In 1988 - around the time that Saint Vitus were dropped from SST and in a state of flux - legendary frontman Scott "Wino" Weinrich joined the LA metal band Lost Breed as their singer for around nine months. During that time they played a bunch of gigs and recorded a demo. Wino then hooked up again with Vitus for the next couple of years and Lost Breed went on to do two albums thanks to Wino's connection with Hellhound Records of Germany, Save Yourself and The Evil In You And Me.
Musically Lost Breed are less all-out "doom" than a lot of the Hellhound bands, though they definitely have thier nods to the masters of all, Black Sabbath. Listening to the driving riffing of "Coffin Cheater" and "Soul Chariot" there's most certainly a heavy Randy Rhoades-era Ozzy/early Quiet Riot influence going on, and Wino's soulful vocals and lyrics totally set the band apart. These guys have a craft to writing a song that very few bands possess and I'm amazed that they never became huge. The song "Lost Breed" has to be amongst my favourite pieces of music ever recorded, the lyrics and delivery are absolutely 100% what it's all about for me. "Chosen few, for life we bleed, forever true, a lost breed".
