A BROKEN CODE
RETRIBUTION OF THE AFFLICTED
NYC unit A Broken Code administers a vibrant hip-hop metal vibe on the quintet’s scorching eight-track affair RETRIBUTION OF THE AFFLICTED. Featuring a bounty of slamming riffs and fiery verses spit with passion, this Big Apple band supplies a well-focused intensity fusing the cadence of Rage Against the Machine, the volatility of Bad Brains, and the ferocity of Body Count while underlying layers of jazz and funk sprout up in between the headbanging grooves (“Strong or Strange”) for added depth and texture. Brimming over with vivid instrumentation, tasty guitar riffs and tones and a rock solid rhythm section holding it all down, A Broken Code delivers an authentic amalgamation of metal and rap that breathes much needed life into the fading genre.
