Finland is really trying to cram this whole “most stable country on Earth” notion down the rest of our goddamn throats. Baby’s Blood, through sheer force and ugliness, aims to lower Finland’s standing with a cache of speed-addled wreckers --- 4 hate-centric odes that target the lynchpins of modern existence: fashion, sex, law, punk, life itself. This most pungent of fruits comes courtesy of Drew Owen (SICK THOUGHTS) and some of his Finnish compatriots, collecting only the most depraved musings from their temporary terror program. That’s right: combustible and completely shattered punk, shootin’ from the hip, dead on arrival. OK, Finland --- EPPU NORMAALI, snow, cabbage rolls, HURRIGANES, we get it already! Wash that all bullshit from your mouth with a gulp of Baby’s Blood. Recommended if you hate absolutely everything! - Mitch Cardwell



Our take: Baby’s Blood are ostensibly from Finland, but Drew Owen’s hands are so all over this project it fits much more comfortably in the Sick Thoughts / DD Owen universe of projects than anything Finnish I’m aware of. If you’re a fan of Drew’s other work, this has everything you expect: nihilistic lyrics; big choruses that sound dumb at first, but after they’re repeated a few times seem strangely profound (see: “Everybody Looks Like a Fucking Idiot”); meaty, garage-punk-meets-HC riffs; and blistering fast tempos that never let up. This guy has this sound and style down to a science, so pick this up if you want to hear more of it… it’ll scratch your itch.
