Born From Pain's Call To Action
November 7, 2008
Born From Pain’s
fifth and most thought provoking album to date, 'Survival'
, will be available everywhere November 11th, 2008. To celebrate this album, Born From Pain
are challenging YOU to take action by spotlighting different organizations that help make this world a better place.
This Month’s Action
Doctors Without Borders
We have decided on a new action this month: Doctors Without Borders
. Read all about the organization down below. Solidarity is the keyword once again. Stand together, stand strong. We have put links to several methods one can donate. Born From Pain
will be donating their part at the end of the month from merch and show money.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières
) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. Today, MSF
provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care or natural disasters.
provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF
reserves the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected crises, to challenge inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to advocate for improved medical treatments and protocols.
work is based on the humanitarian principles of medical ethics and impartiality. The organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people caught in crisis regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. MSF
operates independently of any political, military, or religious agendas. Medical teams conduct evaluations on the ground to determine a population's medical needs before opening programs. The key to MSF's
ability to act independently in response to a crisis is its independent funding. Eighty-nine percent of MSF's
overall funding (and 100 percent of MSF
funding) comes from private sources, not governments. In 2006, MSF
had more than three million individual donors and private funders worldwide.
is neutral. The organization does not take sides in armed conflicts, provides care on the basis of need alone, and pushes for increased independent access to victims of conflict as required under international humanitarian law. MSF's
principles of action are described in the organization's 1971 founding charter, which established a framework for its activities.
medical teams often witness violence, atrocities, and neglect in the course of their work, largely in regions that receive scant international attention. At times, MSF
may speak out publicly in an effort to bring a forgotten crisis to public attention, to alert the public to abuses occurring beyond the headlines, to criticize the inadequacies of the aid system, or to challenge the diversion of humanitarian aid for political interests.
Rest of the World
We had a lot of positive feedback and people telling us they have been joining in. I hope it made a difference! Born From Pain
have donated 300 euro in money from the cd release show weekend to Amnesty International

Born From Pain Announce New Vocalist
June 1, 2008
Dutch Metallic Hardcore unit Born From Pain
have isued the following update:
“After a long period of not knowing what was going to happen with Kevin's
throat situation, Kevin
was forced to stop shouting for Born From Pain
by doctor's advice. The amount of shows on the schedule would have left Kevin's
vocal chords scarred and marked for life and obviously he was not willing to take that risk. We had already seen it coming for a while as his situation has not been improving since Kevin's
last show in December 2007. As Born From Pain
had already looked to everybody who they thought were suitable for the job after original singer Che
left, the only logical outcome left was to put original member Rob Franssen
and former singer for bands like Feeding The Fire
, Wheel Of Progress
on the mic.“
This is what Rob
has to say:
had decided to leave the band, many people who are involved with the band urged me to pick up the mic, and since everybody was well-convinced I should be the one taking over due to my past experiences as a singer/front man and being the main, longest lasting face of the band, I just did. We actually never really considered this option but it seemed right to us too and I got increasingly motivated by the trust put in me by many and started practicing on the mic with the band. I feel great doing this as I have always written all the lyrics and vocal lines for the songs and I can now shout them myself. The fact that many people seem to feel I am doing a good job is really stimulating of course. Besides that, I feel like this is where I am supposed to be, it feels great again."
Working hard in the practice room for the last couple of months has resulted in a Born From Pain
with a new vocal style that has a more pissed off and aggressive edge (maybe some would say a more hardcore sounding style of singing), adding a new dimension to the Born From Pain
sound. The band is really happy with the outcome and has already been writing the majority of the upcoming album with this line-up. The band is happy to be doing their brand of heavy music and developing further by adding vocals that are not the typical death metal style vocals one would expect. Rob
has already started doing live shows.
Born From Pain
is currently working on a permanent replacement for the open bass player position.

BORN FROM PAIN was founded in the early summer of ྜྷ after the demise of the glorious Feeding The Fire. Rob, formerly of Point Of No Return, Feeding The Fire, Backdraft and Wheel Of Progress, and Che, decided to start a new , raw , heavy and in-your-face hardcore band, along with their friends Wouter, formerly of Feeding The Fire, and Serve , formerly of Quarantine. The outcome was Born From Pain. The band started doing gigs late summer of that very same year, unleashing the rage upon mankind. Playing an energetic mix of modern NY-style hardcore, with a big metal influence, combined with lyrics spewing anger and frustration, they've earned themselves a lot of respect over the years.
Since that summer Born From Pain have been playing tons of shows with a wide variety of bigger, and smaller, hardcore and metal acts. Leaving crowds burned and beaten by their ever-raging live performance. 8 years, 4 CD�s and numerous tours later they are the well oiled live-machine they are known to be.
After the release of the �Immortality� mcd on GSR Music, Born From Pain predominantly played the underground hardcore scene, rounding the tour-cycle off with a successful tour alongside cult hardcore band Cold As Life. Not long after that the release of their premiere full-length release �Reclaiming The Crown� followed and made the band a steady and growing factor in the European heavy-hardcore scene. Successful tours with Hatebreed and the Eastpak Resistance tour were embarked upon and were the first sign of the steady rise of one of Europe�s most renowned metalcore acts to date.
After the overwhelming feedback to their second full-length release �Sands Of Time�, Born From Pain embarked on tour with the likes of Terror, Madball as well as the bigger metal/hardcore festivals all over Europe. After that the crusade left Japan and the USA smashed to pieces by the ferocity of the Born From Pain war machine.
Having established their reputation and respect the band geared up to record their 3rd full-length effort, once again, at Tue Madsen�s Antfarm Studio. �In Love With The End� saw the light of day in April of 2005 and once more, had the band receiving amazing feedback. The intensity of playing shows got higher and Born From Pain set out for a full 1,5 years of touring. Their first official head-line tour with Zero Mentality became fact, after which the summer festivals followed with great success. The beat went on with supporting great bands like Six Feet Under and Soulfly, just like the all-out crushing performances during the Persistence Tour (alongside Hatebreed, Agnostic Front and Napalm Death). The summer of 2006 already looks like the best summer ever with confirmations for Wacken Open Air, With Full Force, Earthshaker Festival and a couple more to follow. After having conquered Europe, Born From Pain is now ready to release a devastating blow to the rest of the world. Schedules for Japan, USA and South America are being set up while we speak.
In the meantime Born From Pain is busy writing for their new cd due to be recorded in August 2006. Expect all Born From Pain trademarks, like groove, aggressiveness, heaviness and sheer pressure to be pushed to unknown heights.
Born From Pain will be touring the world for this release, before and after the recordings always and anywhere! Beware!
