You guys are truly one of the best bands I have heard on Bandcamp. Your heavy lyrics and stunning guitar riffs remind so much of early heavy metal, like Black Sabbath or Dio. Thank you so much, and keep going

Finally! We present the Ripple edition of the legendary album by The Rare Breed. First vinyl pressing of their landmark 2016 LP,. all new art by Kyrre Bjurling
Looking for Today is the debut full-length by Los Angeles trio The Rare Breed, and as thick as the band lays it on in touting their love of Sabbathian ways — and why not; “Mountain of Dreams” takes them to near-Sheavy levels of Sab worship and they named their album after a Black Sabbath song — it’s hard to listen to songs like “The Stranger” and “Rusted Diamond” and not think of more modern, Uncle Acid-style garage doom swing. “Visions” has more of a later-Ozzy-era vibe, and “Echoes” positively gallops in the drums, but in its shuffle, closer “Witches Lore” has some of that now-tinged rhythm as well (and some gallop of its own to boot), so there’s more going on than just “we heard ‘Sweet Leaf’ and decided to start a band,” however much guitarist Oscar de la Torre‘s vocals might be derived from the work of a certain Mr. Osbourne.
Wherever it was coming from, The Rare Breed released Looking for Today back in the BeforeTime, in the long-long-ago — 2016 — and this month the record will get its post-apocalyptic reissue via Ripple Music
Only 100 of the blood splattered variants were pressed, along with black vinyl and CD's.
This album in now nearly a lost classic. Don't miss out on your chance to pick one up.
