Broken Down's debut album is a melting-pot of several subgenres mixed into short direct tracks ejected as a slobbery spit.

Considering this album released in 2015, the music of Broken Down can be described as a fusion of industrial music, doom metal, sludge or any other down-tempo genre and some kind of groove which can be either taken from US Hardcore or Southern Metal. As its music has no limit, barrier and follows no code, it's possible to find black metal or stoner, roaring or rocking riffs here and there. But don't fear this mix, the music goes straight to the point with direct and not complicated structures.

Vocals are a fresco of personal reflections through introspective lyrics.

In addition to being available for download, Broken Down's debut album First Spit will be released as a Mint Pack CD.

Its styling is reminiscent to the old vinyl record sleeves. This kind of pack is also eco friendly as its robust cardboard cover is 60% lighter than your standard jewel case.

The band took what he needed where he needed and add its own feelings into this mix which can only be named as Broken Down's music

Reviews

  • Une sortie improbable (..) se rapprochant de Ramesses pour la sauvagerie, de Ufomammut pour le rendu bidouill, de Doomraiser pour le volet lancinant et les vocaux ainsi que de quelques anciens Neurosis pour ce qui est de la texture industrielle.
    Une production qui sadresse donc un public averti, amateur de sensations aussi dlicates que le dcrassage du canal auditif la perceuse-frappeuse.

  • Il ne faudrait pas tout de suite ranger ces morceaux de Broken Down dans des compartiments bien tanches car Jeff Maurer est tout instant capable de faire basculer ses chansons d'une atmosphre l'autre (...) un album la forte personnalit, relativement dpouill mais nanmoins riche en pisodes musicaux versatiles. Ce n'est pas vraiment du doom metal, ce n'est pas vraiment du punk hardcore, ce n'est pas vraiment du mtal industriel, c'est un peu de tout la fois et a sait capter l'attention ()

  • Since Broken Down has more or less filled his bowl with genres and boiled it into his own sound, it more or less becomes one big, undefinable mess to me (...) if you are more open-minded than me, I would definitely recommend it. ()

  • Un univers part, cohrent, trange car dtournant des choses familires sa sauce et qui devrait intresser les amoureux des trucs part ! ()

  • Das Ergebnis ist dann ein sehr heterogenes Klangerlebnis, das weniger so wirkt, als htte man die Genres miteinander verwoben, sondern mit dem Vorschlaghammer und Sekundenkleber zum Zusammenhalten gezwungen. (...) Wer aber kreative Musik mag, der ein gewisses Chaos innewohnt, wird das Album mgen; ()

  • Jeff s'est concentr sur une nouvelle aventure en solo laissant ainsi exprimer ses ides non-conventionnelles (...) petite galette fort sympathique qui malgr son apparente tranget et la contradiction des styles (contradiction qui n'est fonde que sur des codes inexistants et l'troitesse d'esprit de certaines personnes), fonctionne trs bien et offre de trs bonnes ides. (...) Gageons que le potentiel lev de ce projet pourra aboutir quelque chose d'norme dans le futur. ()

  • on sent que Jeff a appris canaliser cette crativit bouriffante (...) Le traitement des rythmiques sonne toujours trs NINE INCH NAILS (un amour de jeunesse pour lequel son coeur na jamais cess de battre), certains riffs de guitare sentent bon le southern fried rock (A Pill Hard To Swallow, bon petit tube underground) et les claviers grandiloquents apportent une touche de schizophrnie familire toujours bienvenue ()

  • Jeff nimmt Doom, Electronic, ein bisschen Industrial, eine Portion Sludge und Rock und verquirlt die Zutaten zu einem zhen Zement, der sich langsam ber deine Ohren ergiet. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit werden sicherlich die Coverversionen des Albums erhalten, denn die Bearbeitungen sind grandios und und erfllen meine Standards fr gute Coverversionen: das Original in smtliche Einzelteile zerlegen und dann vllig anders zusammensetzen, ohne den Wiedererkennungswert komplett zu schrotten ()

