After writing up Ingested’s “Another Breath” earlier today, two things happened to me:

  1. I got Hatebreed’s “Last Breath” stuck in my head.
  2. I got Sevendust’s “Last Breath” stuck in my head.

Being the inquisitive, hard-hitting, Pulitzer Prize eligible journalist that I am, I started to wonder how many metal songs there were called “Last Breath.”

The short answer revealed by my exhaustive investigation? There a lot of metal songs called “Last Breath,” and still more with some variation thereof.

These are some of those songs.

Hatebreed, “Last Breath”

Man, that riff sounds wicked, doesn’t it?

Sevendust, “Last Breath”

This song is really catchy but also kinda depressing.

Saint Vitus, “Last Breath”

The first lyrics in this song are “Hold your breath/ Or I’ll hold it for you,” which is really is not much of a choice at all, when you think about it.

Lazarus A.D., “Last Breath”

I kinda forgot about this one, but it’s really cool. Bonus points for the rad video.

IKILLYA, “Last Breath”

In the interest of full disclosure, I contributed gang vocals and screams to this one.

Lȧȧz Rockit, “Last Breath”

I’ve long wondered why this song isn’t called “Lȧȧz Breath.”

Ensiferum, “Last Breath”

It’s Ensiferum.

Norther, “Last Breath”

This is also a song called “Last Breath.”

Chelsea Grin, “Last Breath”

This is also also a song called “Last Breath.”

Attack Attack!, “Last Breath”

I’ve never actually listened to this song but I assume it’s the worst one.

Honorable Mentions:

Suffocation, “Your Last Breaths”

It took Suffocation 26 years, but they finally wrote a song with the word “breath” in the title.

Devil You Know, “Your Last Breath”

Devil You Know are less generous than Suffocation, offering the listener but a single last breath, instead of multiple last breaths.

Evanescence, “My Last Breath”

Neat.

Black Stone Cherry, “My Last Breath”

I’ve never actually listened to this song, either, but I assume it sucks.

Suicidal Tendenices, “Till My Last Breath”

As though anyone would question Mike Muir’s commitment.

Abysse, “One Last Breath”

Un dernier souffle.

Svart Crown, “Until the Last Breath”

Ebil.

Delain, “Chrysalis – The Last Breath”

You’ll Delove it.

Kataklysm, “The Last Breath I’ll Take Is Yours”

Kataklysm get points for coming up with a slightly-more-clever variation of the phrase in question.

Pelican, “Final Breath”

Just one word off from making the real list!

Naglfar, “Last Breath of Yggdrasil”

Naglfarout.

Tarja, “Until My Last Breath”

I’m mostly including this here because Tarja was nice to me once.

Nightwish, “Cadence of Her Last Breath”

This is one the less-annoying Nightwish songs I’ve ever heard.

Jag Panzer, “Last Dying Breath”

Man, I need to listen to more Jag Panzer.

Sabaton, “Last Dying Breath”

For a more historic overview of concluding insufflations.

Threat Signal, “One Last Breath”

I’ve never actually listened to this song, either, but I assume it sucks.

For the Fallen Dreams, “Last Dying Breath”

I’ve never actually listened to this song, either, but I assume it sucks.

Creed, “One Last Breath”

I’ve never actually listened to this song, either, but I assume it sucks.

Abandon All Ships, “Take One Last Breath”

I’ve never actually listened to this song, either, but I assume it sucks.
