In a band statement, VIOLENT LIFE VIOLENT DEATH offers, "We are very excited to finally let our family, friends, and fans of heavy music hear what we've been cooking up. We put a lot of thought and hard work into this album, and we are very proud of how it turned out. Can't wait to see all of you at our upcoming shows this summer!"
On Come, Heavy Breath, VIOLENT LIFE VIOLENT DEATH utilizes gritty, gut-punching production - led by producer Kyle Dameron at Rareform Recordings in Hickory, NC-to generate a wall of unrelenting hardcore, metal, punk, and even blues-influenced aggression that doesn't stop until the last second of the record.
Come, Heavy Breath track listing: 1) Come, Heavy Breath
Featuring former members of Deception of a Ghost (Trustkill/Bullet Tooth), A Stained Glass Romance (Torque/Victory), and Aria (Tribunal), VIOLENT LIFE VIOLENT DEATH broke out in late 2016 with the release of their first studio offering, V-EP - a vicious, nostalgic effort summoning influences reminiscent of Zao with an in-your-face, chaotic Every Time I Die-like edge. Lambgoat dubbed the release, "a formidable debut", and Invicta Mag stated,
"For a band so fresh to produce something of this quality at the start... they have paved the way for a promising career."
