Black Breath – Sentenced To Life

Southern Lord – 2012

There’s certain music that just makes you pull ‘the face.’ The face is achieved when maximum riff peaks and your facial muscles are contorted to look like you just drank sour milk but somewhat enjoyed it. This album is a face fest. Swedish death metal vibes meet hardcore immediacy with a solid serving of tasty hooks. I wasn’t stoked on the latest album when they ditched the hardcore mashup and went full death metal, but this album and the one before it are solid blue and gold.

FFO: Swedish meatballs and moshed potatoes.
