BREED OF AGGRESSION was born out of Scott McClellan and Susie Hoffman Beahm‘s shared goal to create extreme metal that is organic, free, and without defining limits to their sound. Their first album, ‘This Is My War‘, exemplifies that approach, delivering eight intense tracks produced by Destrophy frontman and guitarist, Ari Mihalopoulos, that boldly announce the arrival of this dynamic duo. ‘This Is My War‘ will be released worldwide on Dark Star Records on November 5th, pre-orders are underway now. The first single and video is ‘Unmasked‘.

Pre-order ‘This Is My War‘: Here
Tony Martin, former Black Sabbath lead singer on BREED OF AGGRESSION, “Susie sings really well and the talent is surely there, the tracks that stand out for me are ‘Unmasked‘ and ‘I Am The Enemy‘“.
Susie Hoffman Beham discusses making the album, “This album has been two years in the making and I couldn’t ask for a better partner in its creation. The landscape Scott painted allowed me to open my mind and create something that came organically and without boundaries.”
Scott McClellan talking about meeting Susie, “I had been writing a metal album & was in search of a singer for it for a while, Through mutual friends I was introduced to Susie, I asked her to audition, the 1st song I was completely blown away by her power! I was not looking for a female vocalist for this album, when I had heard her voice, my opinion was changed right away, her skill stands out like no other in both male and female metal singers, that being said BREED OF AGGRESSION was born.”
