Birth (Defects) is not a party band unless your idea of a good time is collapsing the entire structure of an already ruinous and burning society (in which case, hello, nice to meet you, kindred spirit). Ragged and furious, keening and screeching -- they are noise rock without the regressive bro factor, with arrows aimed to puncture not just your ego but their own. You will probably like them if you like Killdozer, and other such comic inversions of masculinity. Birth (Defects) is from Baltimore and would appreciate you not asking if they've seen The Wire. Nick Skrobicz (Multicult) recorded and mastered the newest Birth (Defects) release. Birth (Defects) have a heart, goddammit. RIYL: godheadSilo, Keiji Haino, Love 666, Lamps, Fake Limbs. Black/white/grey marbled vinyl (every copy is a bit different colour) in black/white sleeve with obi-strip and digital download coupon. Limited edition of 300 copies.
