debuting #8 on Canadian College Loud Charts, plus being named one of the best unsigned Heavy Metal Bands for June on About.com.

They have also received great admiration from Yell Magazine! quoting ‘This is a debut metal album of epic proportions. If it’s not the Canadian metal album of the year, it’s certainly in the running for Canadian debut metal album’ and TheFrontRowReport.com quoting ‘BornBroken may be the best metal band you probably haven’t heard of. Those who love hard, heavy, angry metal are in for a treat and may find a new favorite in BornBroken.’

About:

BornBroken was formed with one simple mission in mind: Help the masses find a voice, a face, an “X” that marks the spot through the sounds of beating skins, metal strings and broken chords.

After months of writing and hours spent in the studio, BornBroken managed to take every emotion they felt, put it to music, build off of past battle scars and create a record where listeners will feel they are part of the storyline.

On their debut album, The Healing Powers of Hate, BornBroken play out not only what life has given them but also what they want to give back: truth, integrity, perseverance, loyalty and faith in humanity’s struggle for equality.

Jet Set Trash November 2013 Newsletter

EXHORTH – Like This
Release Date: 11/5/2013

We proudly present to you the latest member of the Jet Set Trash family, Brazil based bassline master Exhorth!

With 13 years of music experience on all levels, and coming from a Metal background, Exhorth might be a new name but is definitely no stranger to the fans of bass-dripping EDM styles and Electro-step sounds. Previously a member of the duo Divine-X, with releases on Freakz Me Out, Simplify Recordings and The Pooty Club Records, the Brazilian artist has now embarked on a new musical journey under the alias Exhorth and is taking things to the next level. With releases already out on SectionZ and Play Me Too Records, Exhorth has found his new home on Jet Set Trash and is now ready to launch his next wave of bass assault with his new EP Like This.

“Like This” is big and loud, is maximal and melodic, is catchy and hard, and has a lot of everything for each and every single fan of the whole EDM spectrum. The great production, fresh sound, and inspiration behind the original track turbo-charge what is one of the most dynamic originals we have heard for some time, while the 3 remixes are boosting the release beyond the boundaries of awesome.

The phenomenal up & comer Mr. Batou, the unique and always creative Drop Goblin, and Portuguese headbanger Knooper, who constantly keeps surprising us, are on remixing duties. Top quality remixes by all 3.

GORFLSH – Undead 
Release Date: 11/18/2013

After a short hiatus from Gor FLsh, the artist with the most brutal release of 2012 is back from the grave with a brand new EP!

Following the great success of his debut “Gore FLsh” LP (reaching to #32 of the Beatport Top 100 Electro House Releases last year) and a number of official remixes for the likes of Zardonic, Rubber Spanner, and more, the time has come for the Canadian artist to terrorize the electronic music world once again.

Out on November 18, “Undead” is Gor FLsh’s 4th official release and marks the return of one of the most uncompromising artists the hard electro scene has seen or heard in the land of the living.

2 brand new originals with Gor FLsh’s signature aggressive sound plus 4 remixes by the notorious bass gang of Skitsnygg, Hantise, Dave Scorp, and Laforcah, who are once again out for blood. Loudness, full sounding bass, mayhem, destruction, and a lot of headbanging is what you should be expecting from Undead.

Those of you familiar with Gor FLsh’s legacy of brutality prepare for yet another elbow in the face; for those just introduced to this violent bass extremist’s music for the first time, prepare to be shocked!