  • interesting take on metal even half way (...) innovative mixture of styles. ()

  • There are albums that look like they're going to be terrible, but then turn out to be hidden gems. BROKEN DOWN's debut release, "First Spit", is definitely one of them. (...) blend different musical ideas together to make something new, and I've got to admit it they've definitely succeeded. (...) The vocal line from a Dance Pop classic in the middle of a Metal track elevates this track from "just another song" to borderline genius. (...) Normally, this would not be my kind of thing, but this is definitely an exception. I loved listening to this, and I highly recommend that you give this a listen at least once. ()

  • Officiant dans un style trs original, on retrouve dans ce one man band des lments doom, indus, groove metal, une pince de death (sur certains vocaux), en bref voil dj un cocktail qui fera fuir les plus ferms desprit. (...) Il fallait oser et il la fait. Je conseille lalbum aux personnes ouvertes desprit, pour sr vous en serez ravis. Le sentiment qui se dgage est vraiment positif ()

  • een dappere poging doet een unieke stijl te zoeken, klinkt First Spit niet verkeerd.(...) First Spit van Broken Down is dus een welkome nieuweling in zware metalenland ()

  • Das fngt schon bei der Verpackung an, die kunterbunt daher kommt und das schwarz-verwhnte Metallerauge vllig berfordert. (...) Spontan fllt mir als Erstes die Beschreibung BONEY M. meets ROB ZOMBIE ein. (...) Nhere Informationen ber diese Band zu finden, ist zumindest mir nicht gelungen ()

  • Lo que ms me sorprende es como le ha dado la vuelta al Doom tradicional para hacer que suene mecnico y fro, lejos de esa solemnidad evocadora del gnero. De hecho en First Spit se adivinan buenas ideas y un camino muy interesante por explorar ()

  • is it a hidden temptation poisoning the listeners mind? Really, I have no idea (...) Each piece is a totally weird expression of sonic Anti-Art. The solo-outfit draws its influences from tens of different styles, mingling them into a mad experience. And after having listened to this EP, you wont forget it (...) I cant say I like it, but I surely enjoyed the stuff. ()

  • arrte de nous polluer les oreilles (...) A part les sourds, je ne vois pas qui pourrait acheter ce disque et s'en dclarer satisfait. ()

  • Seriously though, worst thing musically I have heard out of France since Fadades! ()

  • cet effort de Broken Down savre tre un coup dans leau et une relle arnaque pour tout acqureur de lenregistrement. ()

  • Diese Scheibe ist ein echtes rgernis. Manchmal klingt es gar so, als htte jeder einzelne Musiker beim Aufnehmen nicht recht gewut, welcher Song gerade dran ist. Mag sein, da Broken Down hier versuchen besonders originell und fortschrittlich zu klingen. ()

  • C'est sr que ce n'est pas le genre de trucs que l'on coute tous les jours (...) Bref, j'ai pas aim BROKEN DOWN ()

  • Whenever I listen to a new band, I hope to be lucky enough to be reviewing the next Slipknot (...) It was clear from the outset that this wasnt going to be one of those albums. (...) Im sorry to say, this has been a complete miss. (...) I suspect theyre destined to fail. ()

  • Was soll das hier denn sein? Die franzsische Band prsentiert einen extrem kndeligen Snger mit einer Mixtur aus Metal, Elektro und Industrial ()

  • 'First Spit' is the debut album by Broken Down, a hardcore punk metal project from the South West of France, with industrial and some electronic inclinations. (...) If you want to really alienate your friends when they visit, just put on this on and it will certainly do the trick. ()

  • Jeff aime s'amuser avec les exprimentations musicales bases sur le metal et un style industriel (...) Les ides, la volont et l'nergie cratrices sont l. Il n'y a plus qu' lancer la machine pour de bon. ()
