Biography

Pacific Northwest (2007 – present)

Black Breath is a band from the Pacific Northwest who have quickly shredded their way to popularity. With members of Shook Ones, Go It Alone, Blue Monday, Get the Most, and On, they began in 2007 as crossover band with a joking spirit such as songs like “Party Idea” in their 2007 Demo. In 2008, they released a 4-song 12” EP, Razor To Oblivion, which proved their step in a more serious direction, writing riffs that are reminiscent of first-wave thrash, black, and death metal bands such as Celtic Frost and Hellhammer, but maintain a traditional hardcore punk undertone.

Although Black Breath is a fairly young band they are quickly becoming everyone’s new favorite band. They have absolutely stormed onto the hardcore and metal scene with their unique and uncompromising sound. After gathering a loyal cult following the band took their assault around the USA supporting Trap Them and Victims. Late last year Southern Lord released the very first recordings from Black Breath in the form of the Razor to Oblivion EP. Raw, intense and in your face this EP has created a immense buzz and effectively set up the highly anticipated next move!

For this, their debut full-length the band went into Kurt Ballou’s (Converge, Trap Them, Disfear) God City studios in Salem, Massachussets. The end result of those monumental sessions is a recording much darker, heavier and more brutal than anything they have done before. The direction of the album contains many of the punk and hardcore influences that were exhibited on the Razor To Oblivion EP.

    "Swedish death metal has a lot of crust influence anyway so that doesn't really negate what CanIUseThis posted." wat.

    to be fair if this was instrumental, no one would call it crust, but who gives a fuck, everything about them is brilliant and unique. We are gathered here to applaud their music. not to fight over the definition.

    You clearly are a newb if you think the vocals are the only thing crust about Black Breath.

    Right, because vocals define the genre. Despite the fact that the music is complete swedish dm and early Florida dm worship. Also, if you say "newb" after 2005 you should blow your head open with a shotgun.

    @CanIUseThis Yeah that's exactly why they aren't a death metal band. [2] "CanIUseThis" clearly has little to no knowledge about genres. Perhaps he's just a newb and isn't aware of crust, and that there's loads of wicked crust/metal bands out there.

    They need to get rid of those shitty vocals. Hardcore vocals do not belong in death metal.
