"I BLAME YOU"
UNSPEAKABLE AXE RECORDS
"I BLAME YOU" is the debut full length album from Texas Crossover greats BIRTH A.D.
This is the follow up to their self released EP "STILLBIRTH OF A NATION". This is also
the first release from UNSPEAKABLE AXE RECORDS, which is a sub lab of DARK
DESCENT RECORDS. BIRTH A.D. have been reeking havoc all across Texas since 2008
and now plan on taking their madness to the masses across the globe. "I BLAME YOU" is a
major throwback to the great Crossover bands from the '80's like S.O.D., MO.D., D.R.I. &
C.O.C. but with a modern twist. They have that killer Hardcore / Thrash Metal sound, that
I grew up listening to and remember what a great time it was in music when these two styles
merged. It was like a great unity in music when it was OK for Punks to like Metal and vice
versa. I was heavily into both styles so I loved it. BIRTH A.D. reminds me a lot of the great
D.R.I. spewing forth a massive assault of killer grooved out tunes with a crunchy and raw
Thrash guitar sound and a Hardcore beat with a Punk attitude. The vocals are done in the
same style as the music and reminded me of THE SPUDMONSTERS meet THE
SKATNIGS (without the Industrial influences) meet AGNOSTIC FRONT. If you add in
some touches of modern bands like LETHAL AGGRESSION & TOXIC HOLOCAUST
with some old DISCHARGE & FINAL CONFLICT then you would get a sense of the
goods BIRTH A.D. is delivering. I loved these guys and they really made me long for the
good old days when you could go to a show, hear some great music, bash some heads in the
pit and everybody was still having a good time. Hail the new wave of Crossover bands like
BIRTH A.D. making the scene great again! These guys are absolutely amazing!!!
