"Sentenced to Life is ten tracks of blistering and unforgiving intensity. The guitars run a wide gambit of executions and styles, one moment blasting forward with a speedy black metal riff only to open open up in to some meaty, low-end-induced Swedish death metal, all while taking full advantage of Ballouís ability to capture a gargantuan guitar sound with vicious low-end distortion. The vocal attacks on this album are raw and irate but executed with an annunciation that is both clear and powerful. The groove section is sealed off with bass work thicker than sea shit and drum foundation that is more than adequate with ample fills, double bass, and even d-beats sprinkled in."
"It is clear Black Breath have done their homework, pulling from arenas of European black metal and Swedish death metal. What separates this band from the rest of the pack is their ability to take these elements and forge ahead, presenting the music world with a new exciting take on these musical frameworks. We already have another contender for top album of 2012."
