Black Breath
Black Breath
"Slaves Beyond Death” is the 3rd full-length from the new kings of Seattle Death Metal: Black (FUCKING) Breath. Like its predecessors, this album was recorded by Kurt Ballou (High on Fire, Nails, Baptists, Converge) at his infamous God City studio in Salem, MA. The heathens of the Breath have taken a decidedly more sick and evil sonic direction with their latest burnt offering. They have effectively and efficiently ripped off their old skin and left us with a more grotesque, rotting corpse of PURE filthy Death Metal. Bid farewell to any good time hardcore, punk or retro thrash vibes. Its all putrid stench and bile vomited up by THEE best current DM band that currently rages. This music ain’t pretty but neither are you.

Suit up, strap it on and get ready to get pummeled!
Goatsnake
Goatsnake
Goatsnake was formed in 1996 from the ashes of The Obsessed. After The Obsessed's demise, the rhythm section consisting of Guy Pinhas (former bassist of the Dutch stonerband Beaver) on bass and Greg Rogers on drums began jamming with guitarist Greg Anderson (Thorr's Hammer, Burning Witch, Sunn O)))). They soon found a vocalist in Pete Stahl (Scream, Wool, earthlings?, Desert Sessions). Goatsnake recorded and released two 7" EPs in 1998 and were featured on several metal compilations. They released their debut full-length, 1, in 1999 on Man's Ruin Records/Rise Above Records.

Goatsnake toured the Europe in support of their debut album and played with bands such as Unida, Fatso Jetson, and Electric Wizard. They returned in 2000 for a U.K. tour with Orange Goblin and Sunn O))), another Anderson project.

In 2000 Pinhas left Goatsnake to join Acid King and was replaced by Stuart Dahlquist of Burning Witch. Goatsnake released a split with Burning Witch on Hydra Head Records that same year. They also released the Dog Days EP on Anderson's Southern Lord Records that same year. Later that year they released their second album, Flower of Disease on Man's Ruin Records/Rise Above Records.

Joey Castillo (Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age) replaced Goatsnake's original drummer Greg Rogers after his departure in 2001, but that was short lived.

The band split up in 2001 and Anderson continued with Sunn O))) and played in Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine.

In 2004 the band reformed with Anderson and Stahl being joined by bassist Scott Reeder (The Obsessed, Kyuss) and drummer JR (Cave In). They recorded three songs which were released on the Trampled Under Hoof EP along with two previously vinyl-only tracks. This same year also saw the release of the compilation 1 + Dog Days by Southern Lord Records, which combines the first album and the Dog Days EP as well as a track from the Man of Light EP.

In 2010 the band played a headlining set at Roadburn 2010 in which seems like a one off reunion.
Battalion of Saints
Battalion of Saints
The Battalion of Saints is a legendary punk band formed in 1980 out of San Diego, Ca. Their deep impression left on music scene is still influencial, and regarded as one of the original icons and pioneers of hardcore punk. After several line up changes, due to the tragic deaths of various members throughout the years, front man and mainstay George Anthony reformed Batts with members of Total Chaos and The Spooky. Their brutal sound and talented line up continues to stay true to their hardcore punk roots and sound, with fast and furious tracks that bring the adrenaline and raw power out of the volatile combination.
