Multiple searches yielded nothing:

Crossover Thrash band started by members of Averse Sefira

Their EP Stillbirth of a Nation was the second greatest release of 2009.

@ Dark Legions Archive
@ Metal Archives

Help finish Birth A.D.'s new album!
Birth A.D. is in the final stages of producing their debut full-length, "I Blame You", and they need your help! A good independent production isn't cheap, so anything you contribute to assist in the mixing and mastering process of this soon-to-be classic of crossover thrash is appreciated.

Your donation will be commemorated with the inclusion of your name on the album's thanks list, and you will be counted as part of the new Birth A.D. fan club, the Seven Billion Graves Brigade.

The Misfits had the Fiend Club, Voivod has the Iron Gang, and this is your chance to get your name immortalized as a collaborator and conspirator! Years from now when the band is huge, overrated, and not half as cool as when they started off, you can break out the album everyone really liked and say, "There's my name!"

Pledge now, and CAUSE PROBLEMS!

This band needs your help. So, you know, help them.

Normally can't stand bands that ask for money, but seeing as how Birth A.D. are one of the few who deserve my money, you bet your ass I'll throw a few bucks their way. It's kind of like I'm just paying for the item, but I'm not being selfish and buying it because I want to.

Engram, obviously.

To everybody pledging, you guys are awesome. This is a band that really deserves the support they need. To everybody else, at least spread the word.

Any band that still does FIFH covers is worthy of some money.

They are almost half way to the goal of $2000 . Browsing the rest of the site- they really aren't asking for much and probably have more integrity than 90% of other bands.

I pledged 20 so i can get a copy of the EP. :3

Small update:
In just 6 days, we're halfway to our goal! Thanks to each and every one of you for supporting this album and Birth A.D.! We're really amazed by the incredible response, and we look forward to making it count when the album it out and we start coming to your towns and cause problems!

Since this is going so well, I've decided to add a special bonus item - a test pressing of the "Stillbirth of a Nation" EP on vinyl! This is a one-of-a-kind unique item (as the kids are calling it on the Skyrims), and we'll even autograph the sleeve! Anyone who contributed is automatically entered for a chance to win!

If you haven't contributed yet, now's the time to get in on the action!

We'll pick a random winner at the end of the drive next month. Thanks again for contributing, and good luck!!!

Best Regards,

Jeff and Birth A.D.


This appears to be going well. My anticipation for this release has me quivering in my breeches.

At this rate they should be able to put out a few full lengths.

EDIT: I'm pretty sure at least 500 of this is going to spent on skulls and pictures of tanks.

tank photography is essential if it doesn't go on the cover it makes a great reference then you get album covers like these





really the only smart investment in today's market and skulls hold their value really well

Small FYI:
Since some folks have asked, if you want to get involved in supporting this project but you're not savvy with e-commerce, please contact us at birthad[at]gmail[dot]com, and we can accept your contribution through more traditional means. We don't have too far to go now! Thanks for everything!

Time is running out to give, but they are closing in. I don't want to advertise or anything but GIVE THIS BAND YOUR FUCKING MONEY, please.

So... what does everyone think of the EP? There doesn't appear to have been much discussion of it, either at the time of its release or now.

Excellent news! Can't wait for the depraved holocaust they are going to bring for their next album. I don't want to be that guy who bases things off album covers, but I have a feeling it's going to be album of the year.

Hmm, so assuming the Metal Archives are correct as usual there will be eighteen tracks total. Apparently they are rerecording all ten from the EP and throwing them back in there. "Wrong Again" was rather lackluster. The vocals weren't as rapid fire. The lyrics weren't as witty or catchy. The music wasn't as original or intense. Not bad, just not great. Hopefully that's one of the weaker new tracks. At least we know 10/18 will be good; that's over half heh.

They're branching out; "Wrong Again" is more emotional than funny. It's not party thrash, it's like some of the stuff DRI did on 4ofakind.

I'm with Born Headless on this one. I don't think it matters what context you put it in.

I really wanna like this band, but yeah, they're just not that good. I don't hold any grief against Jeff Tandy, but it is somewhat concerning that he hypes up and speaks of this band as if it were elite when in reality his other project, Averse Sefira actually were elite; consequently, 2/3 of Birth AD = Averse Sefira, but I guess that just goes to show that the guitarist of that band was pretty much the mastermind behind their aspiration toward epic, atmospheric effect, so perhaps more ambitious music is simply beyond Tandy's ability to imagine or compose.

edit: just noticed the posts on the last page, vhat a tweest~! Good taste VG (I somewhat prefer Advent Parallax, though both albums possess rare grandeur).

Well Averse Sefira is dead, and what makes them feel that Birth AD is elite is probably their stance. Which is... well, elitist.
Also, I wasn't too big on Wrong Again or the new Kill Everybody.
This new one ain't bad though

So far, I still like the EP much more, but I'll still probably end up buying this at some point
