"Birthplace are a metalcore band from Japan with some sick thrashy riffs."
There isn't TOO much to say about this band but that doesn't mean you shouldn't pick this album up. I mainly found them trying to look for some more Japanese screamo and post-hardcore to add to my collection and stumbled across. For a standard hardcore band these guys know how to rip shit up. Playing in the style of old school metalcore bands like Integrity, Starkweather, and Chokehold, Birthplace tear up the fucking place with their devastatingly awesome chugs combined with the fast and thrashy guitar riffs along with the aggressive vocals I think they might be straight edge as well judging from the bands they're connected with on last.fm but don't take my word for it. It's good to know that there's SOME good metalcore that exists out there in Japan because god forbid they didn't mock the US's shitty trends for once, right? Put your faith into the Japanese metalcore scene for once and be sure to check out this release.
