A Broken Design


Extreme Management Group (EMG), home to bands like Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Rings of Saturn, and more, has announced their partnership with A BROKEN DESIGN (Malta).

Straddling the lines of Metal, Stoner Rock and Grunge, A Broken Design boasts seasoned musicians from a variety of musical backgrounds.

Guitarist Daniel Bezzina from early noughties extreme metal heavyweights Slit had known Vocalist Brendan Jackson from studio work he had done with Brendan’s Alternative Rock radio darlings Eve Ransom and Scream Daisy respectively. Realizing they wanted to write and perform together,  they seized the opportunity to work on a new project.

Completing the lineup with drummer Chris Galea (Nomad Son), bassist Conrad Dimech (Blacklight Studios) and as of 2021 Simon Deguara on Vocals (Kill the Action) as the backbone and dynamic purveyors for the hard hitting songs, A Broken Design’s lineup is now complete.

Drawing on influence from the decay of the human psyche and tribulations and seeking comfort through composition, A Broken Design digs deep into the corners of dark, melodic, heavy, brooding and groove soaked spectrum along the lines that fans of Alice In Chains music and lyrical themes would feel right at home. The ‘grand’ design is broken, it’s failed, strength through perseverance are the steps forward. A Broken Design is your soundtrack to it.

With the eclectic mix of influences, all inspiring a common vision and goal set, the writing and recording for the debut E.P. ‘Halo Of Flies’ (2017) came together seamlessly and set the blueprint for the band and garnered a loyal fanbase.

The follow up album ‘Another Day In Hell’ is to date the most mature sounding collection of songs put to record for the band, with songs like the title track exploring the ad nauseam dynamic of being stuck in a never ending loophole, and the emotionally driven “Alone” delving deep into personal catharsis are amongst the collection of heavy, dynamic and dark compositions showcasing the band broadening its sound to further sonic templates.

The release of “Another Day In Hell” via Argonauta Records is available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats worldwide via PIAS distribution.

The band is currently writing the follow up album picking up off the strengths of the previous release and pushing further into the depths of the collective mindstate.

Now the band has signed with Extreme Management Group, and had the following to say about the partnering, “We’re all extremely happy and proud to be taking this next step in the band’s story alongside EMG, they understand fully what we’re about, who we are and where we are headed, and they’re definitely the right fit to start our new chapter of A Broken Design with.” EMG said, “A Broken Design has made some great moves and music to get themselves to this point. We intend to make that hard work count”.
