Cracked Vessel is a three piece band from Chicago, Illinois who formed in early 2014, from the looks of things. Cracked Vessel play a vicious and brutal as fuck style of music that incorporates elements of post hardcore, screamo, crust, and black metal within their sound. Musically, Cracked Vessel can be loosely compared to bands such as Carrion Spring, Kaddish, Lentic Waters, Protestant, Totem Skin, and other like-minded bands. Since forming in 2014, Broken Vessel have released a three song EP titled Parth I in March of 2014, a three song EP titled Path II in March of 2014, a six song live EP titled The Wayward Path: Live On WHPK in May of 2014, a five song EP titled Path IV in November of 2014, and a three song EP titled CV+G in May of 2016. No Path is the band's debut full-length LP, which was released via Hip Kid records on December 9th, 2016. On No Path, Cracked Vessel offer up eight tracks of vicious, chaotic, and volatile sounding post hardcore, screamo, black metal, and crust. Overall, No Path is an amazing LP and should not be missed. Highly recommended! Enjoy!
