"A Broken Code- Retribution For 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.

"Hip Hop/Metal/Reggae/Call it what you wanna"

“The voice on the other end of the line is, as always, good natured and layed back replies “E-Rock Obama, Yeah man I can do it . When?”. So I explain to him the concept and we decided on a time. A time that I oversleep for. Let me backtrack for a second though. The voice is that of Jenko. Lead vocalist of Hip Hop/Metal/Reggae/Call it what you wanna but its good, band A Broken Code. Hailing from NYC, some say they sound like Rage Against The Machine in a head on collision with The Wailers. Me, I cannot really put a tag on them. They do have that Ska swag , yet its up to date and its own entity. That is also only one side of the madness. If you scratch a bit deeper you will find a metallic juggernaut with intricate melodies and some evil riffs. Not to mention Jenko’s passionate delivery soaring over the crowd. Now I must admit I feel close to the music on account of sitting in as a guitarist with them for about 7 months .”— Marc Montfleury, Indie Band Guru - Marc Montfleury, Indie Band Guru

"A Broken Code live @ Sullivan Hall"

Bringing a raw mix of Hip-hop, Reggae, and Metal — the band A Broken Code will be performing live at Sullivan Hall in The Village on May 19th. A Broken Code‘s front man, Jenko spits socially conscious lyrics over dope drum beats, wicked metal riffs and roaring baselines.

"A Broken Code"

I love this band. I saw them one night at bitter end and they killed it. It was one of the dopest live shows I seen at the time in the city. I randomly found then on myspace and decided to check them out. I was amped to find they had this ragga vibe to their music, and along with a poetic/ hip-hop beat. The milti member band just goes out and kills it no matter who is in the crowd at there shows your going to get inter-activity. Half way through there set they has a whine down contest with audience members. If you you don't know what that is its like dubbing but with more waist action. This one big girl almost broke off this lil-dude. LOL. They are truly a fav of mine. I have a few pictures of there set enjoy. - Kaos Blac

Retribution For The Afflicted



Finally, a band with the intensity of those who did this genre best, Rage Against The Machine.
Front man Jenko spits socially conscious lyrics over dope drum beats, wicked metal riffs and roaring baselines. A must see live. Their forefathers Anthrax and Public Enemy would be proud to see these guys bring the noise.
