BLACK BREATH, MAMMOTH GRINDER, DRUDEN, SPECTRAL TOMBS
(Ash Street Saloon, 225 SW Ash) The stench in the air will be heavy and thick when Black Breath brings the evil halitosis on Tuesday. Borrowing Swedish death metal's buzz-saw guitar sound and meshing it with crossover thrash and the occasional groove-metal riff, the Seattle band's Sentenced to Life reemphasized their role last year as one of Southern Lord's flagship acts, as the label has shifted its focus away from doom metal and more to hardcore. Also playing is Mammoth Grinder, whose name pretty is much their best descriptor. Check out the recently released Underworlds for the Austin band's own crusty mix of death metal and hardcore.
