Twelve Inch

Our debut 12" is available for purchase from Deadbeat Records.

Birth - 12" Cover
Deadbeat says this about the record:
"Devastatingly punishing debut here from Chicago dirtbags BIRTH!  Bathed in the same filth as Brainbombs, Drunks With Guns, Flipper and Big Black; BIRTH take cro-magnon riffs and shred 'em to bits as the sky collapses around 'em and they're buried in a pile of smoldering barbed wire. Think heavy, sludgey as fuck, proto punk that sounds like the Electric Eeels covering the Stooges using Sabbath's gear if it were stolen from a scrap yard and made out of knives. Brutally harsh landscapes where beating the shit out of your instruments is therapy and masochism is fun.  Ex Brain Handle.  Artwork by Ilth (Daily Void, Functional Blackouts)."
