Tuesday Teardown: Black Breath – Sentenced to Life

“Home of the Grave”

If I could sum up Black Breath‘s newest album up with one word, it’d be “Entombedcore”. Since their debut LP, Heavy Breathing, the Seattle band has really come into their own. Mixing hardcore, thrash and death metal, their newest release Sentenced to Life on Southern Lord really solidifies the band’s sound.

You know how a pair of leather gloves take a little to wear in and form to your hand? That’s how I look at Black Breath over the past few years. It’s like they finally broke in that tough, black leather and the end product is an audio assault. I’ve been listening to the vinyl of the album since it was released and am in love. To be honest, I can’t think of a better Tuesday Teardown at the moment, so read on!

Ryan from Go Means Go has been working hard on the forthcoming Pedalers’ Fair in Seattle:

“Go Means Go is working with Swift Industries and Babecycle on this project in order to shine some light on the talented makers and artisans that live and work in Washington State.  We focused on soft goods for the most part, with 20 vendors attending.  A broad range of goods including custom wool bespoke cycling clothing, leather goods for cycling, caps, bags, panniers and even furniture, we’ve also invited a few custom framebuilders.  ”

Sizemore Bicycle: Matt’s Patinaed Road

Before everyone freaks out, there is a difference between surface rust and deep pitting. Sure, over time, surface rust leads to pitting and structural failure but a little steel wool, some furniture polish or wax to seal it and you’re good as new. Patina is the best paint job nature can provide with you, as long as you do it right. This Sizemore is a perfect example. Matt’s training bike has seen some miles and it shows.
