A two-camera edit of tech-death heavy hitters DECREPIT BIRTH performing at DNA Lounge in San Francisco, California on July 17 as part of the "Hell In July" tour with SIX FEET UNDER and CANNABIS CORPSE can be seen below.
Drummer Gabe Seeber of Sacramento's fast-rising death metal juggernaut THE KENNEDY VEIL sat behind the kit for DECREPIT BIRTH during the entire "Hell In July" run. With THE KENNEDY VEIL being midway through recording its debut full-length and only bass and vocal tracking remaining, Gabe had the time and availability to hit the road while the rest of the band returns to the studio to wrap up the recording process for "Trinity Of Falsehood".
DECREPIT BIRTH's third album, "Polarity", sold around 1,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 18 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Polarity" was released on July 27, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD artwork was completed by cult artist Dan Seagrave (MORBID ANGEL, ENTOMBED, SUFFOCATION).
Drums for "Polarity" were tracked at Sharkbite Studios (MACHINE HEAD, EXODUS) in Oakland with producer Zack Ohren (ALL SHALL PERISH, SUFFOCATION, IMMOLATION) while the rest of the recordings were overseen by guitarist Matt Sotelo before the entire effort was mixed by Ohren at Castle Ultimate Studios.
