Born Blind was one of the first Christian hardcore bands I had ever heard. I was really young and always considered them and Sick of it All as the same kind of hardcore, because I really was into the more 90s metalcore sounding stuff like Morning Again, Culture, Disembodied, Chokehold, Converge, etc. Never knew too much about them but that they were one of the early Facedown Records bands in the late 90s, that they all used to play in No Innocent Victim, they were around from about 1998 until 2001, and that they played more punk styled hardcore. Anyway, here's a short bio of Born Blind from their Wikipedia page:
"The Christian punk rock four-piece Born Blind was originally from San Diego, California, playing shows in the western part of the United States. All four members of the group- Judd Morgan, Chris Beckett, Kurt Love, and Nate Jarrell- were former members of No Innocent Victim before forming Born Blind. They released their debut album, Pressing On, on Facedown Records in late 1998. Their riveting old-school punk sound continued on their last album One For All in mid-2000 on Solid State Records. They only did one U.S. tour in late 2000 before calling it quits in January 2001."
Check out below for their second, and last, full length record. I will have up their debut full length record, Pressing On, in a later post when I finally get to it.
