Spirit Breaker
Humans are a truly bizarre and paradoxical species. We value little more than we value our own existences—our lives both in a social sense, like who we are and what we do, but also our lives in a more broad sense, as in, what it is to be alive. We spend our lives thinking of ways to try and make ourselves last longer and live better—to exist in a manner that one-ups the generation before us.

But for every instance of our passion and obsession with life, we find ways to squander it and take it away. We kill, destroy, annihilate and erase—not just others, but ourselves. We develop addictions to laziness and complacence; to substance and solitude, shutting ourselves away from the very things that might make us feel more alive.

Spirit Breaker, and their aptly named 2017 full-length record Human Nature, are here to change that. As passionate as it is punchy and aggressive—as powerful as it is progressive—Human Nature cuts through the layers of falsehoods and facades that surround us and detract from our lives to reveal the very essence of humanity within each and every one of us. Blending anger and bitterness with beauty and breath-taking melodies in a way that sounds as if someone put Northlane, Invent, Animate, In Hearts Wake and a little bit of the frigid, wintery Detroit air into a blender, Spirit Breaker’s Human Nature truly captures what it is to be human.
