Life Reaper (300)I, The Breather is a metalcore band from Baltimore, Maryland. After their first self-released EP “I, The Breather”, they signed to Sumerian Records where they released two other albums, “These Are My Sins: (2010) and “Truth and Purpose” (2012).

After a few lineup changes during the years where only Shawn Spann (vocals) remained as a founding member, they released another album this year, called: “Life Reaper”.  Let’s take a look, or listen, at it.

What I notice instantly is that they are not afraid to use electronical influences on this album. The first song ‘Setting:Sun’ is full of it but also of some heavy breakdowns and the typical chugging at the guitarstrings. Almost the same can be said for the next song ‘Soul:Seek’ , the big difference is that this song has a catchy chorus. Continue reading »

False Profit, the new video from Baltimore, Maryland-based Christian metallers I The Breather, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Thunder Down Country Productions.

Commented I The Breather drummer Morgan Wright: “Our objective with this clip was to create a dark and edgy video. It’s very different from our last video. That was more of a straight-up performance-based video capturing the band in a live element. This video allowed us to use props, add in some acting and have a legit concept. When it came to acting, Shawn [Spann, vocals] stepped it up and took on the task of the protagonist. Continue reading »

I The Breather are a quintet from the vicinity of Baltimore (USA). With their debut album ‘These Are My Sins’, which was released late 2010, the band made an overwhelming impression. The album was filled with sharp, energetic music, driven by math-core rhythms, a djent sound on the guitars and sweet, appealing choruses.

I The Breather handed in some of the typical djent guitar sound; it is now used more sporadic, which makes the album a lot more balanced. The vocals are sharp and are filled with emotion. There is also a little more room for, though still sporadic, clean vocals. Continue reading »
