Sentenced To Life

12" LP

Quick Overview

Clocking in at just over 30 minutes, Sentenced to Life feels like an exclamation point studded with framing nails. Steeped in the punishing gloom of early black metal, but fueled by the muscular attack of thrash and punk, what Seattle's Black Breath lacks in the hooks department, it more than makes up for in sheer, unfiltered menace. There's an overall sense of history at play here, but it never results in the material sounding retro. Tracks like "Feast of the Damned," "Mother Abyss," "Obey," and the relentless title cut may owe a tip of the blade to bands like Motörhead, Corrosion of Conformity, Agnostic Front, and Entombed, but there's more than just hero worship at work here. With Sentenced to Life, Black Breath have crafted a no-nonsense slab of modern hardcore that draws from a diverse set of rules, but yields to none of them.


Southern Lord is proud to unleash the second album from Seattle s barbaric wrecking crew that is Black Breath! Sentenced to Life is the highly-anticipated follow up to the band s raging 2010 debut album, Heaving Breathing. The new album projects an even more vile, metallic sonic attack than it s predecessor....with a bit less rock and roll swagger and more full-on crushing death metal rage. This is a product of furious creativity jammed into a short span of time, written in the seemingly endless Winter after returning from their November 2010 European tour. Bearing 10 thunderous tracks in just under 33 minutes, Sentenced to Life, features such smashing Black Breath hits as Feast of the Damned, Doomed, Forced Into Possession, Home of the Grave and of course the title anthem, Sentenced to Life. The band once again recorded at God City Studios with Kurt Ballou and had the finished product mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side. Easily the band s most thunderous recording to date, Black Breath sentence every listener to a life of headbanging after spinning this on
