Southern Lord has transcended its existence as a mere record label to become a qualifier of a certain sound of doom/black/Swedish-tinged metal and takes some of its finest/scariest/intense-est acts on the road for their Southern Lord Package Tour. Headlining this wrecking ball of a tour is Seattle’s barbaric crew BLACK BREATH, whose second LP, Sentenced to Life projects a vile, metallic sonic attack of ten thunderous tracks in just under 33 minutes. With less rock & roll swagger than their previous release and more full-on crushing death metal rage, BLACK BREATH induce crippling head banging from the moment they take the stage. On BURNING LOVE’s recent Rotten Thing To Say, there’s no technical excess or abstract experimentation, just a focused assault on your ears taking the energy of punk, tics of hardcore and the epic-ness of metal and blending it all together into a shouting juggernaut that rarely exceeds 3 minutes. Milwaukee-based extreme hardcore/metal crossover killers ENABLER and local shit-kickers CULO open. Prepare for a full-on sonic assault.
