Witness a Rebirth

I've got time before work and this record is next to me so as usual it's another post way out of synch with stuff I've received hah!

I used to love Strife back in the day although I never really got into their last
album Angermeans. I can't even remember why. Was it rushed? Did it suck? Maybe I should investigate that one again.
Anyway, this is their new album and first for 11 years the aptly titled Witness a Rebirth. I've only had a few listens but I like it, I don't know if it's a rebirth more a return to form and it picks up nicely where In This Defiance left off.
Igor Cavalera plays drums on this thing and I'm sure if memory serves he did some drumming on In This Defiance too.

Now this thing at the point of pre-order was pictured and described as white with a 'red splodge', but as you can see this is definitely more red with a white haze, I guess that's just how some turned out. This colour is limited to 100 copies. Nice looking gatefold too.


  1. After the Anger Means album I wrote this band off completely. I was really hesitant to check out this new album, but I grabbed a free download, and I'm glad that I took the time. This is surprisingly really good...a nice return to form.

  2. Great minds think alike. I ordered this color too.

  3. i should get one of these myself. colour looks nice!
