Oh Sh*t Yeah, Here Comes A New Black Breath Album!
I can’t believe it’s been three years since Black Breath released Sentenced To Life. Since I bought it, the sophomore release by the Washington blackened hardcore outfit (cue the douchebags arguing about genre title) has been on heavy rotation at my place. So few bands make albums that crushing.
And thank fuck, they’ve just announced another one! The PRP reports that the band will release Slaves Beyond Death on September 25th via Southern Lord. The album was produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, whose previous work includes All Pigs Must Die, Misery Index, and High On Fire (as well as previous Black Breath releases). All things considered, this record is going to puncture your intestines and you’re going to die from septic shock. Fuck yeah.
But as punishing as they are recorded, Black Breath are fucking murderous live, and if you’re on the West Coast you’ve got a nice opportunity to catch them. The band will be appearing on the following dates of the Southern Lord Tour with Goatsnake, Battalion of Saints, and Obliterations.
