The Unbroken most definitely have it going on

Brooklyn metal outfit The Unbroken recently released their debut EP, entitled Human Crown, a collection of songs fueled by punk rock energy and ferocious metal punch. Co-produced by John Bender, the EP was mixed by Johan Meyer and mastered by Alan Douches.
