Toronto Is Broken & Breed

Toronto Is Broken teams up once more with Reebz for a turbulent nu-metal-infused drum & bass single ‘Breed‘.

Featuring a brutal vocal performance from Reebz, ‘Breed’ ventures deeper into rock territory. The track sports a decidedly malevolent atmosphere as it explores themes of mental illness as seen from the inside out as featured in the lyrics. W

ith the track the pair also dropped the official music video that perfectly illustrates the themes in black and white macabre fashion that are found in the single, and you can check it out here at RAMzine.
‘Breed’ also features a brutal, pulse-hammering guitar performance and production work from George Lever layered with turbulent rhythms from start to finish. The single is another example of Toronto Is Broken‘s skills at fusing genres into something complex, new, and uniquely his own.
