Black Breath Exhales

Australia Waits With Breath That Is Baited..... In Black

Black Breath emerged from dark basements and dive bars in the belly of Bellingham, Washington in 2005. Bored by the region’s apathy towards trenchant and punishing music, they combined elements of punk and metal with doses of the garage rock of their hometown. Their sound is acutely classic without being painfully retro; a ripping blend of Entombed, Celtic Frost, Poison Idea and Discharge.

Following a series of demos and a chain of below the radar tours across the USA, the band relocated to Seattle. Without even unpacking the van, Black Breath churned out the "Razor to Oblivion" EP on their own Hot Mass imprint; before signing to Southern Lord for their 2010 debut album "Heavy Breathing". 2012's "Sentenced To Life" projects an even more vile, metallic sonic attack than it's predecessor... the record features equal regiments of Swedish death metal, American heavy metal and sheer blasphemy.

This April the band will make their maiden trip to Australian shores with Canberra's I Exist coming along for the ride.
