Like Entombed fighting Wolfpack in a Poison Idea cover song competition after soaking in bourbon for a year, BLACK BREATH’s tonal massiveness is as crushing and dominating as it is upbeat and empowering. The Seattle-based quintet’s heavy sound integrates elements invented by Swedish death metal and hardcore legends, yet still flowing with plenty of pissed-off American blood, as proven on their potent Razor To Oblivion EP — released in early 2009 then re-released by Southern Lord later in the year — and then even more impressively on their debut full-length Heavy Breathing, which infiltrated endless best of 2010 lists everywhere.
