Desert Thrashers REBIRTH have launched a campaign on Kickstarter.com, a funding platform for creative project, to raise funds for the completion of their forthcoming album, "From The Ashes, Arise". Vocalist / lyricist Marshal "Fucking" Beck (REIGN OF VENGEANCE) issued the following statement regarding the campaign: "I’ve decided that if the extreme Metal community does not step up in getting this REBIRTH album completed that we are going to re-write what we’ve already recorded and make it sound like an even more commercialized version of 5 FINGER DEATH PUNCH, LIMP BIZKIT and LINKIN PARK. I will then make sure to advertise it to the world as being an extreme Metal album. Our past releases have had over 2 million downloads with only 200 of them paid for. Do your part and we’ll do ours. Watch the video here." More REBIRTH info at www.facebook.com/Rebirthmetal
