Hailing from the Midwest, Breed of Aggression is a new heavy metal project founded by Scott McClellan

and Susie Hoffman Beahm.

An accomplished guitarist and songwriter, Scott McClellan’s solo album Brutal Intentions was released on Dark Star Records in 2019. He is the featured guitarist on ex-Black Sabbath frontman Tony Martin’s solo album Thorns, Now Available on Dark Star Records. In addition to Pantera tribute bands Domination and Cemeterygatez: America’s Number One Pantera Tribute Band, Scott has played in The Brain Chiggers and Brotherhood of Spine. McClellan is also an in-demand session guitarist and songwriter.

Susie Hoffman Beahm has been a staple in the music industry for over twenty years, teaming with top manufacturers on instruments that support children’s discovery in the classroom and beyond. An advocate of school music programs and women’s growth in the music industry, Susie frequently volunteers her time toward related causes. She has done session work on a variety of musical projects and is a member of the indie band Natural Oil and Heathen Soul.

Breed of Aggression was born out of McClellan and Beahm’s shared goal to create extreme metal that is organic, free, and without defining limits to their sound. Their first album, This is My War, exemplifies that approach, delivering eight intense tracks produced by Destrophy frontman and guitarist, Ari Mihalopoulos, that boldly announce the arrival of this dynamic duo. For fans of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Huntress, Sevendust, The Agonist, Slayer, Dio and Pantera.
