Short, raw and intense is the best way to describe Born Blind. Featuring ex-NIV bassist Judd Morgan on vocals and Kurt Love on drums, the rest of the band is made up of Nate Jerrell (guitar) and Chris Beckett (bass). Born Blind deliver a dynamic music set that has a great live edge throughout. Far from predictable, 'Pressing On' boasts some intriguing arrangements. Songs of note include "Passing On", where Morgan's screamed vocals are interspersed with spoken word; and the groove-orientated anthem of "Never Look Back", which speaks of renewed opportunities. If you like the more traditional, old school approach to hard music, then Born Blind's 'Pressing On' is a good place to start.
