So, who's up for another blistering, eye-gouging round of tuneage from Black Breath?

Fists and Pabst tall-boys raised in unison, right?

Well, come Sept. 25, the Seattle ragers' third LP, "Slaves Beyond Death," will attack the masses of metalists via the band's usual partner in crime Southern Lord Recordings, according to an Earsplit PR release. Converge's Kurt Ballou again twiddled the knobs at GodCity Studio in Salem, Mass., during the winter of 2014. Italian artist Paolo Girardi painted the cover with his mighty brush.

Here's the track listing:

 1. Pleasure, Pain, Disease
 2. Slaves Beyond Death
 3. Reaping Flesh
 4. Seed Of Cain
 5. Arc Of Violence
 6. A Place Of Insane Cruelty
 7. Burning Hate
 8. Chains Of The Afterlife

The band will no doubt rip through some of those numbers on Aug. 15 at The 666th Annual Linda's Fest, 707 E. Pine St., Seattle. The free gig begins at 5 p.m. and will also feature Christian Mistress, Helm's Alee, Kinski and VHS.

Prior to the new album's release, Black Breath will destroy West Coast venues alongside Goatsnake, Battalion of Saints and Obliterations.
