As enjoyable and righteously fierce as Breather Resist are, they start and end with the Jesus Lizard. Caveat listener- if you're uncomfortable with a group proudly wearing a seminal predecessor's influence on their sleeve, then Alt-Tab yourself out of this browser window and give your (hopefully) well-worn copies of Liar and Goat and Bang another go-around. Charmer takes little time to get up to speed. The introductory track, "An Insomniac's Complexion", opens with three quick hits, pauses for a moment atop a bed of squealing feedback, and then begins thrashing. The group can squeeze five minutes' worth of song into 120 seconds ("A Passing Glance"), stretch their hyper kinetic pummeling out to comfortably fit a six-minute frame ("Amphetamine Praise"), and switch seamlessly between pensive throbbing and full-on fury without breaking stride.

Charmer by Breather Resist, released 05 October 2004 1. An Insomniac’s Complexion 2. A Social Worker’s Nightmare 3. Midas In Reverse 4. Honest To God 5. As Far As Goodbyes Go 6. Keep ’Em In Stitches 7. Long Nights, Short Fuses 8. Loose Lipped Error 9. A Passing Glance 10. Amphetamine Praise 11. Astigmatism Produced by Kurt Ballou (Isis, Cave In, Give Up the Ghost, Converge), Charmer (JT1098) takes off in many ways where their Only In Morning EP left off, that is to say in throws of total madness, the end result is an absolute force to reckon with; equally vicious, progressive and thoroughly u. .
Breather Resist ups the ante with a hellacious yet pleasing speed-riddled guitar on "Honest to God," with Evan Patterson stealing the spotlight. The record is highly inventive yet with all the nuances of a neo-nu-metal album. 1 An Insomniac's Complexion Breather Resist 3:28. 2 A Social Worker's Nightmare Breather Resist 2:46. 3 Midas in Reverse Breather Resist 3:38.
This album is damn near perfect. Deadguy, Coalesce, Jesus Lizard, and Botch, all in equal measure. Young Widows and Jaye Jayle are great, but man do I miss me some BR. kris.
