Damn was it really 98. Trailblazer for the future prog sounds of the early 00's. Such a tune, the live experience is something else.

Released December 19, 1998, this was the A side of RHYSYN001, the first ever Rhythm Syndicate release.

While the B side (Clayface) was pretty good in its own right, it could never compete with the sheer presence The Chain had (and still has). Talk about a damn start to a label.

Breeder are up there with the all-time greats, imo. Tyrantanic remains a phenomenal release nearly 23 years after it first hit shelves, and so does The Chain, at a tick over 24 years old.

P.S.: If you look at the label on the B side, you'll see Breeder thanking Sash, which probably should've been Sasha. Or maybe they really liked Encore Une Fois?

In all honesty though, I've always founded breeders tracks a bit boring...yeah I know, heresy. They are quite iconic, but still, its not the most exciting listen all of the times for me. Theres some cool percussion and detail to be found but I think there could have been more to their tracks.
