Slave Birth is a new two-piece grind and hardcore punk fusion from Canberra, Australia. Two kids who grew up on the southern side of the lake mixing together elements of traditional, violent and aggressive grindcore and metal with the youthful intensity of hardcore punk and thrash. One of the only good demo cassettes to ever come out of the dirty south.

This is the thirty-seventh release through Lacklustre Records (LCK037). It was available on a run of thirty cassette tapes in clear jewel cases, now sold out and out of print. Totally siked to be working with a new local band! Support Canberra music, big or small. New or old.

Slave Birth is:
Liam McPherson and Rohan Beviss.

Recorded and mixed by Elliot Johnson at Rob's Garage in Lyneham, Canberra, Australia.

Track Name: Nepsis
Chaos inside this skull.
Numb, perish, hide.
Given in to the suppression of disclosure.
Track Name: Bloat
Corporate vultures dictate our states.
Parliamentary puppets in place.
String yourself up by your necktie.
Greedy bastards bleeding us dry.
Drown. Suffer.
Power corrosion.
Track Name: Upheaval
Self hate turned against.
Internal malice outward spray.
Happily miserable. No approval.
Taken, beaten, ridiculed.
Never forgotten. Retribution. Rotten filth.
No way out, choices made.
Life returns what you gave.
Track Name: Snake
Thought you were my mate but you were just a snake.
Track Name: Sufferance
Fuck this life I was force fed.
Send me to the depths, send me to the abyss.
Bred, dread, bled, oblivion.
Please, I beg mercy, take me.
How could you do this to us? Innocent lives.
Ignorance is bliss. Under your knives.
All I know is living hell. Terrified.
Send me back to the abyss. Genocide.
Track Name: Population Control
Human delusion, unnatural conclusion.
Unjust control abuse. Massacre. Ravager.
Time to cull man instead...
Population. Kill it.
Track Name: Untitled
Born a fucking worm in the dirt.
Eyes stitched shut. My tongue bound.
What demoralised god created me?
Was it for his own fucking amusement?
Internal anguish plagues my feeble mind.
The pain of thy flesh pales to the pain inside.
The pain of thy flesh will free me from life.
