Black Breath's Merciless Thrash

Posted by on Fri, Dec 27, 2013 at 11:09 AM

(Crocodile) It felt like there was a brief moment in Black Breath's career when everyone in the Seattle region with even the slightest appreciation for metal embraced their punkish appropriation of Slayer's relentless thrash and Dismember's deathly chug, yet the band was virtually unknown outside of a 100-mile radius. This meant that you could watch Black Breath unleash their fury in local holes-in-the-wall on a regular basis. But as is often the case with Seattle's local heroes, the secret was short-lived, and now Black Breath spend a sizable chunk of the year bashing it out in different hemispheres. That absence makes this show an extra-special, if somewhat belated, Christmas gift to Seattle's Black Breath fans—an overdue dose of blasphemy and brutality to counteract the festive holidays. With Old Skin and Countdown to Armageddon.
