Ill Breed - Black Pane/Blistered


1. Black Pane
2. Blistered

I received this anonymous e-mail in 2014 featuring scant details about a band called Ill Breed. God knows why it's taken me this long to give em a listen! Ill Breed are a hardcore band from Arizona and this demo was mastered at Audiosiege, so it's already a winner! I reckon this is the type of band that Rich from Speedowax would enjoy, after all he's put out records by Vulgar Display and Incited in the past. 

Ill Breed aren’t just your typical brushing hardcore band and the noisy intro to Black Pane proves that. Once it fades out though you’re greeted with riff heavy thrash and metal. It kind of reminds me of Biohazard and they’re definitely not just a hardcore band. There’s plenty of groove going on throughout both Black Pane and Blistered, but no real obvious breakdowns, which isn’t a bad thing in my eyes. Yes they’re heavy, but they don’t rely on the breakdown to hammer their point home. Ill Breed are cleverer than that. This EP may be all to brief, but it’s never too late to check a band out and you’ll be left wanting more.
