Birth A.D are a band from Texas that plays a very old school form of crossover/thrash metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "I Blame You" which was released by Unspeakable Axe Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine hardcore, punk and thrash together with the end result being 80's style crossover and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all hardcore/thrash style shouts and yells with some gang style back ups being utilized at times as well as some samples, while the lyrics cover violent, hateful and political themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and old school sound with the album sounding like it could of easily come out during the 80's and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Birth A.D are a very great sounding old school crossover band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Equal Opportunity" "This Scene Sucks" "Wrong Again" and "Parasites Die". RECOMMENDED BUY.
