Hailing from Montreal, QC, BornBroken is aggressive music for critical masses. They are a band that thrives on fury at the injustices of the world we are living in and now is the right time for their righteous rage, it feeds their creative furnace!
Metal lifers; they give their music and fans 100%; their anger is authentic, yet it is not mindless anger, their intentions are for change for the good. A new world is what they wish to build, better than the old edifice that crumbles around us, a world of equality and justice for all!
“Music is our mistress, our life. It has brought us back from the brink of death after leading us there. Playing music with this band has given our days a purpose and our nights a reason. BornBroken is a name we can all relate to, as we struggle to accept the world around us. Even more today as it seems we are set out on a path to fail before we have a chance to learn who we are.” says guitarist Mike Decker.
Following up their well-received 2013 debut album ‘The Healing Powers of Hate’, they return in 2018 with a 40 minute freight-train on “The Years of Harsh Truths and Little Lies”. The new album features a refreshed line up that includes vocalist Pepe Peloquin (Endast), drummer Samuel Santiago (Gorod, First Fragment) along with bassist Red Voizard to join founding members and guitarists Mike Decker and Simon Sivard. The ten track assault is heavier and angrier plus even includes special guest vocals from Slaves On Dope’s Jason Rockman on “Fight”.
“We felt the need to go 7 string and tune to (Drop G) for this latest batch of songs, it seemed fitting for the way the band was leaning towards. We keep the same writing style, writing what we want, when we want. First writing for ourselves and then molding into more standard song frame, so people can get the hook of the song, and make it a memorable sound to them.”
Teaming up with MetalInjection.net, BORNBROKEN are premiering their bludgeoning brutality in their new music video for the album’s first single and title track.

“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.″ – TheFrontRowReport
“These extreme metallers have done an amazing job of combining death and thrash…” – Yell Magazine
“Working off catchy as fuck, breakdown inflected riffs BornBroken mercilessly pound the listener to pulp. There is absolutely no doubt people leave a BornBroken show with injuries.” – Hellbound
“Marching to the sounds of brutal bass, slamming percussion, high-speed guitar solos and violently powerful vocals, the broken shall rise.” – LouderThanHell
“Many of the hooks and riffs are excellent, they absolutely destroy my speakers, and the bedroom mosh commences.” – MetalStorm
“BornBroken have resurrected the intense metallic sounds of bands the likes of A Life Once Lost, Hatebreed, Nora, and Arise And Ruin that once dominated the North American metal scene. It’s wonderful to hear a band like BornBroken bringing back what some might consider the peak sound of modern metal.” – PureGrainAudio.com
“Pour percer le domaine du groove métal, tu dois avoir de bons… grooves! Et Bornbroken t’en sert dans bouche à grands coups de louche, toutes très pleines ! Groupe émergeant de la scène québécoise, cette troupe de Montréalais replace les pièces de certains puzzles laissées au sol par des groupes comme Pantera,Lamb of God et Hatebreed car en plus d’être métal et groové, on sent une petite corde bien tendue vers le hardcore métallisée…Si je m’entrainais au gym, question d’augmenter le volume de façon exponentielle de mon chest et de mes bras, c’est sur du Bornbroken que je le ferais!” – MusikUniverse
“Musically, BornBroken are a more solid, and extremely heavy, lot. Simon Savard and Mike Decker’s surging, Dimebag Darrell-inspired grooves hit like haymakers throughout, aided by the sort of dry, ultra-punchy production Terry Date used to achieve such brutal majesty with Pantera, Unearth, Deftones and on White Zombie’s Astro Creep: 2000. The sound here is huge – especially for a self-released effort – clear and quite pummeling.” – Metal-Rules
“BornBroken deserves broad attention. They’ve already made a very big impression in their native Montreal, both for their live performances as well as their music in general. I honestly don’t know that much about the Montreal metal scene, but I do know that it is getting bigger and more competitive. For these guys to emerge as a local favorite suggests something of their overall quality. Give this one a spin.” SeaofTranquility
“Ça me manquait d’entendre du bon groove métal et cette formation de Montréal excelle dans ce domaine. Imagine un mélange de Pantera et Lamb Of God avec une voix hardcore à la Hatebreed et ça te donne une bonne idée du style que propose BornBroken.” – Boulevard Brutal
