Back in the 80’s it was fairly common for bands to move to LA to try and make it big. Lost Breed is among the many bands that made that trip from NY to LA. They soon met up with the legendary Scott “Wino” Weinrich, whom at the time had already had 2 Saint Vitus records under his belt, was soon to be releasing a 3rd Saint Vitus record, and was also in the process of restarting The Obsessed back up again. Even with all of those irons in the fire, he started writing and jamming with Lost Breed. With his main roots and influence coming from the Maryland Doom Metal scene, it’s no surprise that Lost Breed fits right in there stylistically. With that said, Wino did lay a nice foundation for the band to build and grow from. Wino only appears on their first Demo and doesn’t appear on either album since at some point he probably realized he had too much going on and 2 bands to focus on were enough. With all of the music out there, it’s going to be a big surprise for people who haven’t heard this band yet. They have extremely unusual songwriting skills that not only make you scratch your head, but also bang your head at the same time. Once the music of Lost Breed settles in, it’s quite the listening experience and after a while you might think to yourself how does something that sounds so complex and disjointed work together so well? So, what does this sound like? We’re still trying to figure this out. In short, it just does, but if you’re looking for a reference point, then start with The Obsessed and some old Soundgarden and play both records at the same time. “The Evil in You and Me” is arguably the first “Doom Rock” album to ever exist. Some might call it “Stoner Rock” (we wouldn’t agree), but whatever it is, it’s pretty groundbreaking.
