In the fearsome tradition of crossover thrash forged by acts like D.R.I., S.O.D., C.O.C, and a lot of other bands with three-letter acronyms comes BIRTH A.D.! The band formed in 2008 in Austin, Texas, as a side project of Candlelight Recording artists and underground American black metal legion AVERSE SEFIRA, and have been kicking up an unholy racket ever since.
BIRTH A.D.‘s first offering is their self-produced EP, Stillbirth of a Nation. Their snarling crossover anthems stand a head and shoulders above the current thrash pack, combining the political fury of punk rock and balls-out intensity of vintage speed metal with their own metal thrashing madness. No gimmicks, no high-tops, no trends – Birth A.D. are the real fucking deal. Their debut effort is chaos incarnate, a raging slab of sociopolitical outrage and razor-edged riffs guaranteed to incite riots and draw blood.
The band’s inaugural outing was a successful eleven-date tour of Japan in October 2009, and since then have appeared with numerous high-profile touring thrash metal acts throughout the United States. BIRTH A.D. is currently working on new material and seeking label support in order to crush, kill, destroy!
BIRTH A.D. is:
Jeff Tandy – Yelling, Bass
Brian Morrison – Guitars
Mark Perry – Drums
