CANCER BATS

More from this Band



Exclusive Canadian pressing on coloured vinyl limited to 1000 copies worldwide. 
 
Gaining an American release about three months after it came out in the CANCER BATS' Canadian homeland, Birthing the Giant is about as close as contemporary post-hardcore punk has yet come to the insurrectionary furor of the early MC5. CANCER BATS are less explicitly political than the Five, for all that lead-off single "French Immersion" makes use of the word "revolution" in its chorus, but there's definitely a seething anger to singer Liam Cornier's I-hate-everything lyrics and sore-throat vocals. Guitarist Scott Middleton has exactly the right ratio of garage rock distortion and hesher-metal riffage throughout songs like "Grenades" and "Diamond Mine," and the rhythm section has the ragged-but-right looseness that the best punk requires. There's absolutely nothing new on Birthing the Giant, but CANCER BATS make excellent use of their influences throughout.
