Speaking of essential death metal, we arrive at this modern classic. Death Breath is from Sweden, it has guys from Entombed, it bears a huge d-beat influence. It's incredible. Literally the only complaint about Death Breath is that they don't have more releases. This is their EP and LP. Their EP has GBH, Bathory, and Discharge covers on it. If that isn't an indicator of the band's pedigree, I don't know what would be.
