It's ballsy naming your band after a Repulsion song, especially if you're not a grinding, gurgling, gore-obsessed death metal band. Thankfully for Seattle's Black Breath, they have enough speed and ferocity to justify their moniker. BB plays riff-tastic, crust-influenced metal with some flashes of hardcore—the band recently released their debut full-length Heavy Breathing on Southern Lord Records. Heavy's sound is similar to Black Breath's previous EP, only this time it has a giant opaque cloud looming over it; the result is much more dark and dreadful. The riffs are explosive and seemingly driven by terror. It's almost as if the band scares you into loving them. ARIS WALES
