Black Breath

There aren’t many Northwest metal bands poised quite so naturally for national success as the men of Black Breath, who first began making a dark racket out of Bellingham in 2005. Though still a relatively young band, diligent touring and a stunning EP (Razor to Oblivion, released on their own Hot Mass Records) that seamlessly fuses blistering hardcore to the curves of classic metal quickly earned them a fleet of underground fans and a sweetheart deal with one of the most prestigious label’s within their genre. Southern Lord Records picked up distribution of the EP and today releases the band’s full-length, Heavy Breathing. The band embarks on an epic tour with Converge next month, so today’s in-store at Easy Street is going to be one of your last chances to catch them in a smaller setting. HANNAH LEVIN
