Fresh from the clingwrap, a scratch right through most of track one causes loud popping. Very poor quality control from the factory. This is a pity as this is a very good album with some of Wolfe's most memorable songs and singing.

Not a very good pressing. It is noisy, especially on side A and the song 'Birth of Violence', which saturates as if there was dust on the needle. It's a shame as this record is really beautiful, one of the year's best.

Typical GZ Media product - deformed bowl shaped vinyl sealed with greasy fingerprints on.
Pressing is good though, almost no background noise.

Be careful not to confuse this variant of the LP with the other red versions!

Really enjoy the music. Sadly my copy has a defect on the title American Darkness which locks the groove. The production of the music is great but typical shitty GZ media QC. Seriously - when will labels stop using this pressing facility?

If for no other reason, Birth of Violence is a great album for showcasing Chelsea Wolfe's superior vocal talents. But even beyond this plus, it's another album that finds her pushing sonic and lyrical boundaries - and as a lyricist she's definitely top notch. On Birth of Violence the songs seems to take a more personal turn, yet without being obvious or confined to a specific narrative. Her knack for personal and evocative symbolism is something I've always admired about her lyrical output and on this album it's even more refined and focused.

I was a little thrown off when the label advertised this new record as a "return" to the style of "Unknown Rooms." Not that I don't like that album, but the gothic-electronica-industrial-doom explorations of the last three records cover so much new territory so successfully, that the idea of a return to a past successful formula seems absurd.

Fortunately, Birth of Violence keeps the creative forward momentum going and is another solid and strong offering.

I very surprised by the audio quality of this vinyl. It's just sound perfect. The voice of Chelsea Wolfe is in the center of the sound like never before.

The album itself is beautiful and deep.

This sounds really good, some especially beautiful quiet parts. Love the red & black galaxy pressing too.
