Birth (Defects)- Ascetic 7” ~BLACK AND WHITE SPLAT WAX!
Birth (Defects)- Ascetic 7”. Two song 7-inch here from the Baltimore outfit featuring Accidental Guest and Fan Death head honcho Sean Gray on vocals. Seeing who is involved here and the label releasing this single, I could tell right off the bat, I’d be in for some filthy noise-rock and thankfull the band obliged. Birth (Defects) put together some fairly thick and relentless noise here, digging heavily into the AmRep back catalog with a guitar tone that sounds vaguely like some of that Mama Tick material mixed with a low-end dominance that could also perk the interests of GodheadSilo fans. This is ragged and furious noise-rock. You will probably like them if you like Killdozer and Unsane or other comsic heavy forms of masculinity. Top notch packaging on this one too as it includes a nice Japanese style-obi strip adorning the 7” cover and these are pressed on nice looking BLACK AND WHITE SPLATTER WAX!
