Black Breath Razor to Oblivion
4 songs of Portland D-Beat. Sometimes I get a craving for Taco Bell. Not Mexican food, but Taco Bell. D-Beat is the same. Give it to me executed exactly to the winning formula. Discharge and Motorhead as the main ingredients. Don't get to slick or original. Black Breath deliver. 4 songs in 15 minutes or so. Totally raging. Perfect interval music. Peg the heartrate for the length of the jam.
Portland has always been a "metal-punk" town in my mind. Poison Idea, Accused,and on and on. Everything had a metal edge or look to it. Portland always reminds me of this. Black Breath keep that tradition alive. The label is name checking the right bands, but then going a little too far with the Celtic Frost/Bathory allusions.The mighty Repulsion from whom they jacked their name are an better comparison. Stick to the formula. Shredding D-beat that will have you coming back for more.
They self released this on vinyl and southernlord has the cd. Full length on the way.
