This is one of many promos that slipped through the cracks over the years and, unfortunately, Extremity (this is the one from Oakland, California) split up after this album. The album didn't quite click on the first listen, but the more I listened to Coffin Birth, the more I liked it. Extremity do it old school and mostly fast, but not insanely so, and there's quite a bit that will stick in your head as many songs here are very memorable beats that are guaranteed to leave a trace, whether you like it or not. The album is heavy as fuck, it feels like you're taking a beating at times, but they have these melodic bits that add some catchiness, and the speed of the delivery is sure to break your neck if you try to headbang along. Now, like most old-school death metal albums, Coffin Birth contains a lot of elements that you've heard before and does not actually break any new grounds, but a lot of the enjoyment of metal music is in the band's attitude and delivery, and Extremity sure know how to deliver the goods with conviction and show you one hell of a good time.
