BLACK BREATH
SENTENCED TO LIFE
SOUTHERN LORD

Sidestepping the sophomore slump, Seattle quintet Black Breath serves up a menacing 10-track, 33 minute mauling entitled SENTENCED TO LIFE. Tightening their crusty Entombed by way of Dismember D-beat predilections by whittling song lengths down (“Sentenced to Life”) and increasing hardcore sensibilities (“Doomed”), this squad administers ferocious buzzsaw riffs as if they hailed from Stockholm and not The Emerald City (“Home of the Grave”) with a heavy handed death and roll tinged force in place to usher total destruction in from all fronts (“Forced Into Possession”). Unadulterated, relentless, and without remorse (“Endless Corpse”), SENTENCED TO LIFE rates as a bonafide modern crossover metal classic brimming over with the hostility and aggression followers of extreme metal crave. -Mike SOS
