In the politically charged 1990s, there were a slew of bands whose music I loved even though I was vehemently opposed to some or all of their politics. Abnegation were definitely one of those bands, and this 7" is a shining example of why. I love chunky, metal-tinged hardcore, but always loathed pro-life sentiments, and I knew I was in for a battle within myself as soon as I heard the heartbeat opening the first track, "Birthright". However, this definitely didn't stop me from buying Abnegation's future releases.
