No discussion of heavy metal is complete without the United Kingdom. Britain gave us Black Sabbath, arguably the originators of the genre. It was the birthplace us the New Wave of British Heavy Metal: the classic breed of bands like Iron Maiden and Diamond Head that influenced US thrashers like Metallica. These days, bands like Bullet For My Valentine have arisen over the last few years to fly the flag for Her Majesty’s Metal, with even younger upstarts like Asking Alexandria entering the fray with vigorous enthusiasm and youthful energy.

WITH ONE LAST BREATH has arrived to carry on the tradition of raucous English metal, bringing with them a dash of hardcore, screamo and electrified melody for modern measure. With a nod toward American contemporaries like Devil Wears Prada, Attack Attack! and We Came As Romans, the five men in the York, England based band have staked their claim in Generation Heavy with an arsenal of songs filled with positivity, passion and power.
