A Look in The Local Bin: 34

I first came across 34 on the Amplify KC compilation put out by Westend Recording Studios. The band’s track, “Brimstone Cowboy,” was definitely one of the heaviest on the compilation.

Sentenced To Life: Black Breath live in Lawrence, KS 07/13/15

Southern Lord, the music label responsible for crushing doom and sludged-out drone metal, started signing a plethora of quality hardcore bands a few years ago. Seemingly out of the blue, but the results have been nothing but fantastic. Easily the best pickup of the label in this time has been Seattle’s Black Breath. With their […]
